A perfect last day of summer in Huntington Beach

I signed up for a 5k race in Huntington Beach last year. Race day finally came. This year.

It’s been a long and busy summer and I just wasn’t in the mood for running a race. Well, you already know the ending of this story: I ran the race, loved it, and signed up for next year’s race already…

And then I got to relax.

And walk on the beach, read a book, take photos, and eat ice-cream. The weather was perfect for a day (or weekend) on the beach. sunny, not too hot, some clouds, not too many.

Early morning the beach was deserted and peaceful. Perfect for a long walk with just my phone camera.

The lifeguards hadn’t started their day yet.

The surfers hung out on the north side of Huntington Beach Pier.

No one fought for a photo spot underneath the pier (yet).

I love the bustling of a summer beach. Children running into the waves, full of laughter. Lovers taking a romantic sunset walk. Early morning runners enjoying the views of the ocean. But I can’t deny that I also truly enjoyed this last day of summer a bit quieter and at a slower pace.

    Welcome to All Seasons! You’re an early morning person. That’s going to be interesting, because most of the participants of All Seasons live in another part of the world! I know this beach and pier, because of 3 decades I lived in one of another suburb of L.A. and close to Orange County.Great images from your phone! My favorite is the one of the pillars underneath the pier. A picture of great Californian beach living! Can’t wait till your post next week!
