* For those of you who requested it, I will have news on ordering the hummingbird standout photo in tomorrow's post. *
It was a perfect day yesterday.
Of course, perfect weather meant … beach.
Here's a look at the road leading to one of my favorite (secret!) beaches:
Beautiful, isn't it?!
You really have to be careful not to drive over the guardrail or you'll go tumbling off the bluff onto "my" beach.
Here's a look at the little cove below:
See what I mean?
Isn't it pretty?
The water was so BLUE and AQUA-ISH yesterday!
There's a little hidden path, which in turn leads to a zillion stairs down to the beach.
When my kids were young, they loved the attraction of the arch (shown below). I wouldn't let them near it if I wasn't with them.
The arch is more dangerous than it looks. The tide comes up quickly and you can get trapped on the other side of it. There's also a "hole" right as you step through to the other side. You think you're on solid footing and then whoosh! you're in deeper water than expected.
Last week, a woman nearly drowned after she went out on the rocks near the arch. A wave knocked her in the water and she didn't know how to swim. Why would she have gone out onto rocks in the ocean if she didn't know how to swim? Why do people do stupid things like that? In any case, a man was on the balcony of his beach house, saw her plight, and went in after her – saving her life.
When the tide is down, it's a much safer situation.
(Funky colors in the above photo – sorry! I was experimenting with filters!)
In upcoming posts, I'll share more about this special beach. I don't want to bore you with too many photos in one day.
I do have to say again, though …..
