Frivolous Friday! Beach Adventure: Crashing Waves!

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

With all the High Surf advisories posted earlier in the week, you KNOW I had to grab my camera and go check it out.

We didn’t have a lot of time so we zipped over to Torrey Pines State Beach and discovered



We heard there had been a water main break up the hill – and it sure did leave a MESS!

So we flipped a U-Turn and parked closer to the freeway and walked past all the clean up- and it didn’t take long to see the waves!

(Have you ever seen large waves and deep water on the wetlands (east) side of Torrey Pines Road???

The waves were breaking on the sidewalk on the east side of the street!

We were about an hour later than the highest tide – but we could see the seaweed, sand and rocks the waves had deposited….

**this is the outdoor shower area Yikes!

Oh MY it was fabulous to witness the high surf and crashing waves!

The entire “beach” was underwater with waves crashing against the boulders.

And as you can see, there was absolutely no sand anywhere – it had all washed away and was only stones.


I wasn’t the only person happy to be there….

I have to share a little video so you can experience it.  If you turn up the volume, in the second part of the video you can hear all the rocks on the beach tumbling and crackling together as the waves roll back out.

It was LOUD


Yep, this happened #2:

Well after all that fresh air, we needed a snack so we headed over to “Elixer Juice & Food” in Del Mar.

First of all, can I ask where has dragon fruit been all my life?

I don’t think I’d even HEARD OF it until two or three years ago and now it’s everywhere and I can’t get enough.

So I definitely had to order the DRAGON BOWL !

This masterpiece of yumminess has

Orange Juice | Dragon Fruit | Mango | Pineapple | Banana |
: Granola + Banana + Strawberry + Cashews + Goji Berry + Coconut + Honey

If someone made me one of these everyday I would be SO HAPPY and I think I would be healthier too!

(Right?  Healthy calories don’t count the same as unhealthy calories do they?)

What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!

And do you know what else I’m blessed by?     Capturing amazing moments for you to treasure for a lifetime!
