Dog Umbrellas, Llamas at the Beach in Pacifica

Linda Mar Beach, Pacifica, sketch and scene

Pacifica beaches are usually buried under a heavy fog bank but I watched the weather reports and picked the hottest, sunniest day of my vacation week to go. It was perfect!  I hiked the length of Linda Mar beach (above, also known as Taco Bell Beach because of the Taco Bell literally on the beach). Then found a wonderful crazy, winding path over the hills that connects Linda Mar beach to Rockaway Beach where I hiked the length of that beach too.

At the end of the day I walked around the nearby Linda mar neighborhood where I spotted so many things that would be fun to sketch, but I was getting sunburned, tired and hungry so headed off to dinner and then the drive home, much easier after rush hour was over.  I took the photos below as a reminder for another visit (and possibly some studio painting).

    Great sketch from a wonderful day!!! Is this your birthday week? Seems like I remember you always take that week off? I’m glad to see you had such a nice day at the beach, and you’ve definitely mined that day for creative inspiration.

      Thanks for remembering. My birthday is the 19th and I took the week before and the week after off, came back and only had to work 2 days and then it was 4th holiday. And now it’s not my birthday month anymore (I celebrate all month). So I’m thinking of appropriating July too. Jana

    Wow, what fun! The drawing is terrific, and there’s so much to look at. Must have been hard to choose.
