Swamis Beach - Most Sand Ever. I've been surfing daily for over two decades and I have never seen so much sand at Swamis.
Normally, this little girl would be running across dry reef. Now there is no exposed reef at all, so there are no tidepools for all the tourists to explore.
This makes me wonder about statements like,
Now there's cobble in the summer where there shouldn't be cobble," Aceti said. "Over the years I got spoiled. I got used to running from Moonlight Beach or Stone Steps down to Swami's without any problems. Now, even if it's not high tide, you can get cut off. It's terrible conditions out there."
Aceti has long lobbied for more sand on local beaches, and is a proponent of Encinitas's "sand tax" initiative, which has been placed on the November ballot after failing to pass in the June election.
Aceti has also been promoting the regional quality of life tax, which has a sand component.
Aceti's wife, Betsy is running for Encinitas City Council.
