This weekend I spend several hours walking along some beautiful beaches. Beaches in Northern California are so often cool and windy, but really gorgeous. So much wildlife. Harbor seals (see the third photo), sea otters, butterflies, all kinds of birds… we didn’t get to go whale watching though. Next time, for sure. It made me miss so much going swimming in the ocean in New Jersey, and I started checking airfares for a summer visit as soon as I got home. Here are some of my favorite photos.
