_Oceanside! My home -- The CITY in which I spent my fruitful youth!
Back in January, I was in Oceanside for the weekend for my mom's surprise 50th birthday party.
Not only was I there with all my immediate family, but multiple friends and relatives flew in from different states to share this special weekend with us! The Sunday after the party, we all went to breakfast and then took a lovely stroll along Oceanside beach and then onto the pier. I was casually walking along and then look up to see my mother pointing to this huge pelican. She said, "Look, aren't they cool... they usually pose in that box for people." Man, were they cool. I was mesmerized by these lively large birds for quite some time. After playing around with my new canon point-in-shoot camera I got for christmas, these pictures are the result. The sky was so clear and the birds were so colorful! This little camera and my love for all that is around me enabled these vibrant photos to come to life! Don't ever hesitate to put your camera in your pocket for an afternoon stroll as you never know what wonderful you will encounter!
I am in love with life and all those in it.
