hermosa beach

I had the flu Halloween weekend (not very bad, thank goodness), Mr WS has been sick for over a week (a cold) and this past weekend I came down with a cold. Nothing’s been posted for over a week and a half because I just haven’t felt like it and, besides, we haven’t done anything or been anywhere. So, I decided I’d dig into some photos from my old website to share.

The beach cities are our favorite places to visit, so how about some photos of Hermosa Beach? Manhattan and Redondo beaches can wait for another day. These photos are anywhere from a couple to several years old so the quality isn’t that great, but I figure ANY photo of a beachy area is good.

Hermosa Beach strand

First of all, the Hermosa Beach strand. Ahhh, can't you just feel the warm sunshine and smell the fresh ocean air?

It seems there are always people on the strand and many take their dogs along with them.

What's Southern California without palm trees?






palm trees

Just about everywhere you look in Southern California there are palm trees of all shapes and sizes. To me, California (at least So Cal) wouldn’t be California without palm trees and over the years I’ve taken lots of photos of them, so I decided post a few here.
