See you in September


Stretching an accidental break from the blog into two weeks off.

See you next month! (I know that's actually only six days away -- where did the summer go? -- but 'next month' sounds so long and leisurely.)

autumn morning in paradise cove

Can't imagine anyone is more surprised than I am that today is the 11-year (!) anniversary of this blog.

This morning in Solstice Canyon

painted lady?

It's supposed to be a morning walk but with the puppy along it turns into an inventory, her second visit to Solstice Canyon and not a leaf or twig or tree or stone or shrub that isn't infinitely interesting.

So Walt and I slow down, visuals giving way to what you hear (the creek, the parrots, something large moving through the underbrush) and smell (drying sage) and feel (the breeze, so sweet, that breeze) while standing still. Until, inching along, we come upon the butterfly, just one, resting.

A painted lady? Beautiful.

Cooling trend

After a few hours of running errands on the warmer side of the Santa Monica Mountains, the cool swirl of the marine layer is always a welcome sight.

Signs of Saturday: Lifeguard


Plenty of work for our intrepid county lifeguards this summer, with record-breaking heat bringing record-breaking crowds to the SoCal coast.

tbt: Winter is coming?

It's so hot and steamy here at the beach that a reminder of cool winter weather is called for.

Trading places

I promise this isn't going to become all dogs all the time but Walter taking refuge in the puppy's crate just cracks me up.
