Sunset over the bay

available at etsy.com

When we went to San Diego last fall, the weather was beautiful.  Since it was clear

in San Diego, we were excited to drive up the coast to La Jolla and take some sunset

pictures over the ocean.  That didn’t happen.  We learned a new term that day, “marina layer”.

While its sunny inland, the coast is all cloudy, and kind of depressing!  So we went back to

Jim on the observation deck

the city before the sun set, and got some nice pictures overlooking the bay.

Sunset San Diego

available on etsy.com

Last year my husband took a business trip to San Diego.  He wanted me to join him for the weekend

after the meetings.  I kept an eye out for air fare sales and really lucked out when I found  dirt cheap

tickets.  If you are not subscribed to http://www.airfarewatchdog.com, I highly recommend it.  You put

in what cities you want to fly, and they send you emails when regular fares fall.  Neither one of us had

ever been to San Diego, but heard it was beautiful.  One night we went across the bay to Coronado Island.

We timed it so we could catch the reflection of the sunset in the buildings of the city.  Afterwards, we

ate at http://www.ilfornaio.com/.  OMG…the best pasta I ever tasted!  You could tell it was homemade.

I really enjoyed my meal there.  I also recommend that.  If you like the photo I took, you can also see it at

It pays not to sleep in!

My husband is notorious for sleeping in, and taking naps at the drop of a hat.  I am the opposite.  Because I start my work day at 7:30am, I am used to getting up early, and couldn’t sleep in if I wanted to.  This benefitted me when we took a beach vacation to Edisto Beach, SC last September.  The sun didn’t rise until 7, so I was up at least an hour ahead to prepare for my sunrise photos.  The weather was perfect, and the water warm.  I got up four mornings in a row before the sun came up snapping away.   You can see more of these at etsy.com.

Fun with the tripod

Before our trip to the beach, I was looking at professional photographer websites in places like Seaside, FL or Myrtle Beach.  People pay good money to dress up and have professionals take their photos.  We have a tripod and remote release, so I decided we could get those same type of photos ourselves, for free!  We really didn’t have “nice” pictures of the two of us on vacation.  We are in casual clothes since we walk for several hours a day, carrying a bag or camera.  So we dressed up, set up the tripod, and had some fun.  Luckily, no one was around that day to ruin our shots.

A day at the Beach

Jim and I wanted to rent a beach house somewhere where it wasn’t crowded or commercialized.  Going after Labor Day helped, and I had heard about Edisto Beach, SC from a friend.  We got so lucky.  The weather was perfection, not a cloud for 4 days!  I am an early riser, and I got up before dawn every morning with my camera taking photos of the sunrise since we faced east.  After that, I just sat on the deck drinking tea, reading a magazine, and listening to the waves.  The only vacation where we weren’t pounding the pavement trying to get photos of everything!  Please see this and other sunrise photos at Etsy.com
