Bad weather I presume? Hope the sand is back by summer.

Super contrast of the old and new. I LOVE the stairways down to the water.

Mad and extremely beautiful!

hee hee... Not a day for a picnic on the beach!

Regarding the brown foliage around the bridge «Louis» posted on Sunday - it is indicative of how badly California needs rain, not to mention the evidence of it as seen in how dry that river is!

I could almost hear the waves crashing! What a wonderful sound.

No chance of riding along that beach one of those gorgeous horses you showed us the other day. Amazing shot.

I love the sea when it's wild just as much as when gentle waves lap the shore...

Four days and counting. Then the days start getting longer. It cannot happen fast enough for me.
