Newport Beach

I've been in heaven with our weather lately.  I'm not trying to make you feel bad if you're surrounded by snow right now, I just can't help enjoying how nice it has been here.

I spent a lot of time at the beach this weekend.  There weren't many people there – at least, not in the late, late, afternoon when I like to be there.

The above photo was taken at Crystal Cove in Newport Beach.  You can see the little "river" heading out to the ocean with the run-off from recent storms.

It was in the 80's here this weekend.  (27+C)

I could have spent every waking second at the beach if real life didn't include responsibilities and boring grown-up stuff.

I did see a couple tourists walk by.  Tourists are often very easy to spot.

I was so happy to be at the beach after a couple weeks filled with a lot of negativity.  I was ecstatic to have my camera in my hands.  When you've had no little use of your arm for several years you really appreciate the small things.

After a bit of a climb, I sat on some very pointy, sharp, rocks for a long time waiting to get some nice sunset shots.

It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it.

(I want you to know my butt really hurt sitting on those rocks.)

The waiting paid off though.  It was one of the most vivid, beautiful sunsets I've seen in a long time.

I know you're going to think I photoshopped the hell out of these next two photos, but I didn't.  They didn't need it – the sky was spectacular all on its own.

That's Catalina Island you see the sun dropping behind in the distance.  I have a lot of childhood, summertime, memories of Catalina.  It holds a special spot in my heart.

After the sun dropped, the sky continued to put on a beautiful light show for quite some time.

So beautiful!

And that's why I love Orange County ….

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women
    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/
    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?
    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.
    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    Well, as an immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste American woman – Beloved wouldn’t have me any other way – let me just say I am in love with the second sunset photo. And don’t hate you (much) for your spectacular weather. 😛

    Rambo came back posing as someone else and was rude and offensive. He’s been deleted and blocked. Sorry … I know his first comment was highly entertaining.

    Awwww…I missed the rude and offensive bit. I’m jealous – the only trolls I get are friends of my ex’s second wife.
