Oceanside Pier California

When we can’t be in the Caribbean we travel by car over to the California coast for a quick fix and dose of the Pacific Ocean and it’s sandy beaches.  This is a lovely spot in Oceanside, California to view on an evening walk along the beach. The building out on the pier is a Ruby’s Diner where you can get a great Kobe beef hamburger and homemade milkshake.  The water is too cold for us to take a swim.  We are often surprised by the number of swimmers and surfers venturing out into the waves.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

      Glad you liked it. I did a little photoshop enhancement to brighten the lights. Have fun on a coastal trip.
