Coastal hike at Vicente Bluffs Reserve, on the peninsula southwest of Los Angeles.
Picked out the best shots of the #PointVicente bluffs. I got there mid-afternoon & took some photos of the #cove with the historic #lighthouse (and could actually see Catalina Island in the distance!)
Then I walked along the blufftop path along the nature reserve for a while, before turning back to reach the lighthouse area by sunset.
On the way to and from Point Vicente, I stopped at Bluff Cove (also on the Palos Verdes peninsula). I was surprised to find that I could plainly see the skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles in the distance. I guess I’d never been there on a clear enough day before.
There were more people than I expected, but everyone was maintaining distance and most of them were masked up.
Really wish I’d had a tripod for the evening shot, though
Waves breaking over the end of a jetty across the way.
Fun fact: I discovered that if the wind is strong enough, it can blow a camera neck strap up and completely off of your head.
Not so fun fact: It was also blowing the tethered lens cap on directly into my face.

My first attempt to spot Comet Pan-Starrs on Monday evening didn’t work out, but I got to look back at the coast from the end of the pier, which was nice. You can see the Palos Verdes hills/peninsula in the background to the right.

Beach head at Seaside, Oregon, near the end of the Lewis and Clark Trail, just before sunset after a day of patchy rain.
