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.
Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.
