Sunset Beach California

We spent several hours at the beach near our home on Saturday. It was a hazy, lazy day and not as hot as we expected it would be. I didn't even bother with opening the umbrella up. Normally, I hide under the shade of the umbrella but not this day.

Here's Mike with our usual set up...beach chairs, umbrella, binoculars to see dolphins and watch the surfers and my bag of books and sunscreen. We love the quiet peace and the sound of the ocean waves. There were hardly any people on the beach.

There were a few birds...

and a man that was fishing.

It takes solitude under the stars, for us to be reminded of our eternal origin and our far destiny.
