In November, I flew south to California, leaving the rain behind me! My friends and I visited Crystal Cove State Park, just north of Laguna Beach- and it was absolute bliss. I love the ocean and the quality of light was so beautiful! I took lots of photos to share with you and for inspiration for future paintings. I'll share some of those with you in future posts. Meanwhile I thought that you might enjoy having a little break and pretend you are at the beach too! : )
I took alot of pictures of the shorebirds because they run so fast in and out with the waves. I am delighted that these turned out. The two above is the same bird. Aren't you glad that you don't have to stick your head into the wet sand to get dinner?
Below is the same fellow, as he is running madly up the beach to stay ahead of the wave.
