Kayaking off Catalina Island

The weather couldn’t have been better for a bit of kayaking off Avalon on Catalina Island. I rented my kayak from the Descanso Beach Club. I prefer renting there as I can paddle off from the beach (albeit a very rocky beach) rather than from a dock in the harbor where it’s difficult to get […]

5th Annual Visit to Catalina Island

To help celebrate my 65th birthday, I made my 5th annual visit to beautiful Catalina Island, off Southern California’s coast. What a perfect day it was! The below  pictures were taken from the pathway leading to Descanso Beach where I rented a kayak to journey up the coast. There’s a cruise ship off shore, and […]

Sights from Crystal Cove, part 1

A gathering of photos I took while at Crystal Cove State Park here in Orange County, California, after work last week. As you can see, it was the perfect late afternoon for the beach. With high 90’s and triple digit temps coming our way this Friday, photos of ocean waves are the perfect remedy. ~SueBee

Tunnel to Crystal Cove

My visit to the beach this past Wednesday after work started with a parking lot on the other side of a very busy, wide highway. From the parking lot, one can choose to wait on the shuttle bus for a ride to the beach, or wander down the hill and through a very entertaining tunnel. […]

Coming in for a Landing, Reflection

This picture was taken yesterday after work at Crystal Cove State Park, just south of Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar. I was shooting the colorful umbrella reflections when the seagull swooped in and added action to the picture! ~SueBee

Wonders of the Tidepool

I took my camera to work today and headed for the beach as soon as I was off.  I’ve missed my out ‘n about adventures and figured I’d kick myself back into gear. What a grand idea it was! I drove down the coast just a bit below Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar to […]

Newport Beach at Sunset

End of the weekend, I drove down to Newport Beach Peninsula yesterday evening for a quick stroll on the beach. Luckily people had started leaving and I found a parking spot. It had been a prime Southern California almost-summer day and crowds were out in force. I watched the sun slowly set and some really […]

Kayaking off Catalina Island

My son shared a news story a few days ago with this headline: “Pacific coast shark attacks on the rise and kayakers may be most at risk“.  He suggested I take up another hobby. While it’s easy to be fearful, I’ve thought it through and decided no, I’m not going to let the sharks win, […]

2017 Washed Away

(4 photos) 2017 is behind us, inscribed in the history books. For me and my family, it was a fabulous, very busy year, with two weddings, one in May and the other just a few weeks ago. Health and happiness were generally in good order throughout the year. One sad note, though, was the passing […]

Christmas Day, 2017

Following three days of family, friends, and much feasting, I took an afternoon drive along Southern California’s beautiful coastline yesterday. I’ve been caring for my grandpup, Kansas, so I took him along. It’s not easy taking pictures with a rambunctious pup but I managed one of him in Newport’s Back Bay. We continued down the […]

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
