The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Ebb Tide

"Nothing is wrong with California that a rise in ocean level wouldn't cure." - Ross MacDonald
(I couldn't resist that one)
I became fascinated by the ebb tide.  

The white foam edge along the grey sand.

Okay, I got a little bit carried away with it.

Fortunately the tide didn't carry me away.


  1. A detail from a common sight. It stays impressive.

  2. neat pics John ... the ocean is quite mesmerizing watching all it's emotions (and motions...)

  3. Many people take a walk along the beach to get some relief or to sort out their thoughts. To look at the tides creates peace.

  5. the quote was too funny. :) as are you.

  6. I love to walk along the edge of the sea too. My father always used to say that there was nothing wrong with me that a good bang on the head wouldn't cure!

  7. I like this series of photos, John. I can almost imagine it in motion.

  8. What beach is this? I like the pebble beach.

  9. That's a great quote! Something kind of magical about sea foam on the sand. Nice photos!
