Holding On To Summer

The Summer Season will officially end here in Corona del Mar on Tuesday, September 4th when all the schools go back in session. But we will hold on to summer as long as possible. Not difficult in Southern California.

Each day after work I make the three minute drive from Balboa Island back home and then head straight for the beach...
Here are some of the photographs I captured this past week...

Above: Big Corona del Mar State Beach where already the parking lot is looking empty...or as us 'locals' say...."we get our beach back!" :) Not that we don't love and welcome our visitors ;-)

Above: Crazy weather this week with thunderstorms forming all around us and extreme heat on the coast...

I have been trying to capture a photo of the hummingbirds sitting still, and finally did so this week!

A yacht hit the east jetty and sunk at Big Corona del Mar State Beach...it sat out there for nearly two and a half weeks before finally being raised and towed...truly an odd sight drawing a lot of local attention...

    Once more, lovely photos. I thought of you today as a hummingbird swooped down over my head.

    Lucky you having that to look forward to every day.

    The yacht looks like my dad was at the helm, only he could do something like that! :D

    Absolutely gorgeous photos Jolene!! I am headed to the beach Friday. We always enjoy going after all the other kids are in school. We are celebrating "Not Back To School Week", as we do each year. Being Home Learners, we are always eager for school to start back so we can go wherever we like without fighting crowds!!

    WOW!!! I LOVE the hummingbird picture! It's amazing to watch them perch...so far, I've not been able to catch one not in action.
