I apologize if you’ve seen some of these photos in a previous post, but I want to add one to the lot and keep them all together in one post about our San Diego beaches. My next post will probably feature more frost photos so I need images of the beach to keep my bones warm a little longer.
Last weekend, I did something I haven’t done in a very long time: go to the beach with my kids. I live less than 30 minutes away from it and I don’t go very often. Why? Mostly because of the sand. It gets everywhere, especially with kids! Between your toes, in your clothes, your hair, your mouth, argh… But we’ve been talking of going to look at tide pools for months, and the winter’s low tides occur more often at times when we’re awake. Coronado Beach, just across from downtown San Diego is my favorite beach in town and it deserves its “best beach in the USA” status.
Unfortunately, we didn’t see many tide pools there but I’m planning to go to another beach soon for that. Instead, we spent the morning enjoying the ocean breeze (I love that iodine smell!), looking for shells and writing in the sand. The weather was beautiful and Coronado beach looked like this (remember to click on each image for a larger view):
The waves were a decent size and quite noisy. The boys loved to look at them and I enjoyed taking pictures of the big rolls coming in. Look how pretty!
The day was perfect to take the sailboats out and they were lined up coming out of the San Diego Bay by Point Loma.
After our walk on the beach, we went back to the sidewalk to walk to the Hotel Del Coronado (I love that place!). On our way, I snapped this picture showing the mild weather you can find by the beach in San Diego. A perfect January day!
I need some warmth too, although we have no frost yet.
Our last summer was ridiculously hot and this winter has been pretty cold overnight. My garden plants are not doing well at all with all this frost. 😦
Wow – those are gorgeous photos! The ocean never disappoints. I walked along that beach and through that hotel once a couple years ago. I loved the historical feel of the hotel and the beach reminded me a little of Cape Cod.
You live even closer to the ocean than I am. I tend to take it for granted and don’t go there enough. I love the Hotel Del, especially as I walk through it maze of hallways. My six-year old observed it was a “very fancy” hotel as we were walking through it. He’s quite observant and sure made me laugh!
