A Few Moments at the Beach

It’s the day after. Five days of rain, hail, wind, tornado warnings and flooding. It’s a beautiful day today. Skies are blue with white cotton clouds. The air is crisp and the ocean is beautiful. I could spend all day watching the big surf, smelling the salt air.

Morning Surf before another storm

The ocean is more calm in these photos than it will be in about two hours when San Diego will get bashed by another storm. Clouds are coming in now and the wind is calm, for the moment. The surf in these photos is between 8-10ft and tomorrow “they” say it will get to over 20feet. I love watching the brown pelicans glide along the face of the waves. They look like they are having so much fun just being pelicans.

My Path in the Woods

Here is a photo of the path that takes me to quiet places and beautiful scenery. Many migrating birds are seen, following this path. I have been lost only in my thoughts, following this path. Running along this path have been mountain lions, rabbits, squirrels, and me. I have reached the top with this path and it has lead me gently back down. There are majestic views of a giant oak from this path. This is not the only path here, but it is the one that starts my journey and leads me back from many choices along the way. I love this path and look forward to it’s beauty with every change in season.

Brown Pelican

The Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) is the smallest of the eight species of pelican, although it is a large bird in nearly every other regard. It is 106–137 cm (42–54 in) in length, weighs from 2.75 to 5.5 kg (6-12 lb) and has a wingspan from 1.83 to 2.5 m (6 to 8.2 ft).
