Christmas in La Jolla

With a warm, Santa Ana wind coming through and bright, sunny days, Christmas seems to be about what is always is here, gorgeous. Coming here from cold, gray Paris makes all sense of holidays disappear and interest in sunbathing takes over! There have been super low tides hitting around 3pm making for extended walks on the beach. I never remember seeing star fish like this in tide pools growing up, so I was totally excited about that. The rocks, many unacustomed to being so revealed with the low tides, look like mummified seals or some prehistoric beast. Huge amounts of mussles and clams and sea anenomies were covering the tide pools as well. I went crazy with the camera and here is a taste of LJ in winter...
