My World #128: Ocean Beach

When I go to the city, which is not as often as I want, and I am in the neighborhood close enough to the beach I make sure that I stop by for a bit. Such was the case on May 30th, Memorial Day. Our friends took us to lunch in Daly City and we were so close to the beach that we decided to walk off the calories by "hiking" Land's End and walking up and down Ocean Beach.

This post is the Ocean Beach part.

In the past five years, this would be only the 2nd time that I was there where the weather was beach weather - sunny, mid 60s to low 70s, mild breeze and downright beautiful.

Needless to say I brought my camera out to lunch and for a walk. My captures on the beach.

Funny but I never remember a totem pole by the Cliff House before. Has it been here forever?

    PS: Thank you so much for your visiting and kind words of comfort about Flora's passing.
    Flora was so sweet, so adorable and we miss her so much! I'm so heartbroken, so sorrow...

  31. Whenever I visit my daughter, I often take long walks from her condo to the Cliff House and beyond. Now that you mentioned it, I can't remember when I first saw that totem pole!
