Last Pics of the Year - Happy New Year 2010: The Dawn of a New Decade

Real Estate Agent with Solutions Real Estate CA DRE #01490977

Happy New Year ActiveRain Friends

I was out touring homes and taking photos and realized that these  will be the LAST photos of the year 2009, and I suppose the decade.

These photos were taken at Grandview Beach in Leucadia (Encinitas), a favorite place to visit which always makes me think about that I really enjoy about being here - great weather, palm trees, the ocean, and wonderful views. I hope YOU enjoy them too, wherever you are!

I want to wish all my ActiveRain friends...those I know and those yet to come...the happiest of New Year's Eves and Best Wishes for 2010.

Cold as can be today in Wisconsin; 8 degrees and my son is ice fishing today. I bet you miss that brisk temperatures at times; no? The warm beach looks so inviting today. I hope you have a magnificent 2010, and it is one of your best years ever!

Happy New Year Jeff,

That was a great message and as for that shot of the Blue Moon, :-) I was going to take a picture last night but was busy writing and working with a Buyer client to write an offer on a property we saw yesterday. I have taken several moon shots this year but the more important moon was last last . The Blue moon comes about every 19 or 29 years, I can't rememer exactly what was said on the news but it will be a long time till the next one. I will be really old, dead, blind or living in a nursing home when the next comes along( depending on which of the number of years it is) so tonight, if I can keep my wits about me, I will be out there once again to offer another moon shot. It almost sounds like I am photgraphing a rocket shot to outer space but it will a photo of the Blue Moon. That is, if it is still in the sky and the clouds don't conceal it. I can't let this opportunity pass for the reasons I stated above. :-)

So here is to " Once in a Blue Moon".

Great pics! And I think a LOT of us are just ready to be out of 2009! Ugh... what a trying year. I'm pleased to see how many people are embracing the new year, and yes, a new decade! There's an encouraging feeling of hope in the air =)

Next blue moon on New Years Eve is 19 years from now, in 2028.

Regular blue moons happen more oten but I'm to lazy to look it up.

Gee, I always thought decades went from 1-10, not 0 - 9.  Who knew?

Hi, Jeff,

I'm a local here in Encinitas, and it was so nice to jump on this site today and see your great photos of Grandview!  I just was there on New Year's to see the labyrinth.  Aren't we just so, so lucky?!  Nice to meet you.....
