Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “beaches”. Living in San Diego, it’s easy for me to get to the beach, yet I don’t do it very often. I love the fresh air and the wind, the smell of the ocean. I can’t stand the sand in my shoes and driving around for a parking spot. You can’t have it all!

I featured most of the photos below on my site before but I thought it’d be nice to put them together in a single post on beaches, in this case Coronado Beach. I’m using the gallery format for this today. Click on any photo to open the slideshow. To view any photo in a larger format, just scroll down while in slideshow mode and click on “view full size” on the bottom right on the page. Enjoy!

  1. “it’s easy for me to get to the beach”—Ah, I wish I could say those words. Then again, I suppose if you have it available 24/7, the allure can wear off. The grass is greener effect.

    Lovely photos as always!

    • When I lived in Paris, I LOVED going to the beach in the summer. When I lived in CT, I loved finding myself by the beach or a lake. I just enjoy being close to water in general. I find it very peaceful. We have different types of water bodies here, not just the ocean. I live right by the San Diego River, and even though the water can be very stagnant, I think it still has that calming effect I like, so I don’t crave the ocean as much. And I don’t have to drive and look for a parking space to enjoy it.

  2. The one time I went to Coronado Beach it reminded me of some of the beaches around here because of the sand dunes. That crab photo is a great one. It has a lot of personality.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
