I'm in Huntington Beach frequently, and yet still, I find myself humming the song Surf City every time I'm there.
I don't usually go to Huntington when I want beach time. I prefer the more remote, quiet beaches. Huntington Beach is where Big.Events are held and tourists flock. I do find myself in the city for various business needs quite often though. Last Saturday, I took my camera along so I could share my day in Surf City with you.
To start with, it was a beautiful day.
As always, there were numerous games of beach volleyball taking place. I was very interested in watching the games, of course.
(Cougar? Did someone call me a cougar?)
I decided to break some photography rules and take photos directly into the sun. Maybe I thought you'd like to see crappy photos? Also, even though they aren't photographically-correct photos, they do give you a good feel for how things looked to me with the sun glaring in my eyes.
This is Main Street where the cute tourists shops and restaurants are. I took this as I was walking down to the beach.
I kept walking, crossed PCH (the famed Pacific Coast Highway) and found myself still looking straight into the sun, but now I was on the pier.
The ocean was exceptionally pretty on Saturday. (And yes, it does look very different on a day to day basis.)
I watched the surfers for quite awhile.
Not long after that, it was time to head down PCH towards home.
I snapped this through the car windshield just for you:
