O is for Oceanfront View on ABC Wednesday

View from the Hotel Del Coronado


View from La Jolla Cove


View from Waikiki Beach


View from our hotel room in Penang


I love the ocean. The relaxing sounds of the waves, the soft breezes, the cool & wet sand below my feet, the cries of the seagulls, and sun beating above. In my younger days, I would take annual trips to the beach and just enjoy the afternoon there with my book.

The hotel Coronado....very nice place...but a very long bridge to get to it!! Nice ABC Wed!

Olivier said...

Olivier, Happy Halloween Ă  vous! Merci pour s'arrĂȘter par mon blog. (I hope that is the correct translation.)

Neva, I didn't have a car so I took public transportation to Coronado that looks like a cable car with the windows open. It was quite refreshing with all that wind in my face.

You have really done some traveling and your ocean pictures are just beautiful! I love the clouds in that first one.

Oh the ocean. I too am a big fan of the sea and make sure I visit regularly with Wilma.

Lovely post.

kml said...

I love the ocean too - you had quite a view in Penang! Great photos!

Great shots - great 'O'. I have the sea in my blood and could never live far from it. Love that sky, I could watch it for an age.

I want to go to Hawaii so bad. Thanks for posting a picture of Diamond Head, it is my favorite mountain.

Kate Isis said...

My favourite is the rocks at la jolla. Its a kind of brooding photo.

Mike said...

It looks a lovely place. Now I feel like taking some time off work for a holiday.

Um... WOW... I want to be holidaying there. *pouts* makes Sydney look like child's play.

I have to say I especially like the first photo of the clouds, a lovely contrast and detail.

Thanks Ackworth for dropping by.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Dot, I agree that random clouds such as those are certainly interesting. It's hard to catch a bad day in San Diego.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Denise, I agree that the ocean really draws me in more than deserts, mountains, or meadows.

AVCR8TEUR said...

kml, the Penang picture was taken in 2002. Definitely a lovely part of the island.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Walksfarwoman, I would love to live by the ocean, but it's too expensive. And, there's the cold and fog one has to deal with, at least from the California coast.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Digital Flower Pics, the best time to go to Hawaii is between Sept. thru Nov. when it's the least expensive.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Mike, anytime is a good time for oceanfront vacation.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Stuart, I would think Sydney would have beautiful beaches? One of these days, I'll go to AU, but, celebrating Christmas in the summer feels strange to us northern hemisphere people. :)

Very nice views.

Thanks,

Thanks Oswegan for your comments.

Lynette said...

The ABC Wednesday photos are fantastic, so clear and alluring. Thanks!

AVCR8TEUR said...

Thanks Lynette. We share the same ocean. Your Columbia River is quite breathtaking too.
