Celebrating a Milestone in my Life ...

Make Time for Small Reflections
This is my beach world
Southern California
a delightful place!

Sixty-five today
don't feel more than forty-four
on most sunny days ;-)

Last year

started out my special day ...
This year my sister

is in town and we'll
get together after my
morning class to walk

with our cameras
beach & pier ... snapping photos
(weather permitting)

ending up at Duke's

'Barefoot Bar' to celebrate
late this afternoon ...

yummy fish tacos
Margarita on the rocks
Hula Pie to share


Did I mention how

much I love to read, write and
share my photographs?

Oh! Happy Birthday to you! How wonderful. Do people really go barefoot to the barefoot bar? I posted a macro shot of my margarita on my photo blog. Have fun celebrating.

I love reading your blogs and looking at your photos just as much as you do creating them! I always wanted a sibling, and your sister sounds so very special. I was an only child. Love the pictures! A rainbow and a drink!

Sylvia K said...

A very Happy Birthday to you!! Next to me you're still a teenager!! When I was your age I was having a great time in a new job. I finally retired five years later. Looks like you had a great time and the Margarita looks delicious! Enjoy many more -- birthdays and Margaritas!!

The margarita topped it all off best. But the fish tacos? No way. Had one and will never have another. They're not meant to be tacos. LOL

I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Your beach photos are so lovely. That is one of my favorite activities--walking on the beach. Of course, our nearest beach is around 400 miles away so I don't get to do it often.

Ann said...

What a beautiful place to call home, I would love walking on the beach. I have to do that on vacation only. We like smack dab in the middle of America so for us to go to the beach it takes 2 days of travel time.

gengen said...

Happy birthday hope you have many more to come...God bless you always. happy watery Wednesday too.

Diane AZ said...

Happy Birthday! Looks like you had a fun afternoon. I love the flying gulls at the beach. :D

2sweetnsaxy said...

Oh, these are great! I'm lucky when I capture a bird in flight. You've got so many. To answer your question, no I didn't walk across to the beach. It's on PCH and there's no real way to access it unless you drive in or you're crossing in front of a parking entrance. Besides, I'd just spend 3 hrs walking around Bolsa Chica. The drive was fine. LOL!

What a fabulous way to celebrate your birthday!

Great shots of the birds in flight.
Happy Birthday too. Looks like a nice area for walking.

It looks like a wonderful birthday--congratulations! You're a special lady!!

A belated Happy Birthday! I'm not that far behind you in age :-)

S CA looks perfect to me today after I spent the morning shoveling snow. It has been a long winter in the NE!
