View of the shore of Isthmus Cove on Santa Catalina Island on the day of the Wrigley Ocean Marathon. Placards with the numbers assigned to the swimmers, on sticks stuck in the sand, line the shore along with a few small boats. A few marathon workers are among the placards and boats and a few spectators stand on the higher ground behind them with a small building in the distance. The absence of the swimmers indicates that the time is either somewhat before or after the 11:00 am start of the marathon.
