Pebble Beach ...

No, not the "golfing" Pebble Beach.. .just a small unassuming rocky cove that I discovered yesterday at Bean Hollow State Park.     What a find though - just off Hwy 1, about 17 miles south of Half Moon Bay!





 Deep with sea washed, tumbled pebbles - so polished that they resemble gemstones; all colors of jade and agates!  These pretty little stones have been tossed in this cove for thousands of years and are smooth to the touch, you can even walk through them in bare feet.  I sat here for over an hour sifting through the colors, finding tiny sea shells and one piece of amber sea glass. My friend Patti would know instantly what each stone was but, alas I can only recognize the agates....

Wow.... could not have asked for a more perfect September afternoon.  I am pretty lucky that I am able to  "skip school" once in awhile.

Oh, Caron. You draw us in with your seductive beach photos and cause us to become discontent with our surroundings ... except me, of course! No crashing breakers, just gently lapping waves, seabirds and the scent of fall in the air.

So happy to find your blog today. We visited the Calif. coast for the first time this summer, which took us from Santa Cruz to Big Sur.
So much natural inspiration there. We came home with a big collection of seaglass that I will always treasure.

Such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. I don't blame you for playing hookey.

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
