Skeleton699 viewsLarge birds had access to the RF Rooms via the Feed Tubes for quite some time. The rooms were littered with their droppings, as well as the carcasses and skeletons of their prey.

After the RF Room was cleaned, the Feed Tube was sealed to keep the birds out.

Manhattan Beach Pier666 viewsTaken 12/20/05
Several storms out in the Pacific were beginning to affect Northern California with heavy rain. These same storms were causing heavy surf all along the coast. A large west-northwest swell continued to affect the outer coastal waters of Southern California today. Breakers of 8 to 12 feet, with locally higher sets, pounded the coastline. Here you see the waves crashing against the end of the Manhattan Beach Pier
