Military device found on Cardiff beach Posted: Apr 21, 2013 7:32 PM PDT Updated: Apr 21, 2013 7:32 PM PDT CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA (CNS) - A beachgoer walking along the Cardiff State Beach shoreline today came upon an explosive device and took it to lifeguards, but they called in the bomb squad, who rendered it safe, a sheriff's sergeant said. The citizen discovered the device on the beach off the 2700 block of South Coast Highway about 1:10 p.m., collected it and brought it to a lifeguard tower where it was placed on the sand, according to sheriff's Sgt. Roberto Lopez. Lifeguards immediately called the sheriff's department and deputies evacuated the area, Lopez said. They then brought in the bomb squad. "The Sheriff's Bomb Arson Unit responded to the scene and after rendering the explosive device safe, collected it to be disposed of in a prudent manor," Lopez said in a statement. No one was injured, Lopez said. The device was deemed an unidentified military ordnance, according to Lopez. The area remained closed for about two hours, the sergeant said.

Probably a water soaked arty simulator, but I bet they called in the keystone kops to detonate it with a robot.
Went to the Marine’s Birthday Ball in San Diego and stayed with Marine friends who lived in Cardiff by the Sea almost 40 years ago. Was my first visit to that area of California. Very beautiful and thoroughly enjoyed my evening with the Marines.
