Sun glasses, pelicans and surfers.

Up late this morning and it was foggy! Or was it a Marine Layer?

Michael had dropped his Cocoon sunglasses in Ruby's yesterday. I called the restaurant last night and they had found them! Fancy that!! someone actually handed them in and did not just pocket them. A quick drive down to the pier and as we pulled into the $5.00 a day parking lot,  a family was leaving and they very kindly handed their ticket over to us. It is valid until midnight. Probably illegal, but hey, $5.00 is $5.00!!

The fog was lifting and the sun was coming out. Another beautiful day. The waves are still high and there was another batch of photographers out. I took some more pictures on the pier and found these young pelicans on the railing hanging around the bait shop.

....and yes, I did pass our parking ticket on to someone coming in.

Brrrr, low of 3C (37F) tonight. Turn on that electric mattress pad!

Morning crowds on the pier watching the surfers

Young male and young female pelicans

Lots of pink and 1 yellow starfish on the bottom of the pier pylons

Hoping for handouts

Happy to have his sunglasses back



  1. Isn't it wonderful to know that there are such honest people out there. Glad you got the sunglasses back.
    The photos are beautiful.

    Love this post and the photos! Glad the weather is being good to you.

  3. I find this part of the world to be very honest on the whole. Love living in North America!!

  4. It must have been cosmic consolation for your dreadful Christmas day.

  5. Taking the ticket and using it and then passing it on again sounds just like something we would do!
