God I love sunsets!

If I can catch a boat in  the photo it is even more gorgeous to view.

I never get tired of sunsets

Life’s a Beach ~ Playa Posada New Year’s Day 2009

I decided to spend New Year’s Day at the Posada Beach. My knee was aching pretty badly and I wanted to be able to easily get in to the water and not have to walk so far on the beach. Denise was going to spend the day at Jax along with some other friends watching college football so I headed to the beach early and found my spot for the day.

The day started out with just me and these lonely beach chairs.

By early afternoon there were tons of Mexican Nationals on the beach. Huge families all enjoying the beach, the water, eating and drinking. I was actually one of the very few gringos on that stretch of beach that day. This is a great beach spot to see all of the boats coming and going from the docks and marinas.

I went across the street to Penguinos for a late late and took these photos from there.

How can she wear all of that? I was roasting in my bathing suit.

Lots of kids playing on the beach and in the water.

Gorgeous sunset from Milwaukie, OR this evening

I was driving to the store about 4:30 and saw this sky so I pulled over to take some photos with my MotoQ Smartphone. Dang! Why didn’t I have my real camera with me?

Then this was what I saw when I walked out of the store about 10 minutes later. There were several other people in the parking lot taking photos with their cell phones.
