Winter in Orange County

I’m going to be taking some time off over upcoming days, so please don’t worry about me if I’m not posting daily.

I’ll be stopping in here, now and again, between now and the beginning of 2013.

I will, however, be skipping a few days and abandoning my “regular” schedule.

I’ll be focusing on family and holidays and, and, and …!

When I have time, I’m sure I’ll post a couple holiday photos and/or recipes.

(If you’re missing me, check in with me on Facebook or other social media networks.  I’m sure I’ll be somewhere.)

For today, I thought I’d share two recent photos of our cold December weather.

(Yes, it really HAS been cold!)

The other day, I found myself alone on a stormy, windy, beach.

I was SO cold, but I wanted to snap a few shots before the rain arrived.

I was happy to see the above sea urchin posing for me on the sand.

(For those of you who aren’t used to sea urchins, when they die they lose their spines.  I was lucky to come across one on the sand.)

The second photo was taken at Little Corona beach in Newport Beach.

Little Corona is usually packed with people.

It’s also a very popular place for wedding and family photographers.

I think this was the first time I’ve ever  (!!)  seen Little Corona completely empty.

The solitude was wonderful.

    I’m glad you’re having winter – it has yet to arrive here in northeast Ohio (although it’s coming – snow in the forecast for tomorrow).

    Words cannot express how much I love, love, LOVE that first photo. Simply stunning.

    Someday I would love to help haul your gear and watch you work (and find all of these great beach spots!).

    Merry Christmas, I hope your family has a joyous and peaceful season.

    Merry Christmas ,Honey!! thanks for sending the cards, I have them. Just wanted to let you know you are ever in my thoughts for your upcoming “:next step”. Have a great holiday, enjoy your friends and family. I hope you will put the rest away till it’s time. Thanks for the wonderful, wonderful gift. The new salon is going MEGA-slow, so of course, evry single day at least four clients ask me when the move date is…… I dont have one, so I have moved our grand opening party somewhere close to Valentines day.
