Waimea Bay cam

See what you’re missing
on distant shores

If you are looking for . . . a beach break but just can't get out of the office, here's the directions for a fast trip to Waimea Bay.

Head out to, which is the home of a serious "long-term study of nearshore processes, including how beaches and sandbars move around," according to the research authors.

To do that, they have cameras trained on the beaches in Oregon, Florida, Australia and Holland -- with the Waimea cam the most interesting.

There is even an archives set, so you can check back to see how great the surf was on other days you were stuck at home or in the office.

"Home on the Web" is a weekly Friday feature of the Star-Bulletin.
