Dreaming


Swami's Beach, Encinitas, CA

Swami’s Beach, Encinitas, CA

I felt like I was dreaming this evening. Dreaming about a place where there is peace and happiness, love and not hate. A place where there is no pain and suffering.

In my dream, I was in a perfect world, in a world they way it was meant to be when God first created it.

Unfortunately, I had to go back into reality, into a world of violence, chaos and wars. Is this not something that everyone wants, a world where we can all live together without hate and violence?

Peace and Love has been pursued by mankind, but was never achieved.

The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life has kept us from living together in Harmony. That is not of God and we as fallen sinful man will never achieve what so many have tried and dreamed of; everlasting Peace.

Only Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World will bring everlasting peace, when He returns as King of kings and Lord of lords. Maranatha Lord Jesus.

“For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–is not of the Father but is of the world.”  1 John 2:16

Paradise Island


Swami's Beach in Encinitas, California

Swami’s Beach in Encinitas, California

It was another beautiful Sunset at Swami’s Beach. It was low tide at the time I took this shot. This is one of my favorite places along the San Diego Coastline. Swami’s is in Encinitas, CA which is in the North County of San Diego. It’s a laid back place and is not over crowded as some beaches. Truly as close to Paradise as one can get. http://sandiegovipsevents.wordpress.com/2013/07/17/top-surfing-spots-in-san-diego/

After many days of overcast along the San Diego Coastline, the weather finally changed into a more summer like climate. This picture was taken about 20 minutes after the sunset with a long shutter exposure.

A beautiful sunset at Windansea Beach, just north of La Jolla, CA. It’s one of my favorite spots in San Diego. The beaches around Windansea are not so crowded as other beaches around San Diego.

Hotel Del Coronado


The Del on Coronado Island, San Diego, CA

The famous Hotel on Coronado Island

The famous Del opened in February 1888 and was declared a Historic Landmark in 1977. The Hotel was also the first with electricity, thanks to Thomas Edison.

Hollywood also used the Hotel in the movie “Some like it hot” with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. The Del Coronado has a very interesting and rich history. A must see when in San Diego.

There are two ways to visit Coronado Island. There is the Ferry that leaves from the Harbor in Downtown San Diego, or with the car, driving across the famous Coronado Bridge which was finished in 1969. People used to pay a fee when crossing the bridge. I can’t remember how much it was, either 50 or 75 cents. It may have been as much as a Dollar. The money was collected to pay for the bridge. Coronado is a beautiful place and has much to offer.

This area is called Windansea Beach, which is south of La Jolla, CA. known for its awesome surf  and beautiful stretches of pristine beaches and clear turquoise looking water.  A must go to place when visiting San Diego.

Supergirl Pro Contest Surf Action Pictures


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These are some images from Sunday’s quarter finals, the semis and the final. The winner of the Supergirl Pro Surfing Contest was Malia Manuel from Hawaii. Second place went to Paige Hareb from New Zealand. There are a couple of other girls in this slide show, but I don’t know their names. The waves changed during the day, there were times with some real nice sets and other times when almost nothing happened. Nevertheless, the girls made the best of it. Overall it was great competition weekend.

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.

Dancing


Cardiff by the Sea

Cardiff by the Sea

This little girls was dancing at Sunset time in Cardiff by the Sea. I thought of the very last Psalm:

Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament!

Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!

Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp!

Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!

Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals!

Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD! Psalm 150.

Friends

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.

The American Flag and the Cross on top of Mt. Soledad

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.
