California sunsets.  <3

Steps outside my apartment in Del Mar just north of Torrey Pines.

Half Moon Bay surprise

One of the surprises on my birding walk around Half Moon Bay was this little cutie.


This long-tailed weasel popped out of a hole (squirrel? or gopher?) in the Coastside Trail along a shoreline cliff. 28 more words
