By The Sea, By The Beautiful Sea

Of all the paths you take in life, make sure one leads to the sea.

With a bit of an apology to John Muir from his wise words: "Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt."

Sand is dirt, right? I have spent a good deal of my life in New England and visited the ocean many tines, especially living in Rhode Island for 15 years.  So a very quick trip to see my son in Midcoastal California- Monterey-fed my soul. We went on a marvelous whale watching expedition accompanied by dolphins and watching Orcas, gray whales and other marine animals like cute sea otters, sea lions and harbor seals.

But watching the sunset in Carmel-by-the-Sea is a thing. It really is.  As dusk fast approached, more and more cars came down to the beach with cameras.

There was such a beautiful mist along the edges of the beach too.

Even a sand sculpture artist with his two black labs nestled in front of his handmade castles.

Ahhhhhhh. What a lovely trip. By the Sea, by the Beautiful Sea.

I'm very fond of the ocean!  I live in Sacramento valley, where 100 miles west is the Pacific Ocean, and to the east is Lake Tahoe and the mountains.  If I have energy to spend, I'll head for the mountains; but if I need to be restored, I head for the beach!

What a wonderful location in which to live, Myrl!

I agree, Sharon, I love those long walks and we look for sea glass too.  I have some from both coasts.

Such beautiful scenes that you have shared Barbara, makes me want to go on another trip soon.  The last few times I have been working near a coast I failed to take the time to drive down to the ocean, next time I will.

Btw, next time you are in Carmel, stop and visit Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor®  I am sure you will enjoy the visit.

Yes, that beach is just down the street from my office in Carmel-by-the-Sea from which I can see the beautiful sunsets. And we "Carmelites" never take it for granted.

As sunset grew near, more and more people came flocking to the beach with cameras!  How lucky you are, Hella, to live in this gorgeous area!
