Southern California Autumn

Welcome to our street. I wanted to show you that we have seasons here. Well...at least on our street we have them.




















I might mention it was 90 degrees today. But only for about an hour.




The view...standing in front of our California cottage. You'll notice it's trash day.

Click on the picture and you will feel like you are here.







...even the beach has seasons. Where is everyone?















I live about an hour from the beach...but I managed to get down here a couple of weeks ago...on my way home from the Dead Sea Scrolls experience.

It's kinda nice being alone at the beach.






to think...

to pray...

to breathe




I love to watch the waves.


















And collect shells.











Hold still...aim the camera...how close will he come?
















Goodbye!




I must be going soon.

It's so hard to leave!

Beautiful - thanks for sharing those colorful tree pictures! We were in Georgia in April and were on the beach all by ourselves - I was able to get some great pictures of a whole flock of birds on the beach (I posted it early May), and gather lots of shells. I love it. We're going to Hawaii in 3 weeks, and we try to find deserted places whenever we can.

Have a good week-end! Wondering how you're doing at this end of this week. I hope this Sunday is better!

I'm right at home with the beach pictures. :-)

We don't have a change of seasons out here and I do miss that. Most of our trees are evergreens, the rest have leaves that turn brown, fall off, and blow away. :-(

Great photos. Thanks for sharing those with us Sharon. I grew up in the country and have always loved trees. I love this time of year when the leaves change colour. Your beach photos are good too.
