Hello Friends

How are you all doing?

We are still here in the San Diego area of California,
for those of you who know the area we are in Imperial Beach.
The most southwest you can get in the states.
The best thing about being here this time of the year is the weather.




No shortage of finding things in Bloom in this part of the country.




The hardest part is to grab a shot that's doesn't have a
bit of a blur in.  That's due to the Ocean breeze. 




I do love that bit of moisture that is always in the air.




Life since we got here has been anything but ordinary.
It's a pretty laid back atmosphere here.  
Which I could get totally used to.




I haven't gotten much of anything done.
You think I would have finished a book or a knitting project by now.
Maybe a little bit of baking.  Heck I haven't even taken too many photos. 
We spend our days combing the beach and enjoying the fresh air.
Taking hikes and going to bed way to early.



These last two shots were taken from my cell phone from a Hike we
did yesterday.  The hike was recommended to me by an Instag,ram friend.
And I have to say it did not disappoint.  The end of the hike was here at the Ocean.

So friends, we are only here for 3 more weeks so you know where you can find me.


Linking up with

I wanted to say THANKS YOU to everyone
for all your kind comments from my last post. 
You guys are the best. 

Till next time. 

Hugs~

Beautiful. It's nice to see things blooming. We have an ocean breeze here as well....it's blowing in the single digits though.

Terry said...

Glad you are enjoying your days at the beach! This time of year we do start to have some budding here and I always hope a freeze won't occur! Love the blooming photos and nice walk on the beach! Keep on enjoying! Hugs!

What a wonderful place you are in just now, sounds like paradise! Enjoy your stay and the beach and the sea. Hugs, Valerie

I so know you mean about the breeze...some days it's just down right difficult to get a shot of anything here on the coast for the same reason. We had some warmer days, but I wasn't able to get down to the beach. Now it's cold (40's - don't laugh, lol).

Your photo's continue to make me wish for California, Linda! Love your ocean scenes. I am off to the grocery store and the bank, it is 41 and very cold here. Happy beach combing...looks so very clean!

So wish I was on that beach right now. Enjoy your time there.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos. We've winter and snow here in Germany.

Barb said...

Linda, I think you're living the saying, "Life's a Beach!" I enjoy your photos of the growing things, but the beach shots steal the show for me. No snow and warm - that's a concept I could live with!

Barbara said...

Right up my alley, flowers and beach, love the flowers just so gorgeous Linda. Have a wonderful time.

Buttons said...

Hi Linda-san Diego is a favorite place to visit. (I live in the LA area) we usually take the train. It stops right in front of the StAr of India. Enjoy the rest of your stay. Beautiful photos.

Audrey Pettit said...

There really is nothing like the California beach life! I do miss it quite a bit, I must say. So glad you are enjoying your time there. I'd be doing just what you're doing... spending every moment just taking it in. :)
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful photos!

The fresh air and sunshine look fabulous! I'd be out hiking and beach combing too, if I were there. It looks dreamy from here in the frozen hard north. :)
Enjoy these weeks, Linda!

Molly said...

Love how you have played with depth of fields in these and created the soft focus

Tracy said...

Going to bed too early? Sounds like your wearing yourself out with all that walking...and that's a good thing. :-) Beautiful shots and some inviting scenery. Enjoy that warmth my friend. It's as scarce as hen's teeth. Hugs!

Hello lovely Linda, it's so nice to see your photos, it's so grey and cold here that they've really been a warming tonic! Have a lovely weekend! X

that third picture - we have a tree like that in our backyard. didnt realise we would share the same type of trees, given the differences in our climates.

Gail Dixon said...

You are living quite the life! Love it. Seems so relaxing and you are photographing some amazing things. Enjoy!

Sue Lelli said...

Breath taking photos, Linda! LOVE the phone ones too. I might even think about taking up hiking if that was the end result!
