The Line Between Land and Ocean

"The dry land is one world and the wet sea is another, but the line separating them is never the same from one moment to the next. The boundaries change with every spent wave; with every rise and fall of the tide, the ocean surrenders or repossesses some of its realm. And the very sands of the beach move with the seasons, so that in some summers we may walk the beach with our feet higher than our heads would have been a few months earlier." (Excerpt from the book, SEASHORE LIFE OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, by Sam Hinton, University of California Press, 1987, pg. ix)
