    Slide Down the Sand Dunes

    by jenn_d Updated Feb 24, 2003

    Atop a sand dune with my favorite surfer dude,

    For years, homeowners of beachfront property would cross their fingers during our brief and sometimes violent winter storms. The swells would often end up in people's living rooms and the damage to private property was costly.

    The city finally came up with a solution a few years ago and now each fall a team of bulldozers creates artificial sand dunes to keep the tides at bay.

    The dunes seem to bring out the kid in everyone. It is hard to resist not hurling yourself down one. I've even seen people take snow saucers and inner tubes out to the dunes and slide down just for kicks.

    Slick the sea lion sits at the beginning of the Seal Beach Pier. Legend has it that if you rub his snout you will have good luck.
