Mon 12.28.09 – The last Monday of 2009 was an eventful day in Seal Beach, as the early morning high tide was really high and flooded the south end of Seal Beach as well as Seal Way near the pier. My morning walk route with the dogs was a bit interrupted by the water, but the wonder of it all was amazing. Most of the home owners were in good spirits as the water did not come up to their doors, but only to the first step or so.

Sun 12.20.09 – After a heavy work week, I found myself a bit stuffed up this weekend with an attendant sore throat, all the while praying that I not get fully sick. Today, I met up with Julie Wanda at her house so that we could go to lunch. I wanted to take photos of Figaro and Miss Kitty Le Meux, as I was taking the photos of Figaro he kept coming up to my nose and sniffing my nostrils and mouth, then backing up with a look on his face. Yes, Dr. Figaro, I have the beginnings of a cold or something.
After a stop by my brother’s house and my return to home, the sunset came early as we are only one day from the winter solstice. Scruffy and I went on a walk along Seal Way and along the pier. Today it was very warm, 77F / 25C, and the air was so very clear, as I could see the mountains in full detail and Catalina Island in sharp contrast. Three oil supertankers were sitting out on the bay waiting their turn in at the Port of LB/LA, the air was so clear that one could see their names on the sides of the ship even though they were several miles out to sea.
The best of all was the couple who were having their wedding photos taken on the beach on the north side of the Seal Beach pier. A bunch of folks were standing in the parking lot and on the pier taking photos of the sunset, Catalina and the bridal couple. Truly lovely.
Sat 02.07.09 – Plus the nearly full moon rising, as a bonus to today’s amazing turnaround from pouring rain this morning to very gorgeous this afternoon.
Sat. Dec. 6, 2008 – On our way back from the Caribbean Christmas concert at CSULB, my Mom noted that tonight’s sunset would be good. When we got back, we collected Scruffy and walked over to the beach to see the sunset. We walked up to the top of the winter berm and the sunset was amazing!
Thurs 09.11.08 – Best sunrise I ever seen, mind you I try to avoid them, but this had an amazing range of reds.
