Beach Walk

At low tide, Ventura Pier's knobby knees are uncovered.


Seagulls gather at a tide pool to sift through the sand and wade in the shallow water to search through the debris for morsels that only a seagull would find appetizing.


Since summer season has passed, the lifeguard shacks have been pulled back behind the sand dunes.

Its beautiful in its loneliness

Oh I love a lonely beach. And I like those knobby knees of the pier!

Wish I could have seen the migration of the lifeguard shacks. They seem to congregate in social groups for the winter. Wonder if it's a sort of mating season for them? Do they bring forth baby shacks in the spring? Or perhaps, like some racehorses, they can not reproduce without human assistance.

We miss our lonely beach walks in Ventura. It's great to see your photos.

You conjure the atmosphere of an out of season beach perfectly, I love the image of the hibernating life guard shacks.

Thank you for posting the So Cal version of fall. Even beaches are particulary lovely this time of year, and oh how gorgeous are the sunsets!
