Time To Take A Walk On The Beach!
That’s my wife Alex, soaking up the sun and the sea – a “socially distanced” getaway for a few days!
My latest “Six Shot Saturday” series comes from a beach in Malibu, California – sitting on the Pacific Ocean with expansive views and spectacular sunsets…
“Six Shot Saturday” Has #Wanderlust!
It’s a unique time in history: a worldwide pandemic that has changed the ways we live our lives…no travel, millions left without work, parents not sure when and if their children can go back to school – so much has been turned “upside down” for all of us – so my wife and I rented a house on the beach for a few days to take a deep breath and try to have a semblance of normalcy – and the beauty of nature does that for us…
These six shots capture a few days of relaxation in the midst of the pandemic – starting with a glass of wine as we looked at the ocean – and then we took a walk on the beach to see nature creating a beautiful landscape of run:
While we relaxed, we also did work, and some physical activities as well, which Alex dutifully noted on her Instagram account – as you can see, I love the water:
OK, we all know that’s not me, but I did have fun with the people who asked…and I also shared this as an example of what I could do if I chose to:
We were warned that winter storms had caused a lot of beach erosion, and some of the underlying rocks were noticeable for the first time ever: as you can see, they house a lot of Mussels, which normally wouldn’t be seen above water – and some had not been exposed for so long they had the chance to grow a nice green lawn:
Since the tide comes in twice a day, we got the chance to see the force of nature in the waves throughout the day and night:
And while my iPhone doesn’t capture great pictures in the dark, we also were able to watch the sunset, and the moon rise over Santa Monica to the south:
For those of you who read me regularly, you know the I’ve shared some unique Malibu sunsets before:
What could be more spectacular than this?
Well, what if you were drinking a Dry Martini at the same time, then it would look like this!
I shared some gorgeous shots of Malibu in a series called “life thru liquid” – you can see more of my life though beverages by clicking on the story here:
I have also shared a lot of the marine life I’ve come across in Malibu, but this is by far the most unique:
Yes, they are wild blue Jellyfish!
