Yesterday afternoon, we joined so many people on the beach to enjoy the beginning of this magnificent sunset  The clouds came in over the ocean to lend nature a hand in creating a different spectacle for us to enjoy.   The other side of the sky, over land and mountains was clear creating a muted and bright lighting simultaneously! Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday, and may your favorite football team win, if you are fan!  If not, enjoy your Sunday in your special way!

It has been a lovely week, and today as we took our walk on Sandyland beach in Carpinteria, it seemed everyone was taking a picture of the sun sinking in the ocean as the week ended...we took several, and here is our favorite of them all.  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, whatever, your plans may be.

We are always discovering something new and unexpected at the beach.  We were looking for limpets to photograph to illustrate our Monday post on Sunday.  We did find them by looking up at the exposed reefs at low tide.   And then, we looked down at this beauty, this sea grass so beautifully placed on the sand by the waves! Happy Wednesday,  Cheers Ron & Alexandra Seigel

Ron and I see this egret practically every time we pass this point on Carpinteria's Sandyland Beach, where he knows the fish are biting.  At first, he kept a wary eye on us, and now he is very accepting, and does not mind if we are close to him (4-5 feet).  Sometimes another egret joins him, and most of the time he is there by himself, enjoying the food and surf. Wishing you all a great Sunday.

These past two weeks our beaches hosted visitors from all over the country.  We enjoyed seeing their bravery as they jumped in to our cold waters (60), sunbathed, and collected shells.  As you can see from this shot, it is just the locals now.

We all have our routines, and every so often we do the exact opposite.  On this particular day, we walked the Carpinteria State Beach (a state park), instead of Sandyland Beach (our usual walk).   It was an absolutely picture perfect day, and we enjoyed a new perspective. We headed towards the sea rookery (which is not accessible by foot, because the seals are having their pups, and they are protected from predators and people).   On our way back, we took this shot.  You can see the Channel Islands and the oil derricks in the distance, if you magnify the picture.

We came upon this wonderful development built by budding young architects.  They even included a waterway for the yacht slips with easy access.  The sand drip style of castle homes is sustainable and eco friendly.  There is always more sand available to expand or repair with. This is the largest of its kind recorded on Sandyland Beach in Carpinteria. It was so much fun to see so many people at the beach on a winter day.  By Californians standards it was not warm enough to swim without a wet suit, however, many of our Eastern visitors, disagreed and plunged right in.  (The temperature was 68 F, and the water was 60F).  Everyone was smiling, laughing and playing, and yes, lots of dogs were arround to add to the merriment!     Wishing you a delightful Sunday, Cheers, Ron & Alexandra

Anemones are a fascinating underwater sea creature, and we find them during low tide attached to the reef by their foot.  This creature is related to the coral and jellyfish.  Like their cousins they have tentacles which respond to the slightest touch and send a sting into their prey paralyzing them and guiding them into their mouth.  There are over a 1000 species of anemone and they can be found in every color of the rainbow.  The one pictured in the first photo is mint green, whereas in this picture, they are irridescent blue and some actually look like fine opals, aquamarines, or saphires. Carpinteria state beach is the locale of over a mile of tidepools. It is part of the California State Parks system.  By state law these creatures are protected.  At low tides volunteers are there t...

It was cold, and  windy and we walked at a brisk pace yesterday afternoon. We were among the few with those who were walking their dogs, and the athletes who run on the sand. The first signs of winter have materialized on Sandyland Beach in Carpinteria.   Because of the winter high tides, the building of the berms have begun.  They are built so high that you can only see the second story of these homes.  During the winter season, the tractor will be here early in the morning to reinforce the wall.

Ron and I love picking up these shells on Sandyland Beach in Carpinteria.  They look like butterflies in the sand. Both sides are still attached, which means these were opened recently by the various birds.  Sandpipers and the curlews dig in the sand for them.  The colors are varied, and we are always delighted to see a new variation. Do you think they look like butterflies?

Cooler days thin out the Sandyland beach in Carpinteria even on a gorgeous sunny holiday.  We love joining the hearty locals walking their dogs and the fishermen who were having a great day, catching perch. We noticed this black tern (sea duck) taking a step towards the water. He waited for the wave to roll in so he did not have to work so hard.  Now, it was obvious to me, what it means to be like a duck in water.  You just wait for the wave to take you on in.  We think there is inherent wisdom in that!

