For this weekend's AcroYoga practice, Tori and I went to the tiny scenic overlook park that sits above the Carlsbad State Beach. Before the pandemic, there would be the occasional AcroJam at this grassy location.
After dinner in Carlsbad Village, we walked along the Sea Wall Trail to the rock jetties at the entrance to the Agua Hedionda Lagoon. The lagoon is in the middle of being dredged and huge rubber pipes were pumping a flowing slurry of sand onto Carlsbad State Beach. The water desalination plant is now in charge of removing the buildup of silt in the lagoon, taking over from the decommissioned Encina Power Plant. We walked out to the end of the short jetty where we could see a crane at the top of the 400 foot smokestack slowly dismantling it. It already looks a little shorter.
Below are videos of the ocean flowing against the jetty of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon. The second is a time-lapse video.
