Some days a woman and her boogie board need time alone.
It’s been very HOT here in SoCal – humid to boot. Time to play with photoshop elements and stay cool. Yesterday we went to the Carlsbad lagoon, a few minutes from home. One of the shots I took screamed at me – get me out of this lagoon and put me n the Amazon. So, I did. The other is more fantasy.
Have lots to go through and will add the mob scene which was yesterday on the water.
This has been a cool summer for us at the coast, seventy degrees at 2 P.M. today. I think I’ve seen the sun out once this summer in the early morning - but compared to the St. Louis area where my niece lives , no contest.
Photos from a few summer’s ago. I was walking on the boardwalk below the street when I saw this lone surfer above checking out the wave action. I think he saw me take his picture, but didn’t seem to mind.
You may have seen the shots toward the end of this video I uploaded to Youtube yesterday – but I wanted you to see the Quicktime clips I put at the beginning – the water – and the end – the film strip animation. Wait for the film animation to stop, and the logo to catch fire. I just purchased 250, short animated clips to add to iMovie or any other video software, Mac or PC. Great bargain.
Went to the Carlsbad Lagoon a few days ago – a place where dogs play and people paddle board – and enjoy this small strip of beach. High resolution if you want to watch it in full screen.
I tried to post this yesterday but Youtube was having error issues.
The other day we took our dog as we walked through a campground located on a bluff. This is a State Beach and very popular, reservations six months in advance. January, even though it can be sunny and warm some days, the campground was someone deserted.
We were standing on a stairway which led to the beach below – best guess is 60 to 70 feet below. I didn’t have my telescoping lens, so this is as close as I could get.
A perfect day for dipping your toes in the Pacific. A couple of women sat with shoes off, hoping to do just that. The winter tide had gone out and left a painful walk on a sea of rocks. Maybe next time.
