Malibu, California on a Sunday Morning!

I discovered a new set of stairs to the beach today. It’s been two years and 5 months since the Malibu fires that swept through area, and these stairs are part of the reconstruction of an area of Leo Carrillo State Beach.

Straight on from the stairs was this!

Walking left, you approach this!

The view at the end of the path that looks south: because my camera lens faced into the sun, this photograph darkened

    1. Yes, Liz! Today is unusually hot, but it’s nice! I understand we’ll be back in the low 60’s in a few days. But for now, it’s like mid-summer. And your daughter is in a wonderful area. She’s minutes from La Jolla, which is a town I love!

  1. I was aware of the fires in Malibu, Claire. The construction of the new stairs is good so people have easier access to the beaches. Your photos are great. You posted photos of the area from different angles to give us the perspectives of the area.

    There was a forecast of Santi Ana wind. I hope it’ll be brief.


    1. The wind is blowing now, but it’s not with that infernal heat that the Santa Ana winds typically bring. We’ve lived in Malibu for 20 years, and those winds are beyond all! October seems to be the worst month for them. I’m impressed that you know about them! Are you in California?


      1. I live in Orange County, Claire. I’m terrified by the Santa Ana wind, the fires and mud slider every year.

        The wind right now is not Santa Ana wind yet because it’s blowing in a different direction.


    1. Our friend’s son and his family live in Ojai. He is a teacher. The fire burned part of their house and many wings of the school. After the evacuation, he stayed around to help the students’ families while his wife who was, at that time in California for just a few years, drove the young kids on the surface streets from where they were to Orange County and stayed with our friends until her husband came. They stayed for over a month until the school reopened. The community helped to bring in bungalows as temporary classrooms.
