It’s all in the clouds

Picture of the Moment

On April 30, 1993, the weather guy on TV announced that San Diego had not had even a trace of rain for three consecutive months. I thought to myself, “I could live here” even though I had only been here for three days. Yep, I stayed. Never even went back to Texas to sell all my assets. I let two friends (both of them office managers for my Texas businesses) do that for me and then gave them a nice commission. One of them used his commission to get married and the other used his to go on a three-month summer tour of Europe…. I’ll just leave it there.

The only problem with San Diego is that the lack of rain often means the lack of clouds. Too many clouds results in a dull, dreary, overcast day which then results in a dull, dreary, overcast picture. However, I’m not a fan of a completely blue, cloudless sky either. Partly cloudy is what I need!

Recently I was in La Jolla for an ultra low tide and got the best pictures ever in my 22 years here, made that way simply because of the beauty of the exposed ocean bottom coupled with the beauty of the partly cloudy sky.

You saw one of them yesterday. With required moving time increasing very quickly, over the next few days I’ll share some La Jolla pictures from this most recent ultra low tide, probably one each day to cut down on picture processing time and blog post compiling time.

Here is today’s picture:

    We have lovely clouds here in Oregon. My son moved up from LA and loves the clouds. Even on sunny days we have stunning clouds. La Jolla is a beautiful place too. That photo is almost surreal. A slow move sounds just dandy. We moved my daughter this week. I hurt, she hurt, her brother hurt. I never want to move again. Sounds like you had some impressive assets. đŸ™‚
