January

It's arrived and bringing much needed rain.   The El Nino we've been hearing about for months and months is now dropping buckets of rain on our parched state.   And snow in the Sierra which is critical to filling our reservoirs.   I will probably be home most of today, hunkered down and watching the rain fall most of the day.   Yesterday I drove to the coast which is awesome when it's storming.   The pier in Cayucos has been rebuilt and is now open again.   Standing out on a pier gives a much different view of the ocean, the waves, the look back toward shore.   There were several people fishing off the pier, something I'm sure they missed while it was shut down.   New benches, plaques with names of those who donated to the repairs.   A pier is such a part of a community.   It's like a boardwalk where people just stroll and talk or stay silent in their own thoughts.   And watch the ocean.





The storm is supposed to bring up to 25 foot waves.   I'll wait for a break in the heavy rains and head over again to watch in awe.   And take photos.

Welcome January!

Turbulent ocean waters. Even on a rebuilt pier I would feel a bit nervous standing on it in those waves. Very pretty though.

Awesome shots Denise! So, so so happy to hear about your rain, and especially the snow! We too, are getting our share of both this year. I just love that beautiful pier!! And I absolutely love being at the beach when it's storming. Always makes me feel humble and small.
