Beach: Corona Del Mar, California

Solitary Fisherman - Corona Del Mar, California
I mentioned in yesterday's post that back in July my family and I went to a swap meet in Pasadena, California. Well, after that we headed to the beach, deciding on Corona Del Mar, a place we'd only heard about but had never experienced.

When we arrived we found that the beach was packed. We were lucky to find a halfway decent parking spot, but the beach itself hardly had any free space on the sand. We let the kids splash in the waves.

We decided to explore the beach a little. There's a jetty that we went out on and watched the boats come into and out of the harbor. We spotted a couple of seals.

It was a hot day, and there's no better place to spend a hot day than at the beach. The cold Pacific water and the cool sea breeze keep you comfortable. It was nice to stop here and the place is certainly interesting. It was easy to see why people flock to Corona Del Mar--and, boy, did they flock!

Alas, it had been a busy day and it was time for the long drive home. It was a memorable excursion, for sure. The kids always have fun whenever we visit the beach.

These photographs were captured using a Nikon D3300 DSLR with a Nikkor 55-200mm AF-S DX f/4-5.6G ED II lens attached to the front. I used Alien Skin Exposure 7 to post-process the images.
