As our summer days come to an end and autumn promises cloudy, cool – and damp – days in the Pacific Northwest, we start daydreaming about sun and sand. Beaches beacon. Memories of some of our favorite beaches are the topic of today’s post.
Malaga, Spain’s Costa del Sol: A Sunday morning stroll last November on the beach included a stop to inspect this new-to-us way of fishing. Tall poles were inserted in the sand and the line (barely glimmering in the sunlight) stretched out into the sea – so high you could walk under them.
Ko Olina, O’ahu, Hawaii: We’ve spent the month of January ‘living’ at Ko Olina the last couple of years thanks to taking a plunge into the ‘timeshare’ world. This is one of our favorite spots at this development on O’ahu’s western shores, some 30 minutes from Honolulu.
Copalis Beach, Washington State: Now you might think this photo, taken last March, is of a cloudy beach, but in this part of the world we have ourselves believing this is ‘filtered sun’.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico: A Carnival Cruise stop introduced us to the beauty of the beaches in this part of Mexico last April.
Riviera Nayarit, Mexico: As much as we enjoyed our quick visit to Cabo, it was the week spent at Rancho Banderas, just north of Puerto Vallarta where our place overlooked this beautiful – and little used – beach.
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada: While images of beaches may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of this city on the tip of Vancouver Island, all you need do is walk a view blocks from the Inner Harbor and you’ll find them. Well-maintained trails lead from the roadway overlooking them to the cove beaches below.
How about you? Has life been a beach this year?
