18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Dispute Part II

Malibu Lagoon State Beach is a lovely place to walk around an estuary and stroll along the beach. Take a walking path to overlooks around shorebird-filled wetlands and connect to Surfrider Beach, a world famous point break where Malibu Creek meets the Pacific Ocean. Sinking your toes in the sand, you can get splashed by fast moving birds and hundreds seagulls moving all at once. These two characters are disputing branch rights.
