Nothing but waves of people gathering at the shore to watch the waves of the ocean. The shoreline accesses were all closed, leaving people to park and stand on the shoulder of the road. Then there were drivers watching the water and not the road:
The National Weather Service issued a tsunami advisory covering the Monterey County coast Saturday, but big waves failed to materialize and no major damage or injuries were reported.
Monterey Harbor officials noticed water rise 8 inches about 12:45 p.m., but said there were no problems in the harbor. The Coast Guard reported no incidents.
The National Weather Service canceled the advisory at 8:21 p.m.
Pacific Grove police officers closed parking lots along Ocean View Boulevard. The popular Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, with its dramatic rocky shoreline, was closed to visitors.

Four of five vacant storefronts on Lighthouse are filled – lessee, we have another art gallery, another nail shop and another one of those stores full of stuff no one wants but would buy as a gift to someone. The first ex-Business Center is still vacant but shows signs of something happening. Hallmark has been vacant for like 3 years.
Moe Ammar, president of the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce, is seeing signs that the downtown economy is turning around.
Since the first of the year, five of the six vacancies on Lighthouse Avenue have been filled, leaving only the old Hallmark location empty.
Four of the five spots were filled by merchants who already have businesses in Pacific Grove, Ammar said.The chamber hired retired banker Michael Adamson last fall as business development coordinator, and he was responsible for filling three of the spots.

But the truth about the unusual crime was neither “out there” nor inside the troubled mind of a deluded spaceship owner.
Cmdr. Mike Richards said he discovered the prank after a reporter requested more information about the spaceship burglary.
The Truth Is Way Out There
