Just another day in Paradise 

March 16th, 2015

I took this picture from the top of Point Dume last night while hiking with my wife. Let this just serve as a reminder that this planet is still achingly beautiful and that we have a duty to protect it. If it turns out that we’ve already done too much damage to this world I still want the creator to know that I am grateful for having been given the opportunity to live here.



Happy 2015 from Malibu

January 2nd, 2015

Farewell to the year 2014, you were a doozy! The new year does bring some hope for positive changes and I made myself one resolution that I might actually be able to keep: To post more on this blog.

So here’s the last sunset of 2014.

Here’s wishing you a safe, prosperous and happy 2015.

Deluge!

December 12th, 2014

The first really big storm to hit Malibu in years is subsiding a little tonight. While other parts of Southern California are under ten feet of mud (or under water for that matter), Malibu seems to have survived this one intact. I have the usual leaky windows on one side of the house but that’s about all I know for damage. The burn area to the north of Malibu has produced a few rock slides that closed PCH again today. All those poor commuters who usually drive through town have to go inland on the dreaded 101 freeway, but my drive into Santa Monica was a breeze today. Not even any good pics to post about this one. But we sure need the rain, and I’m thankful.

I’m not usually a fan of defacing landmarks, but this one just seems fitting somehow.

Panga Misses Topanga

I didn’t know anyone bothered to smuggle weed into California anymore. How nice of them to think of sleepy little Malibu.

Leo Carrillo is not exactly a quiet, out-of-the-way spot either, especially on a warm summer-like day like today. They might have had better luck a few miles south at Little Dume. They might even have received a hero’s welcome.

Just the view of Santa Monica bay on my morning commute.

Winter Sunset at C Street

We like to head north to Ventura on days when Malibu is flat or big and overcrowded. This was one of those days.

Board Art

January 31st, 2014

A row of longboards against a wall makes for as good an art installation as any other in my opinion.

I found this picture on my phone from last summer. It was a really fine day at Malibu beach and the surfers were out in force, myself included.
