Walking Ocean Beach

I have always loved water since I was a kid. I guess growing up in the shadow of the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay kind makes a water lover out of you. Lately, the weather in this area has been so lovely. Usually we have a layer of fog (that helped the famous Mark Twain saying "The coldest winter was a summer in San Francisco) that stays around, but lately it has been burning off early in the morning and days are so beautiful around here. The other day I decided to go out and walk around Ocean Beach in San Francisco. The Beach is about 3.5 miles long and is along the Pacific Ocean. It does not have a Boardwalk or anything. It is just pure beach and ocean:

I Love the Plant Life at Ocean Beach
The Surf
I guess I like walking Ocean Beach because it does not a lot of people, so you can walk around and explore things that the water brings in.

Shells that the Ocean Brought in
Loved this Shell
I also like looking and watching the marine birds at Ocean Beach. It seems to me that they are less aggressive than the ones at other beaches. I guess Ocean Beach gets the mellow birds.

But all and all Ocean Beach is one of my favorite places to put in the IPOD, take a walk and chill out.
