I was just getting into my GorTex rain gear for my morning walk when my neighbor called to tell me her foot was hurting and she couldn’t accompany me. I don’t usually walk alone in the neighborhood because of some past encounters with dogs, but decided to be brave, as I’d missed too many days recently. So I headed out. As I got to the end of our dirt road I could hear the ocean two miles away and had a thought. Why don’t I grab my camera and get my exercise while doing two things I love to do – walk along the beach and take pictures?
So that’s what I did, and here are some of the results.

With the exception of a couple of years in the 80’s I’ve lived all my life within a few miles of the      Pacific Ocean. So it’s not too surprising that when I bought my first digital camera I would begin shooting pictures there. Here are 8:
