I have seen on the news the damage done in San Alejo, San Jacinto and San Clemente from the high tides this past few weeks. We did have some damage on the property next door to where we are staying in Manta. The property facing the ocean was lined with beautiful large palm trees.First two fell over, then the next high tide 5 more. It was sad to see such beautiful trees tossed into a truck and hauled away. Mother Nature, what can I say.
