sunday funday at dog beach

I met up with a few girlfriends Del Mar‘s dog beach today. The dog loves the beach, just hanging out, chillin’, dog and people watching, and splashing in the water. ET has a Jack Russell, JS has a new retired greyhound, and I’ve got the mutt.

The downside to this dog beach is that it costs $3/hr to park on the street. I only had about $4.50, so I got 1 1/2 hours of time. This is an area that is heavily ticketed, and just as I walk up to my car there is the bike cop on patrol. He asked if the car was mine, and he said I just made it. He was so ready to write me a ticket! I was like “I didn’t know it took so long to get from the water!” Oh geez, that was so close. Then I saw him write up a ticket for a car a couple down from me. Del Mar is really hard up for their parking fees!

So, now that I dodged a bullet, I took a minute to look to the east before I left the parking spot, and I saw this:

1 hot air balloon, and the view to the east

2 hot air balloons

Pretty neat, and now I want to go up in one to see the view and the sunset! Another day for sure.

Then as I make a u-turn to head north to go home, I look back at dog beach and see this beautiful sight:

just beautiful and stunning. I was driving and had to hurriedly take the shot, but it turned out so well. God was with me today, and I thank him for providing everything I needed today.

And one final pic that sums up how the dog feels about the day:
