One of the nice things about low tides is getting the ability to see some of the wildlife that is undre the ocean. When I took this picture I truly believed that Barnacles were part of the plants kingdom but upon research its a relative of crabs & lobsters! Barnacles are exclusively marine, and tend to live in shallow and tidal waters, typically in erosive settings.
The news is reporting that the economy is slowly turning around and its beginning to recover, I guess it didn’t apply to this surf shop that is located right at the beach in Pacific Beach, San Diego! The location can’t really get any better, I’ve seen a couple of of them being flipped into bars which will automatically attract many college students so I wonder how long this place will be closed down for.
An image of Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach before sunset, I had my heart set on some sunset pictures on the beach for that day but unfortunately the weather was not co-operating. What does one do? Switch up the agenda and start taking some street & city pictures instead You can say that the sunset got “ruined” but that’s a pessimistic view on the circumstances, a more optimistic view would be that the clouds acted like a huge diffuser over the sun which created this beautiful soft ligt when not looking into the sun. In a future post, I’ll share some of the images that I captured but for now I hope you enjoy the one that made me realize that it was time to switch up the agenda.
Belmont Park is a little amusement park in the heart of Mission Beach, San Diego, California. The park was developed by sugar magnate John D. Spreckels and opened on July 4, 1925 as the Mission Beach Amusement Center. One of the original attractions since 1925 include the Giant Dipper, a wooden roller coaster that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (shown above).
An image of Meerkats at the San Diego Zoo, they were made famous by Disney’s animated characters: Timon & Pumbaa from the movie The Lion King. They typically spend the night under ground and don’t come out unless there is sunlight, they primarily feed on fruits, insects, bugs and rodents. Since they can be prey for other animals you will typically see an adult standing at a high point looking out for the others while they feed, the adults alternate this look out role so everyone can eat! I thought it was quite funny observing this behavior at the zoo since they don’t know that they are safe
Not that kind of scripture, but Stone Brewing Company kind of scripture It might be difficult for some to read so in case you’re wondering what it says here is my best attempt:
a fearsome figure carved from stone and thought to have the power to ward off evil spirits.
The Stone Brewing company Gargoyle wards off modern day evil spirits such as chemical preservatives, additives & adjuncts. His presence is your guarantee of quality, (unreadable word) and purity.
Try a fresh Stone Pale Ale today and we think you’ll enjoy the results
