Gray May Day

It’s been a traditional gray month of May. It’s weather we should be very grateful for considering how blasting hot it will be soon. I personally love this cooler weather. An advantage to the gray days, no doubt, is reduced crowds along the beach. I’ll take that any day. The pictures are from Corona Del […]

Surf’s Up at Aliso Beach

As I neared the end of accessible walking area at Aliso Beach, I noticed a group of young surfers enjoying the waves, so I caught a few pictures with my iPhone. ~SueBee

Views at Laguna Beach Tidepools

It was a beautiful day at Laguna Beach, and deserved a good wander along the tidepools… while being careful not to catch a wave! I was certainly envious of the kayakers going by. I haven’t been able to kayak at all this year due to the Covid situation; rental facilities have been closed. ~SueBee

Beautiful Laguna Beach

Not wanting to endure another day of temperatures in the upper 90s, I hopped in my car and headed to the beach… Laguna Beach, that is. I was thrilled to nab a parking spot, grabbed my camera, fed the parking meter, and headed off down the path. What a perfect day, and with temps a […]

Views at Santa Barbara

Today is a special day… it’s my first time sharing a guest picture! A fellow blogger who posts from Scotland (Tootlepedal) does so and I thought I’d follow suit. I’m therefore sharing a gorgeous picture of a night-blooming Epiphyllum (Cereus) taken by my brother, Glenn, in his backyard. He told me he held a flashlight […]

Views From The Peninsula

It was a beautiful day for a drive along Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California! I’ll let the photos do the talking. ~SueBee

Tree With A View

I took to the freeways yesterday to reach Palos Verdes Peninsula, somewhat south of Los Angeles International Airport, and, without traffic, about 45 minutes from my home in Orange. Once reaching the area, I drove a route leading through an area of very expensive, luxurious homes perched along the cliffs, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and […]

Beach Time

I took an early morning walk, pre 8am, on the local beach this past Saturday, before the crowds hit. Now that our beaches have re-opened, again, this time with more safety measures in place, I wanted to take a look. Had there been crowds, I would have turned around and gone home. As it was, […]

Stay Safe

While today’s world feels like the first picture, with a large wave of doom ready to crash down, I look forward to the day our reality is the second one, with all of us still standing, and safe. I took these pictures seven or eight years ago at Newport Beach, California, with the little CoolPix […]

Corona Del Mar, Before Stay-at-home Order

It’s been two weeks since I took these pictures, wandering along at a favorite beach spot. I’m glad I got there when I did because virtual trips are all I’ll be taking for awhile. It’s more important to stay safe and healthy at home while Covid19 works it way around the world in horrifying fashion. […]

Washing Out 2019

I made my fourth annual trek to Newport Beach yesterday morning to write the year in the sand and let it wash out with the waves. I’ll tell you, the task isn’t as easy as one might think. Writing numbers big enough to show up in a picture, close enough to the water’s edge that […]

Foggy San Simeon

This is a collection of mood shots I took at San Simeon, up California’s central coast, during my November vacation. My favorite time at the beach is when it’s draped in heavy fog, setting a mellow, reflective tone. Seeing a sailboat anchored silently offshore adds to the atmosphere for me, and my mind wanders to […]

A Few Days In Cambria, 2

Continuing from my previous post about my recent vacation in the beautiful village of Cambria, along California’s central coast, this gallery showcases Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. It’s a gorgeous area that was saved from development by the residents. It’s truly a magnificent place for a nice long walk along the coast, or up the hill. When […]

A Few Days In Cambria, 1

There’s nothing like a spontaneous little vacation, especially when it’s spent along the Central California Coast in the off-season. I left home early this past Sunday morning and drove to Cambria, a favorite spot roughly 260 miles north. The drive was traffic-free, which by itself was reason to smile. Additionally, the weather was perfect: a […]

San Clemente Beach and Pier

I spent the better part of a recent day wandering along the beach and pier at San Clemente, an adorable seaside town about an hour’s drive south of my home in Orange. The morning started overcast, my favorite, and cleared up (became hot) just before noon. Wandering on the beach soon had me with a […]

Visiting Two Harbors

I’m a bit behind on my posting, but wanted to share more pictures from my recent visit to Catalina Island. I stayed overnight, and in the morning took a large speedboat called the Cyclone from the port of Avalon to the other end of the island, Two Harbors. It was my first time doing so, […]

5th Annual Trip to Catalina

I recently enjoyed my fifth annual boat trip to the city of Avalon on Catalina Island, 26 miles off Southern California’s coast. While there are certain activities I always love doing, I set my mind to do new things this time around. I managed that quite nicely and still have many more new experiences for […]

Beach Time at San Clemente

About an hour’s drive down Southern California’s coast from me lies the beautiful seaside town of San Clemente. It’s probably most famous for being home to President Richard Nixon’s Western White House. The mansion is currently on the market for a mere $57.5 million dollars, in case you have a bit of pocket change needing […]

Cool Off Along Southern California’s Coast

With the sizzling days of summer now upon us, I thought a gallery of various shots I took off Southern California’s coast might cool you down. Enjoy! ~SueBee
