Port Hueneme | Women Should Still Not Walk Alone on Ormond Beach

By Christina Zubko – Hueneme Voice

As a follow up to my earlier post this summer, “Women Should Not Walk Alone”, today, 9/22/19, I caution women against feeling too secure about walking the beach alone—in spite of how tempting it is, now that the beach has been cleaned up (the PHPD and the OPD have made progress removing the encampments in the wetlands and yesterday the Coastal Clean up sure helped remove dangerous needles, crack pipes, and other bio-hazardous material). Here are some pictures I took today—certainly, I’m pleased to see so many beach goers enjoying our Hueneme Beach.  It seems as if there are more people enjoying the east side of the pier, and there were lots of surfers on this side of the pier as well. The lagoon and sand dunes look so clean and tranquil today.

I see the environment struggling to heal after yesterday’s massive Coastal Clean up. But just as I was soaking in the beauty, and just as I passed the sign, “Leaving PH Beach,” I saw a bike, laying in the sand, along the lagoon.  As I approached (with my husband), we noticed feet sticking out from under a bush… we also saw remnants of charred firewood. I called PHPD because even though this alleged homeless person was on the Oxnard side of Ormond Beach, Chief Salinas made it clear that our PHPD have Oxnards blessing to address vagrants on Oxnard’s beach. I look forward to the day that I can say with complete confidence that women can walk Ormond Beach alone. 

We’re just not there yet… but we’re getting closer…
