I am smitten with The Salt Life!
I need to get a shirt.
Oops! Maybe not that one!
Perhaps a window cling for the car?
Anyway, I admit my obsession and apologize in advance for MORE pictures of the sea.
We've had another tropical storm yesterday and we chose Huntington Beach State Park, about 25 minutes up the coast, for our morning beach walk.

"Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone." Anonymous
Last night we were returning home from a history lecture. The full moon was playing peekaboo with the clouds, we were going right past the turnoff to the beach. We had to stop. The second visit in one day!
We heard the boom of the surf before we even got out of the car.
The waves were wild and loud and pounding right up to the dunes. The brilliant light reflected in the roiling water was like a million twinkling stars.
We were mesmerized.
"When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea,
and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise,
and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused."
— Rainer Maria Rilke
