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 […]

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 […]

Anticipating the Next Wave

With 100+ degree temperatures here in Southern California again, I needed something cool to look at. This inviting picture was taken just a few weeks ago, north of Ventura, during my mini road trip. I wish I could join those birds right now, at this very moment, at 8:30pm on a Monday night! Even though […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fun

This week’s Photo Challenge from WordPress is Fun! I’m entering with two photos of Kat and me having lots of fun kayaking the Pacific Ocean, off the city of Avalon on Catalina Island, on my 63rd birthday in July. We rented a double kayak and rode the swells up and down the coast. Now, that was […]

Much Ado at Sea

This photo perplexes me nearly as much as the pond reflection from a few days ago. I took it Sunday afternoon while wandering along the beach at Corona Del Mar, after my family’s wonderful Mother’s Day festivities had concluded, using my Nikon long lens (55/300). I can’t figure how so many things can be going on in one small spot […]

Into the Surf

The sky grows dark, the brisk breeze sharp, bikini clad for summer, friends close together, to conquer the surf, on their own turf. ~SueBeePhoto taken from the Seal Beach pier this past Sunday.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

There appears to be a hole in the sky… shall I draw up my sailboat, climb deftly up the mast, take a peek, see what’s on the other side? ~SueBee (photo by SueBee) Our entry into the Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist was taken off the coast at Crystal Cove State Park in Orange County.

On the Beach After the Rain

As I mentioned yesterday, it finally rained in Southern California! It was a real, solid downpour, enough to cause mudslides in some areas. We don’t do things in a half-baked way here, you know. At any rate, I had to get outside, breathe in the clean, fresh air. I took gobs of photos that I need to finish sorting through, so I’ve decided […]

By the Tidepools

Today’s Foto Fix was taken Saturday, looking up the beach at one of my favorite spots in Corona del Mar. I first “discovered” this little gem in the mid 1970’s while living on the north side of Los Angeles, near Glendale, and working for a company that had a branch I visited nearby. It was quite […]

Into the Mist

Tire tracks scribbled upon the beach, softly fading to golden mist. Autographs penned for the seagulls, and sealed with the ocean’s kiss. Today’s Foto Fix was taken at Crystal Cove State Park in southern Orange County. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Golfing at the Pacific

While on a drive along the spectacular, gorgeous, beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula, I stopped to take some photos of the Trump Golf Resort. I remembered reading about it some time back, whatever controversy that it caused as it was being planned and then built (sorry, don’t remember details of that), and so when I spotted […]

Beach City, Wake Up!

The area near the pier is dressed in its finest as the early morning sun breaks through the mist. In the gallery below are a few more photos from my visit to Santa Monica Beach this past Sunday. The photo of Camera Obscura now has me curious, and prompts a return visit, as it was closed for refurbishing. The […]

Beach People, Wake Up!

People get their day on, one way or the other, as seen at Santa Monica Beach this past Sunday. From one end of life’s spectrum to the other, some wide awake and happily active, others avoiding morning at all costs. I saw joy, I saw sorrow. A morning at the beach in Southern California. This […]

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 […]

“Dophin Girl”

The ocean beckons us for a little break from Santa Claus, overeating, and non-stop Christmas carols on the radio. Besides, it was warm (82deg, 27c) here in Southern California today and that makes me think ‘beach’! I took this picture during the summer off the pier at Huntington Beach. Surfer girl was so determined, paddling […]

Retro Crystal Cove

What could be better than a gorgeous Southern California beach…. until you toss in a few historic beach cottages, an on-the-sand restaurant, cocktail bar, museum, and gift shop! It’s all discretely tucked away at Crystal Cove State Park, along Pacific Coast Highway (better known as PCH) south of Corona del Mar, north of Laguna Beach. I’d […]

“Paint this View… the Art Lesson”

As I wandered along the clifftop pathway, above one of my favorite Pacific Ocean hideaways, I grew fascinated, watching these art students gathered around their teacher. I’d personally taken up the brush just over a year ago, having my first go at painting, using acrylics and an inexpensive, small canvas I’d bought at a local […]

“Pacific Ocean Gold”

California, nicknamed The Golden State, could have been named for this golden sun, soon to be sliding gracefully into the Pacific Ocean. Today’s “Foto Fix” was taken off the coast of Corona Del Mar, from one of my favorite clifftop outlooks, and just down the street from my favorite tavern. By the way, that’s Catalina […]

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
