Let's Pretend That There's A Moon

There really still is a moon up above. It's a waning moon, which means the tides have settled down. San Geraldo and I have been back to the beach. Check out the pictures to see what a difference a day (or two) makes. (Click any image.)

SUNDAY:  SAN GERALDO IN THE WATER... TWICE IN ONE MONTH!
THE FIRST STEP IS A DOOZY.


SATURDAY:  'HE' THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ROMANTIC TO DIE ON THE ROCKS.
FORTUNATELY, 'SHE' DID NOT AGREE AND DRAGGED HIM AWAY BEFORE A WAVE HIT. 
MONDAY AFTERNOON:  GONE FISHING.


SATURDAY:  SURF'S UP.
MONDAY EVENING:  SEA OF TRANQUILITY.


SATURDAY:  COULDN'T EVEN GET CLOSE.
MONDAY EVENING:  A NICE PLACE TO SIT.


SATURDAY:  I NAMED THIS GUY TONTÍN,
(THE SPANISH NAME FOR "DOPEY" OF THE SEVEN DWARFS.)
MONDAY EVENING:  NO SIGN OF THE DOPE.


SATURDAY:  ABOUT TO HEAD HOME.
MONDAY:  A MUCH EASIER SWIM (BUT I WALKED).

Time for the musical interlude... So, let's pretend that there's a moon.

  1. I'd never heard that particular Fats Waller song; thanks so much for sharing it! The beauty of your beach never fails to enthrall me... so lovely.

      I find this beach more beautiful than I thought I would (the Costa del Sol doesn't have a great reputation). I love listening to Fats Waller.

      If the weather would stay like this all summer, it would be perfect!

  3. Amazing differences take place almost daily in an ocean and interesting how each extreme attracts different groups of people.......the rougher the better for surfers and 'dopey types!
    Great photos Mitchell and good to see SG in the water!!

      This morning the sea was many shades of gray. It was magical. But I refused to get out of bed to take pictures.

  4. The sea has many moods. Best to catch her when she's playing nice.

      The waves were coming in diagonally earlier today. Never a dull moment.

  5. That beach/sea really is marvelous. Just beautiful! What have the temps been lately? So glad that San Geraldo has been enjoying it, too!

      High 70sF has been the norm lately. Glorious weather. (Well except for San Geraldo's variable cyclonic winds and this morning's downpour... which I STILL find glorious).

  6. I don't think I would ever be bored looking at the ever-changing moods of the sea.

      Most days, I completely zone out at some point. Dudo and Moose are the same way. It must be quite a sight when the three of us are lined up at a window or on the terrace.

  7. That must have taken some precise planning or a GPS to get those photos from the exact angle and point of view. Excellent photography. (I'm not going to say how much I envy your being by the ocean.)

      I had my smart phone with me. So, I brought up the previous post to see what I wanted to compare. (Given that, you'd think I would have done better!) For me, nothing could be better than this view and the sound of the sea.

  8. For some reason I've got Dinah Washington singing 'What A Difference A Day Makes' in my head!

    I'm also thinking Tontin has slipped through the Strait of Gibraltar by now.

      She's been singing in my head, too. But I remembered that I used that video (and title) in a blog post right after we got the cats. (http://mitchellismoving.blogspot.com.es/2012/05/what-difference-day-makes.html) Of course, no one else would have cared (or even noticed) if I had used it again!

  9. The sea is so fascinating, so changing. I would never tire of looking at it if I lived there.

  11. Hi, Mitchell.
    I'm here thanks to the lovely Jacqueline.
    I live nowhere near the beach now, so thank you for bringing it to me. I missed it. I'm a native Californian whose familiar with several of the places you've called home: Marina Del Rey, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, San Diego...
    Cheers!

      Thanks so much for visiting. I think I've got a bit of a crush on Jacqueline (and the Great Scot... and the Kidling). I see you're now in Chico. So near to and yet so far from the beach. I look forward to reading your blog!
