This has been an incredibly beautiful weekend in the Monterey Bay area. Today the temperatures reached 77 degrees and I decided my soul needed an "airing." Driving toward Monterey the blue skies were glorious.
Fields of gold seemed to sing spring is coming...
... and on the way home I stopped at the beach for a spell.
At first I wondered, what is that creature in this photo? It is not uncommon to see dolphins in these waters, so my first guess was that it was a dolphin, though a very flat one! After zooming in and in and in, I decided it was an optical illusion and is simply a seagull in flight.
The days are getting longer. The beach beckons me to come back more often.
