Beach, Wake Up!

There’s a different vibe at the beach in the early morning. The wide variety of life attached to it rises and begins its daily routine. This past Sunday morning, I journeyed to Santa Monica Beach, and Palisades Park, top of the sandy cliffs above Pacific Coast Highway. After parking at a meter, I joined countless joggers, bicyclists, homeless, tourists, and dog-walkers. Quite an experience, I must say. This first of a three-part series is of the beach waking up.

This looks like a dead body, but I’m guessing cheap wine (at least that’s what the seagulls inferred):

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
