• Thanks, Jeannine, so very much! You brought me back here, what with all your encouraging words. (xoxo) It’s been a bit of a challenge to gather my momentum again, but ohhh, I know already that it’ll be totally worth it! A lot of throat clearing…a few false starts…but hey, here we go!

  1. So nice to see photos like this on such a white day here! Love egrets, too. 🙂 I’m glad you had a fun time birthday-celebrating, and that you have such a wonderful husband!

    • Thanks, Rose! I’m lucky in love, and I know it. 🙂

      Glad the pictures helped brighten your day as much as they did mine. It’s always fun to see your part of the world, too.

  2. Beautiful pictures! Glad you and your “birthday ninja” had blue skies. I was down in Carlsbad on Saturday, along PCH, but it took a while for the fog to lift enough to actually see the ocean. 🙂

    • Carlsbad is so pretty, especially when the flower fields are blooming. Don’t you just love that stretch of PCH where the sparkly blue ocean comes into view? Even on a foggy day, it’s beautiful.

      • Yes, although there was a “white blanket” over it on the 26th. :>) Finally caught a glimpse of the shoreline later in the afternoon.

        I haven’t been to the Flower Fields yet. I went to the Museum of Making Music to see a saxophone exhibit, then to Village Kitchen and Pie Shoppe for lunch (and to try the pie I’d been hearing about). :>)

        • Oh hey, there’s a Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad?? I’m going to put that on my Field Trip list!

          As for the Flower Fields, Christine, you have no idea what you’re missing. Acres upon acres of colored ribbons, ranunculus in every hue. Please treat yourself this year. xo

  3. I love that you found a friend with a similar background! I think that’s one of the true blessings of the Internet ♥

    like a guiding hand at the small of your back–that is lovely.

    The birds’ windblown plumage in these photos makes me feel the sea breeze, and I love those tall masts! Thanks for sharing.

    • I loved the windblown egret. Talk about ruffled feathers! 😉

      Thanks for coming by to comment. I feel like a bad friend for going AWOL. Please forgive me. I’m trying to balance my writing time against my cravings for human contact. Not doing a very good job of that, but I’ll try harder.

  4. Happy birthday to your fella, Melodye! I’m so glad you found each other. And I’m grateful you shared these gorgeous pics. I also saw a Snowy Egret on the pier in Oceanside!

    (It’s cold and windy here today and it’s nice to lose myself in the promise of blue skies and poppies.)

    • I love that Snowy Egret! She (he?) looks elegant, despite those windblown feathers. Cool that you saw one, too, while you were down here! Have to admit, I like the seagull, too. She looks like a daydreamer. 🙂


  5. I’m basking in your photos and post, dear Melodye. I’m so glad you’re feeling drawn to breathe new life into your blog. That breath is filling not only your blog, but all of LJ with your beautiful heart. xoxo

    • Oh, Lorraine, how is it that you always say the words I need to hear? Thing is, I miss blogging (my LJ friends) so very much. I just lose track of time, what with my writing and all, and before I know it, the day is done. But I crave the companionship here, for countless reasons, so I’m trying to figure out a better balance between putting my nose to the groundstone & hanging out here.

  6. Happy birthday to your husband!

    Beautiful photos! I Googled Balboa Peninsula to find out where it was. You’re lucky to have so much beauty right on your doorstep.

    • Re: Happy birthday to your husband!

      We are, indeed. I don’t lose sight of that for a single day. It’s not for everyone, I know, but I feel as if I’m living in Paradise.
