If you drive down Balboa Avenue, passed the Newport Pier, passed the Balboa Pier, and passed the Balboa Island Ferry launch, to its end of the Balboa Peninsula in Orange County you end up at a dead end in a residential area a few streets wide; the "q-tip" like east end of the Balboa Peninsula.

On the park pavement was this survey disk. I have never seen one of these in the middle of a sidewalk, where it can easily be tripped over.

***Where the park pavement ends, Balboa Beach begins, as does the breakwater (jetty, I guess).
Broken-rock jetties define the 800-1000 ft wide and 10-30 ft deep Entrance Channel.
