A visit to the beach -- en español (which makes it "la playa")

Coming soon to a beach near you -- bilingual signs warning visitors of rip currents and steep terrain. Organizers hope the 1,900 signs in English and Spanish will help cut down on drownings, one of the leading causes of death in California's state parks. Money for the signs came from the California State Coastal Conservancy and California Sea Grant.
