Salt Marsh and Sailboats



Here we explored a state park south of Ventura that Joni wanted to check out.  It had very nice camping spots.  It was a much different environment than what I'm used to seeing.



There were beautiful tall grasses waving in the wind,



succulents covering the dune,



and pretty yellow flowers blooming.



And then Joni offered to take a picture of me at the beach!  Proof I was really here.  We sat on the beach and watched the sailboats for awhile.






Ahhhhhh.............so relaxing!

This is a combo post.  It's Scenic Sunday, Today's Flowers AND my 300th post!  Wow.  Not to mention the end of my California trip.  Two weeks of posts from a five day trip that will hopefully carry me through the winter weather that is now setting in at home.

Wow, there is just something about being near water that settles a restless soul. I found your site through "Todays Flowers" and I enjoyed it very much.

Wow Loran, you really did it up right for your 300th post. Congrants. I love that picture of you, and the sailboats, and the grasses, and the dunes and the flowers. What a great trip you had with your sister. Hope this does get you through the winter. Excellent captures all.
