Sea breeze

San Diego


We pulled into town drowsy after driving all night

the crisp salty air and stretching our legs at Imperial Beach

sand in our toes

and wet booties woke us right up

surrounded by beauty

sand dollars worth more than a dollar



hugging the wave licked cliffs, Cabrillo National Monument

watching the tide come in

looking and searching

for friends (brown pelicans)

and those who want to be left alone

keeping a close eye on my babes

playing it safe

unless you have a hand to hold

a tribute to Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo

The old Point Loma lighthouse


Last beach of the day, Ocean Beach


O and I stayed in the warm toasty sand

These two could not escape the call of the sea





and believe it or not - we all got burnt

I finally got down to business and modeled some clothes for my forthcoming Etsy shop.

the wind really wanted to help

but may have done the opposite


This is one place you can't just drive by

But bask in its glorious realm

And thank heaven

that families are forever


ending the day and letting loose our sand-trapped bodies in the spa
