We went to Southern California to celebrate our son's birthday.
When asked how he would like to spend the day he suggested a trip to some of the south coast beach cities.
First stop was lunch in Laguna Beach at a restaurant with a great view of surf and sky.
After lunch we went down to the beach where someone was throwing treats for the gulls to catch in the air.
We drove farther north to catch the sunset from Balboa Island in Newport Beach. While waiting for the sun to set we watched the boogie boarders and a child dancing in the fading light.
As the sun went down beneath the sea, two ships passed before it.
As we turned to face the other way, the moon was rising as boats returned to the marina.
It was a good day for sky watching.
See other views of the sky at SkyWatch, Friday; hosted for us by Sandy and Sylvia.
