Coastal Dreams

I could live on the coast here in California.  Unfortunately the price to live on the coast is cost-prohibitive not to mention some of the most beautiful places have no housing.  Thank goodness!  At least there is some place you can go without development.   Oh and not to mention how expensive it is when you do see homes on the coast.  Living in California is expensive period!

But honestly, sometimes it’s nice to keep things a dream because they will never be taken for granted.  I will always see the coast here as mesmerizing, ever-changing in color and mood, and inspiring.

Life at the Cove is Very Fishy! (1 image + 3 image gallery)

Back at Shark Fin Cove again, I thought you might enjoy seeing this rock arch down at the bottom of Shark Cove.  When you stand on the beach you can look through this arch and see the wild winter waves of the Pacific.  The water was coming through this arch frequently so I zoomed in.  The last thing I needed was to be dragged out to sea, and trust me, that happens here on the coast a lot, especially with tourists.  There are rogue waves that come up unexpectedly so if you’re traveling to this area, please don’t taunt Mother Nature!  Okay enough warnings and onto more life at the cove….

When we are atop of Shark Fin Cove, Dave and I were walking around admiring the incredible beauty when we saw two men fishing. They had the longest fishing line we’d ever seen!  If you can imagine, they were standing at the top as you can see in the pictures here and dropping their fishing line all the way down to the ocean!  On the last picture, which is very cropped and zoomed because of my distance to him, you can see that he’s bringing up a fish!  The fish actually ended up dropping off the line because his line broke.  I wonder if he ever got a fish up because with that jagged rock, it would easily cut a line.
