Another thing about the beach- there are surfers! There is a lot of patience involved in surfing , I’ve discovered on my beach walks; there is more waiting than actual surfing. But then the right wave comes, it’s magic!
Good Morning, Sunshine!
What a joy it was to be back walking on the beach with my new knee! It still doesn’t feel “normal”- but I can walk without pain and without poles. And watching the waves and the birds is the best therapy!
At Newport Beach
I never get tired of photographing an uncluttered beach. This was taken at Crystal Cove, which was soon to be packed with people.
As we headed out to dinner one night, I caught a glimpse of this trio watching the surfer below.
Just another day in Laguna. . .
I think it’s the vastness of the Pacific that first absorbs us when we catch our first glimpse of it. And then it’s being mesmerized by the waves- but I think everyone is pulled back to the horizon eventually, contemplating the sheer size of this body of water.
We made a quick trip to Southern California to see our son and family for Father’s Day. The family was at work and daycare when we arrived, so we spent a couple hours at Crystal Cove, north of Laguna. No, that is not my husband in the photo- and I don’t think those children were with that gentleman.
We took a very quick drive over to Bodega Bay while in California and stopped at Doran Beach, where the beach grass caught my eye.
As seen at Huntington Beach
No, we aren’t at the beach, but we’ve been very busy with family here- and I haven’t even taken any photos! Over the next few days, I plan to post some previously unseen (!) photos from November.
Maybe I’ve spent too much time watching the waves- am I the only one seeing a face out there?
We walked down to the water’s edge in the morning, and I was captivated by the little footprints disappearing into the surf.
The sun was setting, and most of the few people watching the waves, the surfers, and the sunset were leaving the beach. Now it was the life guard stations all in a row that caught my eye.