This home with its distinct Moorish inspired architecture on Sandyland Beach in  was built as a compound for a large family, one of the locals told us.  Now it has been subdivided into condos, and the last one that was for sale was listed at $7 million.  What a lovely spot to view the world from.  Wishing you all a delightful Veteran's Day.

We are always fascinated by Nature's arrangements of what the ocean sends to the beach.  This this the root ball of a kelp plant.  What is unusual about it is that is has nothing attached to it.   Usually there is rock that the kelp embeds itself into.  The root ball is pristine, except for little sprig of coral (the golden green plant), and then are some long blades of sea grass.  Wishing you all a great week.   Written by Ron & Alexandra Seigel- -WATCH VIDEOS-  Buzz-Worthy Luxury Real Estate Websites   Personal Branding Case Studies   Company Branding Case Studies   About Language of Luxury  - JOIN THE LOL COMMUNTIY -   GET FLUENT.

On our way home today, we stopped at Westerlay Orchids to explore what is new to orchid world, and bring some home to replace our faded ones.  We saw a lot of new varieties, as well as some of the usual beauties.   Wishing all of you a great weekend.   Cheers, Ron and Alexandra Seigel Written by Ron & Alexandra Seigel- -WATCH VIDEOS-  Buzz-Worthy Luxury Real Estate Websites   Personal Branding Case Studies   Company Branding Case Studies   About Language of Luxury  - JOIN THE LOL COMMUNTIY -   GET FLUENT.

When we arrived at the beach in Sandyland, Carpinteria, this afternoon, there was a feeding frenzy of bird circling an area of kelp.  All of a sudden, we spotted a dolphin, and then a succession of them.  Everyone on the beach were just as mesmerized as we were watching nature at feeding time. Further down another group of birds were squealing and dive bombing, and sure enough more dolphins.  Ron took a video that he will edit later this weekend, and share.  We saw so many dolphins as we walked along.  it was a magnificent moment. In the meantime here is a shot of one coming out of the fish rich waters.  Have a great weekend, Cheers, Ron & Alexandra   Written by Ron & Alexandra Seigel- -WATCH VIDEOS-  Buzz-Worthy Luxury Real Estate Websites   Personal Branding Case Studies   Company Br...

We encountered this gym class at the Sandyland beach, in Carpinteria, yesterday, afternoon.  These high school girls were taking a paddle board and kayak class.  For a moment I wished we had those type of classes in my high school in Minnesota.   The dolphins were out in great numbers yesterday, and we noticed that when the girls were out in a group on their paddle boards, the dolphins joined them.   On our way back, these young ladies where kayaking.  The dolphins rejoined them.  It was fun to see them at play even from a distance as they were cavorting and enjoying this amazing weather we have been blessed with. And this afternoon, we will be back to see what is new at the beach. Written by Ron & Alexandra Seigel- -WATCH VIDEOS-  Buzz-Worthy Luxury Real Estate Websites   Personal Bra...

It is beautiful day here in Carpinteria, and we are having a few days of Indian Summer with temperatures in the low 80's.  It was a perfect time to take off for a long walk.  The picture above is taken just as we cross the channel. Here is the photo of our way back. We saw a group of paddleboards with dolphins greeting them with their playful ways.  The beach is mostly deserted, except for the dedicated walkers and joggers, and few earnest fisherman, hoping the sea bass will bite. There is nothing like a bit of summer time in mid October.  Happy Tuesday, Cheers Ron & Alexandra Written by Ron & Alexandra Seigel- -WATCH VIDEOS-  Buzz-Worthy Luxury Real Estate Websites   Personal Branding Case Studies   Company Branding Case Studies   About Language of Luxury  - JOIN THE LOL COMMUNTIY -  ...

This little fellow took a pause from his walk to take a good look at us as we were walking on Sandyland Beach, Carpinteria.  We stopped, exchanged greetings, gave him his Cecil B. de Mille moment by taking a picture of his good side, and we each took off in different directions.

Orange cymbidiums are here showing off their fall colors.  I bought three of these lovelies orchids for our home to honor the season, at Westerlay Orchids in Carpinteria this morning.   You know its fall when one of our winter resident billionaire's yacht is anchored in the harbor.  He is here for the warmer climate.  Our autumns are not as prominent as they are in other parts of the country.  We have leaves turning, and everyone is wishing for rain, and a reason to wear new sweaters and boots.
