Beach Polaroids

When we arrived at Paradise Cove north of Malibu this morning, it was still foggy and cool.

By noon the sun had broken through and the 4th of July weekend was officially underway.

We lounged around, watching the sea and the clouds.

I read French Glamour and started a new book, Hot House Flower and
the 9 Plants of Desire.
My friend Veronique, who lives nearby, stopped by to say hello...

We ordered french fries, chicken wings and fish tacos from
the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe. Everything was lovely, until...

Throngs of people descended upon our little beach. So we came home. Sunburned and happy, with Polaroids covered with sand and french fry grease.

Happy Weekend!!


PS: These Polaroids were taken with my 180 Land Camera.

What a beautiful start to the summer. Your polaroids evoke all the memorable beach days of childhood. You once mentioned you grew up in New Mexico. Where and when did you first discover the joys of seaside sand and sun?

We went to Topanga last night. Just a few other couples and a group of kids with guitars. Moonlight and the waves lapping the shore...

Love the look and feel of the shots- so much like a memory we have had from a day at the beach. Candyfloss, suncream - does it still smell like coconut? and sand.

Your Polaroids were terrific although you were killing me. I long to move back to CA so bad it hurts. Your day looked divine, crowds & all. Happy 4th to you.

Aaaaaahhh, lovely, I wish I could drag my husband to the beach. He used to live on the beach in Goa, literaly, but now, he's not much of a beach enthusiast.
