2016 Jan 29 – Day 19 – California and Beyond

Day 19 – January 29 – Carlsbad, CA – Day 14

Because we had gone out THREE DAYS IN A ROW! we didn’t do much today.   It was our son’s birthday so we were up early – for us – and had a one hour face-to-face talk via Skype with him in Muscat, Oman.  At his house it was 8 pm so his birthday was almost over and yet it was just beginning for us.  Time zones are interesting.

We have friends coming for lunch and a visit tomorrow so I needed to get a few groceries.  Mid-afternoon we decided to go down to the beach and take a stroll, see if we could find a couple of caches, and get our groceries on the way home.

We had no luck finding the caches.  One was supposed to be hidden in a brush/tree ‘bower’ but we couldn’t find it.  We still had over 200 meters to walk along the shore to get to the second one and the tide was coming in quite quickly so we decided to turn back while there was still beach to walk on.

I like the fine foam left on the sand when the wave receded.IMG_5165 IMG_5168 IMG_5171 IMG_5173 IMG_5175IMG_5160 IMG_5183 IMG_5196 IMG_5206This clump of black rocks had steaks of black on the sand deposited by the incoming waves.  IMG_5207

Right after I snapped the above photo a wave came in and buried my feet in water.

Motto: Don’t turn your back on the ocean. IMG_5208

A perfect footprint in the sand.IMG_5215We had a nice walk up and down the beach, got our groceries, BBQ’d some steaks for dinner and are now settled in for a quiet evening.
