Waves

Life breaks over us, and I like it when we can laugh. Sometimes I’ve wanted the waves of joy, grief, and challenge to stop. But of course, I love Life and so they continue to surprise me. In recent years I laugh more often. But nothing heavy about this post for me. Just more of the delights from our flight along the Five Cities coast, picking up where we left off with this one of my fav manse in Pismo.

I’d already posted a bigger and different view of this wonderful place on my Photo Page, and someone just sent me info about it that I’ve added in an update there. Nearby I was struck by how similar the offshore rocks are to the Oregon coast we recently enjoyed.

These wear a much thicker coating of accumulated white from years of happy birds though.

This stretch of coast also boasts many sea caves like the ones on the Oregon coast. Yet at the Pismo Pier the cliffs give way to broad beaches as the coastline angles South. It’s well worn by ATVs, RVs, and SUVs, yet still offers a great place for one horsepower riding.

In this last shot I’ll share from that flight you can see our beloved Oceano airport at the upper-right, the beginnings of the vast dunes at the right edge, and I like the hook of water where the estuary meets the sea.

Wonderful waves of relaxation wash over me looking at these pix. I hope they convey at least a little of that easy peace into your day too.
