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

First Go at Mixed Media Art on Canvas

I decided to have a go at mixed media on canvas yesterday and arrived at this result. The start was my photo of the row boat printed onto flat finish paper, the rest was willy nilly… I had no plan, just layered as I went and arrived at this scene. Materials used: photo, dupioni silk, […]

Meandering Along the Coast

One of the great perks of being retired I’ve discovered, is spontaneously tossing a few things in the car and heading down the coast… without calling out “sick”. I waited for morning rush hour traffic to fade and actually enjoyed my drive on the freeway. I exited at San Clemente and walked along the water’s […]

Stranded?

This view was taken from top of the cliffs at Corona Del Mar and seems to show someone stranded on top of the craggy rock in the distance. I wished I’d brought my zoom lens to confirm, but from the looks of it, the person might have gotten quite wet when returning to shore. The […]

On the Peninsula

Recently, taking advantage of a wonderful break from the storms we’ve had, I drove to Balboa Island and rode the ferry to the Balboa Peninsula. I wandered a few blocks and reached the sand. A really large berm had been built up by whichever government department is in charge of such things. I’m sure the […]

View from the Balboa Island Ferry

While taking a brief visit to the coast yesterday, I decided on riding the little car ferry from Balboa Island over to the peninsula. The ferry fits 3 cars. I chose to park mine in a nearby neighborhood, though so I could walk onto the ferry. I figured it’s good exercise, just $1 each way, […]

Daisies Framing the Pacific

These cheerful flowers are on a very steep hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Corona Del Mar. We’ve had so many storms lately that I chose the few hours without rain to get out and walk near the beach. Many others had the same idea! ~SueBee

2018 Washed Out to Sea

I took my annual “washed out to sea” picture on the beach at El Segundo while waiting for my son and son-in-law’s flight to arrive at LAX.  The timing at the beach was perfect. The sun was setting and at the golden hour, the waves allowed me a very quick scratch in the sand, and […]

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 2

On what’s going to be another Extreme Heat day here in Southern California, a few more beach pictures seem in order. These were taken at Crystal Cove, south of Newport Beach. It’s such a wonderful spot! For further information on the  historic district there, check out this link. Per the website: “The Crystal Cove Historic […]

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 […]

On This Date Three Years Ago

I spent a bit of time this evening digging through old photos and decided to post this one taken on May 10, 2015. It’s apparent I was enjoying a warm day at the beach. ~SueBee

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
