A Different Perspective...

Yesterday, my Roomie and I were in search of a relaxing day in slightly cooler temps than was our local weather.  We were again hitting close to triple digits, so off we went to explore out near the ocean as it is only about an hour away.

First we stopped in the small town near our destination, enjoying a few of the shops.  We went in search of a "gown" that my Roomie needed for an upcoming Halloween project for our residents where we work.  They put together a Haunted House last year that was a big hit.  So we made sure that our stops included some of the many Thrift stores along the main street there. 

Then being not far from where we had visited the Tidepools in my recent post... it is only a short jaunt up the road, we thought we would stop by there and do some additional exploring.  This is where we found a totally different perspective....

This trip....                                                                     Last trip...
It was rather foggy and the tides were very high with rip currents on this visit.  Left one with a very different feel of the beach, but the temperatures were in the low sixties, much better than the triple digits at home.

Mist filled the air,
Surfers paddled out beyond the breakers,
Seagulls blended into the foggy sky.

Still, a day at the shore, relaxing, enjoying the ever present beauty of nature and the water.

Good Job Trina. Yes it was a fun day but I still wanted to see if there were any star fish out there. I know when I was standing in the surf the sand was washing out from under me a lot faster then it did the last time we were there.

sounds like a lovely day at the shore...and that does trump a hot day at home indeed.

I could feel the fog, it makes me feel so much better to be in that weather than the 110 if was here on Sat. Thank you for taking me along

Isn't this what they always say: 'it all depends on your perspective'.
I find looking at the same place under different circumstances makes for an interesting life!
