Live Cams


** Me and the Taxi-dog are looking for a new place to live **


This is an outdoor view of the Newport Pier located on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, CA. This camera is hosted by my buddy Matty and is located on the roof of my old apartment on 17th street. The camera faces west-southwest but it has been known to move a bit with a good wind. Depending on the wind and the zoom, the boardwalk may be visible in the lower right corner of the picture. In the middle of the picture is the 19th st. lifeguard tower and the surfbreak behind it called 'Secrets' (it isn't much of a secret). The break to the left of the picture is called 'The Point' (it isn't much of a point). At sundown, the summer sun sets to the right of the picture over Mutt Lynch's and in the winter the sun sets to the left of frame over Catalina. In the months between, sunset moves horizontally across the length of the pier signaling the change of season.

This is another view of the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, CA. This camera is also hosted by my buddy Matty and is also located on the roof of my old apartment. The camera faces south towards the 15th street lifeguard tower, to the left is the surfbreak called "SchoolYards". This camera, which is the original WalkCam and has been around for 7 years, has an internal spotting problem that is a result of years of salt spray from the ocean (pls don't email me, nothing I can do about it!) Enjoy the view, this one catches sunrises (and riptides) pretty well.

If you are looking for the cam, the major street is West Balboa and the cross street is 11th. Look up and wave, everyone does. The camera is hosted by the HappyRox and mounted on top of the world's largest partying houseboat. The houseboat is docked next to another one of my old residences, this one was an old beach shack on 11th street. The shack was bulldozed to make room for my friend Jay's new home. Some nights while visiting the OC I get drunk, sneak into the yard and look for stuff I buried when I lived there. This is a bit awkward since it is now !A livingroom.

This picture is taken by a camera located on the roof of my current apartment in Santa Cruz. The view is a bit lacking but this camera does include !A mini-weather station that displays current temprature, humidity and barametric pressure. The camera faces the west which is good for sunsets but the bamboo plant in the foreground is slowly blocking my view of the wind-indicating palm tree making the view more mundane every day. Unfortunately, being close to the beach is not enough for a good picture.

This view is from another camera located on my porch here at Tiny House in Santa Cruz. This camera shows a ground level view of 'Buddha's Garden' which isn't actually growing any Buddha but is watched over by one. Nothing to see at night (unless I'm having a fire in the front yard) but the view during the day can include all types of flora and fauna. In the winter this camera will be very close to underwater at times. The water level in the garden is about 8" after a good storm and the camera is about 12" off the ground. Scuba-Buddha, fun stuff.

Welcome to the Live Camera Page! This webpage is the electronic descendant of the somewhat famous \\/\\/alkCam Page that graced this space for a number of years. The current incarnation of the webpage uses StarDot's Webcams to allow virtual tourists to check the fog or the crowds in Newport Beach (my former home) or Santa Cruz (my current home). If you want to explore more, please check the F.A.Q. for information about the site, its author and the history of the other cameras that were part of the original WalkCam Page. If you would like to make your visit more permanent, please take a minute to sign the crappy Guestbook that I don't even know how to administer or drop me an email. In any case, thanks for visiting and enjoy the views.
