Supergirl Pro Surfing Contest in Oceanside, CA


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These are some images from Saturday’s of the Supergirl Pro Surfing Competition.  The top 60 women of surfing competed in a 3 day event, held at the Oceanside Pier in the most northern part of San Diego, California. I don’t usually take too many surf pictures, but I had great fun attending and snapping some pictures. These girls are awesome and  Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack back in 2003 is always a crowd favorite. She is an inspiration to many and when she is not on a surfboard, she speaks at various events. In my next slideshow, I will feature some more surf action shots from Sunday’s quarter finals, the semi’s and the finals.

San Diego Skyline 2013


Taken from across the bay on Coronado Island

A view of Downtown San Diego from Coronado Island

I took this picture during lunch time while I was in Coronado. The area from which I took this picture is called Glorietta Bay. It has some shopping, hotels and restaurants, which attracts many tourist and San Diegans alike. Coronado also known for its Naval history and the Hotel Del Coronado among some beautiful beaches.

 

The famous Coronado Bridge allows people to drive to and from Coronado and is a landmark of sorts in San Diego. There is also a Ferry that arrives every 30 minutes taking people across the bay from either side. In this view, Seaport Village, another tourist attraction with its many stores and boutiques.

The Convention Center is right next to Seaport Village and host conventions like the San Diego Auto Show and Comic Con. San Diego has much to offer and this is just a small glimpse of what San Diego has to offer.

Cardiff by the Sea, CA

Beach lovers walking along the shore in Cardiff by the Sea. It was a very pleasant evening and people enjoyed the 72 degrees weather at Sunset time. Lot’s of surfers riding the waves and dogs playing at the beach.

I just love these kind of evenings, comfortable temperature and being able for just a moment to escape the everyday routine and noise of the city.

I love the feeling of the sand on my feet or the refreshing feeling of the water washing it away. It’s almost like a cleansing feeling. I am truly blessed and grateful to live by the ocean and so close to the beach in a city that many people spend thousands on, just to visit for a few days.

All is peachy in Pacific Beach


I drove down to Mission Beach, taking some pictures of the historical Roller Coaster there and ended up in Pacific Beach towards the evening. I was trying to get some Sunset shots. I’ve been to the place before and I had some good memories. So I figure why not. To capture the sunset at this time of year, I had to go down a stair case and make a right along the cliff.

The beach is not sandy at all,  in fact there is nothing but rocks of various sizes all over the place.  I stumbled around on top of the rocks and slipped several times, hoping nobody was watching me as I tried to get to the spot I had been previously  and got some decent shots. Finally, I  got to my destination and what you’d  know, not a cloud in sight and the sun was just about 5 minutes away from disappearing below the horizon.
I noticed a few bumps and scratches on my leg and some blood on my big toe and figured, well, maybe I should head back to the stair case. On my way back, about half way down, I met a young man sitting on the rocks watching the sunset. We conversed for a little while and he told me that this area used to be a gunnery during World War II. I was wondering about all the concrete and other man-made objects that are scattered all over at that spot. After the war ended, the Government tore the whole thing down, thus so many remnants of the former gunnery.
Well, I made it safely back to the stairs and  set up my camera to get at least a couple of shot for the night. Here is the one of the shots I got, a view towards Pacific Beach and the Crystal Pier. It was a pretty nice evening after all. I met some people at the place I was taking the picture and we had a pleasant conversation.
That is another reason I love to go out and take pictures, the scenery, the fresh air and the people who I meet on my outings. Always fascinating and exiting to talk to people and have some fun. Reminds of a time when things were like that, when people still had the time to say hi and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.

The Bench


“The Bench”

I was here, but you did not sit down to rest. I was here, but you were too busy with the world. I will be here tomorrow and the next day. Take some time, rest and sit down. Enjoy the view and find peace in your heart. God’s presence is everywhere, just relax and sit down for a moment and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

This is the Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial site in San Diego. The Cross has been under attack for many years by some local Atheist, but it is still standing and the American Flag is proudly waving in the wind.

A moment of Peace

After a hectic day yesterday, it was nice to walk down the beach and sit down at the cliff and watch the beauty of God and meditate on Him and find peace.

The owner of this surfboard was surely happy that I was at that spot today. He came up to we and ask if I had seen a camera that he lost while surfing. I knew he was talking about a GoPro camera. I said, sorry I have not, but I will keep my eyes open. I took this picture of his surfboard while he was anxiously looking for his camera in the waves. About a minute after this shot, the GoPro came floating down my way. I picked it up, called him and he came running to the shore. He was a tourist from Ireland on his last day here in San Diego. He was a happy man when I handed him his camera. 64GB of vacation footage. I think God had me there today for that reason, normally I walk up a little bit further north. At least he is leaving Solana Beach with happy memories. God is Good.
