La Jolla, San Diego

I spent a lot of time sitting on the beach with my art materials. It is a beautiful place, and the weather was perfect. I had some nice conversations with a few people who stopped to chat.

This is my Watery Wednesday submission – check out the link for more watery posts.

This little guy have learnt that humans are non-threatening. It rummaged through my plastic bag of art materials… it must have been hungry.

There are many seals who live around here. It was easy to spot them on the beach, or swimming in the sea, but we were not allowed to get close.

An interesting sculpture on top of the Contemporary Museum of Art, which is located along the beach

It was closed when I was there, but I could walk around the sculpture garden.

That sculpture is absolutely crazy! How wonderful and weird at the same time! ;D

Thanks Lucia,
I feel the same about the beach, amazing the water can carve into.

Thanks for visiting. I know how busy you are.

Thanks Kaori
Yeah, that's one crazy sculpture. Looks a bit precarious, which is half the appeal to me. Boats in unlikely places - I love that.

LaJolla is one of my favorite places in California! Just love the shot of the beach.
