Desert territory

Spending the weekend in the desert at a Pacific Islander festival. Sounds contradictory, I know.

San Diego weekend

Book Tales in Encinitas. A charming used book shop I will definitely be visiting again.

Vintage Sears sewing machine.

Who needs filters and editing tools for this kind of spectacular show?

Beach rainbow! #dp365

Never seen a rainbow at the beach before! This one hung around for an hour or so. Now I have to research why they happen.

Sun and smoke

88 degrees at 6:45pm feels cool when it was triple digits all day.

Whale tails

This evening I stood in the surf and watched a whale kick its tail just offshore.

A couple of spouts preceded the tail, but the glare from the low sun quickly made it impossible to follow along. A lovely special treat.

Blues

Daytime blues fade into twilight blues on the road home.

The road trip was far from over at that point. In all, it ended up being a 13 hour trip home. Long, but the scenic route was worth it.

Seeing scattered clumps of California poppies is one of my favorite things about spring.

January or June?

I know it’s freezing in many parts of the U.S., but here in SoCal it’s unseasonably warm and dangerously dry. Today felt like beach weather. I even had to dig out a fan to cool the house off. Winter, where are you?

Sandy Christmas greetings to you! I snapped this one on a day excursion to Newport Beach with some friends. Gotta love a Christmas tree on the beach.
