Posts Tagged ‘Huntington Beach’

I said I would post again SOON.  Ahem.  (Twelve days without posting in Bloggerland is like twelve weeks in the real world).  But you know how it is; things come up, complications arise, blah blah blah.  The main thing is, everything and everybody is OK.  We’ve had some sunny days and some cloudy days, but overall it’s pretty darn gorgeous here in Southern California.

Without further ado, here’s some proof:

Sweet Pea wants you to know that Dog Beach in Huntington Beach is a really great place to let your dog be a dog:

Where's the stick?

Here's the stick!

Here's the stick again...shorter, the more we play...

...and here's a surfer...

...and here's an oil drill rig platform... 🙂

Actually, the platforms look pretty cool at night, lit up like ships in the ocean.  There are only a couple of them left, but Huntington Beach still has vestiges of the long-gone oil boom.  As you walk down the streets near the beach, you’ll pass the occasional million-dollar house with a fenced-off sand lot next to it containing a little drill rig, perched like a grasshopper in a small field.

Parks are nice places to hang out, too, and you never know who you’re going to meet:

"I like a nice drink of nectar first thing in the morning. Tall decaf, please."

But the end of the day provided this shot:
