With summer winding down but heating up here in California, one’s thoughts may turn to cooling off. Around here, the place to beat the heat is at the shore. Manhattan Beach was the destination this day, for me and a few others.
At the end of the Manhattan Beach pier is a small aquarium and cafe, which are worth the trip out; if the prospect of the view isn’t enough to entice you on its own. This day, there was an interview being filmed alongside the usual sunbathers and swimmers.

The evening at the beach is a lovely time to enjoy the cool breezes and sunsets.
Piers are intriguing subjects in my opinion. The symmetry of the pilings and the silhouettes of the figures capture my imagination. Whether viewed from close up or further away I am drawn to these structures suspended over water.
The perfect ending to a summer day. . .
