I would love to be at that beach with the nice umbrella. And a good book...and the I-pod...and maybe with a nice company...
Nice shot!

Love how you included all your themes into one picture.
I would like to be sitting under that umbrella by the beautiful ocean. Ah, what a perfect day to be outside.

Love the photo - my birthday is the 4th, so I'm partial to flags.

Dropping by from Outdoor Wednesday (post #3). If you haven't registered for the glass vessel sink giveaway it's open until 5pm EST Wednesday.

You brought back some very good memories for me. Many years ago we visited the Carlsbad Cravens. It was a nice trip, but I do not feel comfortable underground.

Carolyn Ford said...

I'd definitely would be UNDER the umbrella; I burn so easily...

From a fellow San Diegan and beach resident.... if you took this photo today, you captured the moment perfectly. Cool, overcast and lots of blankets to snuggle up in! Great shot.

Hey! Carlsbad, California??? I LIVE there. Have for 36 years. There's only one other place I'd rather be and you can find out where that is if you visit my blog. What a wonderful area we are blessed to live in!

Ahh - idyllic spot; just the sound of the wind and the waves.

Jingle said...

cute place to be!

Ann said...

They look very relaxed, seems like they have the beach all to themselves, maybe everyone else got out of the way when they saw that umbrella going up.

Grace and Bradley said...

Well composed photo. The man seems so relaxing, I wonder the water must be still cold.

Anna said...

Umbrella is the best U-word! I used it myself!!
Best wishes,
