Laguna Beach: Beautiful Water

so should have went down there and drew a heart in the sand. oh well.

We were intending to go to Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach because it has it this old castle tower that is quite beautiful, and not very Californiaish.  I guess it does suit a name like Victoria Beach though.  We drove 2 miles further by mistake, and landed up in the regular Laguna Beach, which happened to make for a pleasant time anyway.  The sky was also very grey, but there was just a thin line of a golden hue from the sunset, which was quite amazing.  What really had me in awe was the color of the water, I never knew that Southern California had beaches with such a pure and clear blue-green color.  I always thought I’d have to go to Hawaii for that, and I assume Hawaii’s beaches are much better than this, but hey,  I’ll take what I can get and be super happy! 🙂


Laguna Beach: This is just the beginning! ;)

Arrived at Laguna Beach, and immediately taken by the purple.

Now down the windy path...

with gorgeous view getting closer...

Ah, now the stairs!

Plus a stable area for the tripod that I left behind the car.

Seal Beach Pier: The End

It irks me that the trash can at the back had to be there. But I'll get another chance with another iron bench on another day. Maybe.

It's facing the wrong way. Does that mean the water is staring at me? *gasp*

The lifeguard tower. Of course. I had to.

Ahh, California Washintonian Palm Trees, prettier in picture sometimes than they are in person.

Seal Beach Pier: Entry

With me giving the usual “I duno” to my sister’s “where do you want to go today?” she decided we’d go to the Seal Beach Pier.

We got there and were lucky that there was parking right across from the pier. Less walking, more picture snapping. Yup!

We parked across on the street though, not in here.

What an interesting idea, a playground on a beach.  Don’t recall seeing that before.

Belmont Pier: Random

I like empty benches.  I really like empty benches.  I don’t have anything against people sitting in them.  But it’s fun taking pictures of empty benches. Please don’t certify me as crazy. Please.

I’m trying to figure out why there’s a lock there and no bike. Unless the bike was invisible. Hmm..

RSM Queen Mary to the right on the back.

Corona del Mar: View from Above and Stuff

I didn't want to join them by getting on the "Jetty." It was windy, and I had the obvious fear: what if the wind drags me into the water...I can't swim..!

Click this image, and then click previous if you want to put yourself through more pictures of boats. Entirely your choice. I wouldn't if I were you. Or would I...

Corona del Mar: Things are a bit rocky

My favorite part about Corona del Mar, and which is why I saved it for last.  Actually, second to last.  I promise, this is almost over, and then something new!  I’m in love with the rocks at this beach though.  Not a lot of the beaches have rocks, where I’m at, and seeing the water make a splash as the waves crash against the rocks is so much fun.
