Blues in California

Last summer on our trip to California, there were so many opportunities for some great photos.  In keeping with Blue Monday with Smiling Sally, I've loaded up a few of these.  Hope you enjoy them.


We drove north from San Francisco over the Golden Gate to Salinas and had a wonderful vantage point for sail boats emerging from the docks.


The California coast offers such great views of rocks and water, so hubby captured this one  The sea was pretty calm, so not a lot of swells up onto the rocks.  You can see where the waves have been on the rocks. 


The sea is still beautiful at Sunset on a calm day with perfect weather.  I'll save more pictures for a later blog.  Thanks for hosting the Blue Monday, Sally.

This is the first evening in a long time that I'm able to visit others. I'm neck deep in organizing photobooks of our family get-together and trip this summer.

This post is so calming and beautiful. Thank you so much for leaving such lovely comments that take the stress out of my day.

The swirling golden clouds at sunset are lovely, and I like the silhouettes of the pelicans against the ocean...

If you visit the Bay Area again, please take me with you. The Hurricane lives there. I can't stay with her so you'll need to pay for my hotel room, too.

Love,
Janie

Love these blues

Those were wonderful. That boat was the perfect name in your shot, because it looked very serene.
Loved the shot of the rocks and the fact you could see people sitting up on them.
Stunning sky shot as well.
