Seagulls, Surf & Squirrels



Despite the summer crowds of tourists and locals alike, there were still a few solitary waves to be had earlier this week. The surf was small, but the wind held off and the tide was just right. The water temperature is an unseasonably cool 61 degrees, barely above our winter temperatures. That's my daughter, above, riding her shortboard and throwing some spray on a shoulder high sparkling afternoon breaker.



This gull was unperturbed by passers-by and kept his eye on the water, his feathers lightly ruffling in the breeze.



The squirrels who live in the cliff above the sand forage for snacks in the greenery.



A quick rinse before heading for home.
