Beach Music

Is there anything as calming as the sound of the sea? Watching the waves is mesmerizing for me. I could do it all day.


We took out time last Friday, driving down the coast to San Diego. After 3 hot months in the desert, we really needed a beach fix. The water was cool and refreshing, the sand was warm and squishy, and it was a chamber of commerce day here in Oceanside, CA.


It is a perfect weekend getaway when you get to share great food and wine with good friends, have a taste of Italy (more on that tomorrow), AND walk along a beach!

Dear Palma and Brad,

This post and these photos brought back vivid memories of my growing up in Long Beach. My sister and I OFTEN drove down the old Highway 101 to Newport, Laguna, Oceanside, San Clemente for body-surfing, for "anemone stepping", for swimming where there were no breakwaters (like there was in Long Beach).

I grew up on the Pacific-it was a fundamental part of my life...I know so well the magic of a day on the beach, whether it be for swimming, walking, reading, body-surfing. It DOES have a hypnotic effect with the waves.

Happy memories...and a good dose of nostalgia are evoked by this post!!!!


Barb Cabot:

Love the photos! Perfect beach weather for you and Brad.


beautiful pics! i grew up on the coast as well, but was it was the dreary climate of pacifica AKA pneumonia gulch!lol

i always tell my kids how 'we' (my siblings and I) never actually saw fireworks..just a "glow" thru the dense, dense fog. lol

life comes full circle. i again live on the coast but in picturesque santa cruz. with sunny summers to boot!

I know just what you mean by the calming sound of the sea and the mesmerizing waves. I can stand at the edge of the ocean for hours watching the waves lap over my feet. The ocean is where I go whenever I am upset.
