A Last Look At Our Malibu Trip

Speeding along the freeway on our way up the coast to Malibu, the local range had dried out and only a few wildflowers remained. Another month or so, this area will be totally gold and brown until we get rain again in the autumn.

Camp Pendleton is a buffer between Orange and San Diego Counties. If it weren't for the Marine base, development would be solid all the way down the coast. It's not uncommon to see tanks and helicopters kicking up dust along this stretch of road.

The fish were biting that day! There were a handful of folks casting their lines and pulling in fish. The skies were clear but the wind was nippy.

The youngster was so excited to be there. It looked like his dad had come straight from work to fish with him, as he was the only fisherman in silk pants. The water really was that blue. These pictures have been cropped but not color enhanced.

When the Malibu pier closes, two huge wooden doors swing shut across the entrance. This is a picture of one of the door's hardware. When the doors are together, the cast iron hardware forms a giant starburst.
