Small fish swim and twist onto shore to mate and lay eggs and then go back into the see.
The effect is peculiar to Southern California and happens only March through July. The no-catch, no-touch season last through…

I didn’t hear the phone ring Sunday morning, but I slowly started to let go of my dreams as I heard fragments of a conversation that ended in “…we’ll be right there.
