Water, Water Everywhere (WWE): Pismo Beach

For this WWE challenge, self went searching through her archives, back to last August. She was on the central coast and happened to visit Pismo Beach early, before the morning fog dissipated and the crowds arrived.

Lens-Artists Challenge # 180: Favorite Images of 2021

Thank you to Tina Schell of Travels and Trifles, host of this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge, Favorite Images of 2021.

  • First and foremost, let me begin by wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year. As always, the turn of the calendar page to January 1st brings with it an opportunity to begin anew ā€“ having learned lessons, accomplished some of our goals, or perhaps having simply survived to start a new day. Whatever our thoughts about the year just passed, we once again have a chance to make the new one even better. — Tina Schell

Without further ado, here are self’s favorite images of 2021:

Despite the pandemic, self managed to do quite a lot of things in 2021.

HUH. Who would have thought?

Seems the vaccines do work!

Water, Water Everywhere (WWE) Challenge: Pismo Beach, August 2021

The host of the Water, Water Everywhere Challenge is Jez.

Pismo Beach was the emptiest she’d ever seen it, one day in mid-August.

Pismo Beach is important to self’s emotional life, not just because son attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and was here a lot: because Carlos Bulosan wrote a harrowing story about being a migrant worker here (in the 1940s) and feeling cold and isolated and weary.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Life in Colour: August Photo Challenge

The color this month is RED.

There are some intense reds in host Travel Words’ gallery.

Since self is currently on a road trip to the Central Coast, she decided to take pictures from the places she visited today:

Thai-rrific, 208 Higuera St., San Luis Obispo

Outdoor Mural, Pismo Beach

‘Twas foggy this morning, on Pismo Beach.

None of these reds are truly eye-popping. She took all these pictures today. She’s happy she decided to go to Pismo Beach early, before the crowds.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
