It's been chilly here, mostly at night. We have had a lot of rain this winter. But, all in all, I have to say we have it pretty darn good here in CA.
I went to down to the Harbour in Oceanside and it was lovely. Like I said, a bit chilly but not bad.
I love going down by the beach in the winter. It's so peaceful and quiet.
Not many people are brave enough to go into the water during the winter so the life guard stations all get closed down for the season.
Going to the beach in the summer is so different. It's full of people, noise of everyone laughing and kids yelling with joy and it's full of life.
The winter brings on tranquil, almost melancholy feelings. It seems like the world is so large and you are so small.
Moss grows on the rocks in the winter. Not enough sun to really burn it off I guess.
The boat slips are full of the boats waiting to go out in the summer.
I love this picture of the man, alone with his dog.
A few surfers still can't give up the urge to ride the waves.
Foot prints that are left in the sand are those of flippers rather then bare feet.
A father and son are not fazed by the dip in temperature. They are just having fun exploring and searching for shells.
The beach in the winter can be a lonely place.
Even the boardwalk is empty.
But, it's still a great place to go grab a bite to eat. No waiting in lines.
