A return visit is due

2010 01 16 044


I guess I am due to visit the beach on a early morning again soon.  It just always seems to be raining on my days off.

Gossip session

I think that the title says it all.  But I am wondering what they are talking about?

Take a second look




Take a second look.  At first glance it is nothing more than a seagull flying over the ocean.

But when you look closer, you can see the writing in the top left hand side, from the texture.  Maybe sometimes, there is more to life, than just what we see at first glance.

The sky broke

The sky broke like an egg, into full sunset and the water caught fire.

Wish you were here……

I did post this pic on my other blog, but still, doesn’t it make you think Hawaii?

All by myself?


Is one the loneliest number?  Do you think that they get lonely?

Crescent Beach Fog



Same Pacific Ocean, but this time a different beach.  

A rare foggy day, and everyone thought they would go down to the beach to escape the fog. I Loved that day.

Mindful visits


2009 12 24 036

I must remember that we won’t always get to live here. 

And hold each visit deep in my memory, to be shaken out, like a tablecloth, and spread as far as the ocean.

Are you trying to tell us something?

The sea pronounces something over and over, in

a hoarse whisper, I cannot quite make it out.

Silhouettes and Sunrises

2010 01 16 051

I ran down to the beach yesterday morning, [actually I drove, Gar definitely is the runner not me] and didn’t think that I would see anyone else there in the heavy marine fog. 

It was packed, note to self, next time brush hair.

A Rosy Glow

Those morning sunrises give the boats a real rosy glow.

A favorite time of the morning

Mornings have to be the absolute best times at the beach.

Morning Reflections on the surf

2009 12 03 029

The early morning reflections of the Christmas lights on the water, do kind of look like a really beautiful sunset.

No Parking

They are obviously not aware of the stringent parking rules around here.

The edge of the beach is lined with beautiful Robinia trees, since they tolerate the salt spray well.  There sometimes is a artfully etched birds nest hiding in them.  Those are my favorite.

Seventies feeling

I was playing around with the color tones in Picassa, and got this interesting 70's feeling to my shot.

A beautiful morning

This is the shot that made it onto the local television news hour. 

The famous White Rock, that this little seaside city is named after.
