How one election changed Disneyland’s relationship with its hometown

Solana Beach

Surfers carry their boards at Fletcher Cove beach. At the level of the beach, most of the Solana Beach bluff is sandstone. Higher up, the bluff has a layer of sand that is susceptible to erosion. Without the sea walls, that sand would tumble onto the beach, providing a kind of natural barrier to the waves and increasing the width of the beach. But property owners say that without the walls, their homes would be imperiled.
