Sam looked out over the shoreline assessing the wave sets as they came in one after the other on Memorial Day. There were no stairs or parking meters like you see today. Sam had climbed down a "cliff" to arrive at this beachhead. The visibility was about 10 miles across the ocean. Catalina island was barely visible in the distance as he looked over Diver's Cove.
