Storm Clouds at Sunset

Today's rain storm cleared right at sunset, painting the sky with vivid colors and great cloud shapes.
A painter's brush stroke softens the sky.
The sun descends below the clouds . . .
and the caramel cliffs withstand another day of relentless surf.

New Year’s Day Labyrinth

Labyrinth at StoneStepsHow lucky we picked one of my favorite beaches for our low-tide run today. An extremely low tide on New Year’s Day 2011 gave sand artist Kirkos the opportunity to create a meditation labyrinth that was well attended. Indeed, parking was scarce and summer-like crowds milled about.
