Carol Bogovich captured this beautiful wave seen off the Mendonoma coast.
I wish I had a video of this wave to show you! I love the turquoise color of the wave against the oh-so-blue of the Pacific Ocean.
Another favorite wave photo was taken by Jerry Anon at Anchor Bay Beach. The setting sun makes this wave look like glass.
Thanks to Carol and Jerry for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
Wendy Baily saw this big, male Elephant Seal haul out onto the boat ramp at Anchor Bay Beach. He promptly feel asleep.
A couple of men decided to go over and chase him off. But when they got close and saw how big he was, they changed their minds - good decision! Anyway, he looks so peaceful and relaxed so why disturb his rest?
Thanks to Wendy for allowing me to share this fun photo with you here.
Today fog is draped over the ocean, but it's sunny and warm when you are away from the fog. 77 degrees this afternoon at my house in Anchor Bay. Spring in winter!
On November 15th, the sunset painted the sky in the most beautiful colors. It simply took our breath away to see it. Several coast photographers kindly sent me their photos of the event. Wendy Bailey took her photo at Anchor Bay Beach.
Paul Brewer captured the view looking south from Gualala.
And Janet Kukulinsky also caught magic.
We have many beautiful sunsets here on the Mendonoma coast, but this one was pretty darn spectacular.
Thanks to Wendy, Paul and Janet for allowing me to share their photos with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is the link to his website: http://www.capturingnatureswonders.com/
Marcelia Fosse caught this surfer in a moment of joy as he heads to the waves off Anchor Bay Beach.
It's shows the joy of anticipation, doesn't it? Below is a photo taken by Eric Anderson several years ago of a surfer catching a wave off Anchor Bay Beach.
Thanks to Marcelia and Eric for allowing me to share their photos with you here. We are having a lovely day on the Mendonoma Coast today, with sunshine and drifting clouds.
Donna Woodbury and her friend, Heidi Endemann, recently took a walk on Anchor Bay Beach with their dogs. Jerry Anon captured this lovely photo.
Any day is a great day to take a walk at sunset!
Thanks to Jerry for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
