Wordless Wednesday: Life's a Beach

Sometimes It's a Lily Pad

 

Turtle in Playa Vista CA

 

Concert Park is a wonderful park in Playa Vista CA (part of the tech and start-up area known as Silicon Beach in LA) we've visited several times with 2 of the grandkids. We did so again yesterday when we joined our older daughter and her family for lunch by her office, then some playtime.

 

There are several ponds with lots of lily pads and ducks, and a bunch of turtles which of course delighted kids and adults!

Hi Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty 

There were several others but further away - this was my best photo. It was a beautiful day and he or she was clearly enjoying the sun.

Jeff- I can see that is a place that would delight both young and young at heart. I love turtles.  I had one that size as a kid.

Hi Gwen Fowler-CRS- 864-638-3599 SC Mountains & Lakes--  I daresay turtles are pretty good at that.

It was great fun Ron and Alexandra Seigel . I enjoyed seeing them first and being able to point them out. It was a beautiful day to be out and about for a little bit. This park is an oasis in a pretty congested area of high tech companies.

They did Sheri Sperry - MCNE® and also enjoyed watching the ducks. We didn't have any food but someone else did and that kept everyone entertained for a few minutes. We've taken the kids there when they were younger for duck feeding.

Great shot, Jeff!  For weeks now I've been trying to photograph some turtles I've seen on a log in the small lake where we walk. They must have eyes on the back of their heads because if I step just a little closer, they rush into the water.

Morning Jeff.

Like Kathy Streib stated.  They have eyes in the back of their head.  Could never get close enough to get a photo before they hit the water

I have not seen a lily pad in person in a very long time, I have always felt they look so neat.

Ha ha Dave Rosenmarkle . Not fun for the turtles OR the residents! Be safe.

I've seen the weather on the news - it looks pretty ugly.

Hi Sharon Lee 

It's a nice park and beautifully maintained. The kids had a great time.

I had one of those really small turtles as a kid, but used to enjoy finding the box turtles in the yard now and then.

I wondered about that, too Grant Schneider  But he can swim so I guess he doesn't have to worry!

Thanks George Souto  I lucked out - I only had my iPhone with me.

Hi Kathy Streib  - that happens often when trying to capture wildlife, at least for me!

James Dray  Ha ha, guess they can move fast when they want or need to.

This one was looking pretty lazy in the sun.

They really are cool looking Brian England  and I like the flowers.

The ones we saw in Maui were beautiful.

You have to wonder how the turtle gets up on that delicate lily pad.

Nature and my camera are good friends, Sally K. & David L. Hanson , although I do not always do it justice.

Indeed Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 

There were several swimming around but I did not get the chance to see any climbing on the lily pads, or moving off.
