Time to get going again.  As we leave Corona Del Mar, we pass through an area of Newport Beach called Pelican Point.  Located high above the Pacific, you can literally see forever as you breeze down PCH.  Passing through this protected area, it’s quite common to witness dozens of pelicans gliding closely overhead.  As we continue down the Pacific Coast Highway, we come upon Crystal Cove.  Be sure to make a stop at The Shake Shack, where you’ll find the most delicious milk shakes to enjoy while gazing over the vastness of the Pacific Ocean.

Mmmmm…that was a great shake.  Butterfinger was my choice of the day!

Next stop, Laguna Beach!  This has to be one of my favorite places to go.  For one thing, there are photography opportunities everywhere!  But, it’s also a mecca for artists!  I have never seen so many galleries in one location, with many local artists available for conversation and advice.  

This shot was captured from Heisler Park overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  I’ve shot several sunsets from here, both from the cliffs overlooking the ocean and from the rocky beaches below.  If you look carefully, on this day you could see Catalina Island in the distance.

That’s it for today.  Next time we’ll journey a little further down the coast to the Dana Point area.  I’ll see you then.

  1. I love your coastal photographs, being so far from the west coast. What a wonderful place it must be for photographers.

    I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blog Award. Please read about it here:
