ahh the beach...

just for a moment,
take a mini holiday,
and pretend you are here...
let the sunlight warm your weary soul...
(not that mine is weary, but it does cause one to pause when one goes on a vacation and it is warmer in Seattle than where one is and the temperature in Seattle plans to return to luke warm the day one returns home...)
do you hear the surf?
can you smell the salty air?
want to go through here?
and meet this guy who watches over the cove?
and dig your toes in the squeaky sand
and study the seagulls and their feet prints?
and are you thirsty?
do you like dates (the kind to eat)?
then you must stop here...
to get these...
to drink here...
while viewing this...
was it only a dream?
( in case you wanted to know where you were - 
Laguna Beach and Crystal Cove for date shakes in southern California)

thanks to you all for your kind comments about the interview with Malia.
I will write to you when I return from visiting my parents.
Oh yes, next I will share two great stores I discovered here-
I am coveting again...


  1. Thanks for taking me back to one of my favorite beaches. Laguna Beach so transfixed me that I was thinking of making the career change to beach bum while sitting in its sands. BTW, the seagull photo is brilliant.

  2. Love what you did to the last picture....

    What a lovely trip..never been to Laguna Beach
    It was a wonderful escape....brief but good.....

  3. I had fun putting the seagull shot (which was too blurry) over the one of my feet. People here thought I was nuts - so glad I have you kindred souls!

  4. Very cool shots -- we've been "socked in" here in the San Francisco Bay Area for weeks and weeks.

  5. It's so beautiful I wish I was right there with you Pam! Have a wonderful trip!
