The waves had been smashing the cliff the night before. That beach in particular is always wet sand, with the tides reaching the cliff regularly.

Here's a link to video from 11-2015. https://vimeo.com/147415830

RIP. That just sucks.
My friend and I were kicking back at the base of the cliff at Perko's when the Coalinga quake hit, all kinds of dirt and rocks was falling around us, we were like, WTF?
We found out what happened later after we got back to Gaviota.
Remember that MASSIVE slide at Blacks?

That huge slide at Blacks back in the early 90's (I think? Or was it late 80's?) change the beach there for months, if not a year or so.

High tide was kind of a hassle walking over all the rocks and debri and large boulders.

This one is particularly saddening, as it took a large chunk of a family with it.

I remember sitting in the water at Blacks and seeing a giant chunk of cliff come down. No one was under it, but still pretty eye opening. Saw the same thing while in the water at Rincon. The coast is constantly changing and sea level rise will make this happen more often.

RIP.

I heard it was hectic at the scene. Major respect to the first responder teams.

I was shocked to learn that the two sisters, Julie and Elizabeth (Betsy), were my neighbors in Crown Point. They used to babysit me when I was a kid (pre-teen). Their Dad owned Charles' Seat Covers on Lamont St. in PB back in the day. I moved to north PB in '76 so hadn't been in touch for a long time. I still drive down the street once in awhile. So sad. A lot of their kids and grandkids were with them at the beach when it happened.

As the subject line suggests, it was Grand View (North of Moonlight).
