Morning On Main Beach

Laguna Beach: Morning At Main BeachThis photo was taken back in August 28, 2007. I had purchased a digital camera 10 days prior. This is a JPG straight out of the camera. Because the camera did such a good job of converting RAW files to JPGs it took me a couple more years before I started shooting in RAW exclusively.

I was shooting pictures of Laguna Beach previously with a 35MM film camera but for some reason never posted them. Even stranger I first set up this blog in 2005 but only posted 10 or 12 times before the age of the digital camera. Once I started shooting digital I posted at least one photo everyday for years. Only the crash of a laptop and the flu in 2014 prevented me from posting. That comes to 5423 posts. I have no idea how many photos but it's at least the same number.

First Day Of Lifeguard Training

Laguna Beach: First Day Of Lifeguard TrainingThey qualified to start training to be a Laguna Beach lifeguard. Now they start their lifeguard training. Not all will prevail.

This first exercise is a swim to Bird Rock and back to the buoy and then another trip to Bird Rock and back.

That's correct two trips to Bird Rock.

I get tired just thinking of the experience.

Wildflowers Still In Them Hills

Laguna Beach: Wildflowers Still In Them HillsThis is just above the Festival grounds. So it isn't all that difficult a hike. Though I don't recommend Saturday or Sunday walks in the wilderness park because of all the dirt bike people riding the trails. They can be reckless.

Friday Photo Of Festival Grounds

Memorial Point At Low Tide

Laguna Beach: Memorial Point At Low TideWell, I got some color today (Monday.) What is frustrating is spending 2 hours down at Main Beach and Heisler Park and I saw 1 minute of Sun. Really ONE minute. Then after going to Ralphs and driving back to the house, I see that the clouds had cleared and the Sun was shining in all its glory.

Well, here is Memorial Point at low tide and some green among all the brown.

Now, on a Tuesday morning the Sun rises on a clear sky. One only hopes it stays that way.

That didn't last long. By 9 AM it was completely overcast. Welcome to Spring in Laguna Beach.
