Yesterday On The Beach



Brown pelicans are a familiar sight around here, either flying in formation, diving straight down into the ocean for a meal, or bobbing on the water's surface just past the surf line.



There was a south wind blowing yesterday that raised white caps and made the waves choppy, but the tide was low, the sun was out and the air was warm - perfect conditions for an afternoon barefoot walk along the Pacific shore.



Or a bike ride on the sand.



The reefs are home to numerous little creatures who have created a world all their own.



My walk wrapped up just as my daughter was getting out of the surf. The air may be warm, but the ocean temperature has dropped enough for full length wetsuits until summer rolls around again.
