Imperial Beach 9/7/2020
Starting from the Imperial Beach Estuary.
Sun is getting up with orange glow from East County fires.
There is a heat wave in San Diego but here it is COLD!
Cold and windy.
Border patrol is waiting for us?
Made it over the Tijuana River. It was waist deep.
Almost at the border. With bullring visible.
Angelika and Rob want to touch the fence.
Than Border Patrol honking runs down to talk to them. Are they going to be arrested and deported?
In the process BP gets stuck in the sand and needs some pushing help.
It is a cache of swim fins that have been used by illegal swimmers.
Snowy Plovers, are they nesting?
Back at the Tijuana River. This time it is different, the tide is coming in!
Angelika is sinking!
Steve is ready to swim.
There is no high ground in Imperial Beach.
Strong cool winds, whole day.
Even alligators are here.
Today is Labor Day!
That looks like mishmash pipes.
Few steps to the side and it is a piece of ART.
We are back, still windy and cold. Rob is taking an alternate route back.
