Where is Everybody?
Two of the largest ports in the United States are Long Beach and San Pedro. These are modern ports that can handle a lot of freight and many ships. Looking at this picture you can see containers of freight on the ground but not much action happening either by land or sea.
Info on the last post: a kayak over the kelp beds in Palos Verdes. The white streaks are low clouds that have been hanging around for the last month.
