NOTE: This post was originally published on my previous blog, Recovering Shopaholic.
Last week, I let you know that I would be taking a bit of a break from blogging during September to focus on other projects and priorities and to consider my plans for “Recovering Shopaholic” moving forward. Although I won’t be doing the same types of posts I usually do here, I promised I wouldn’t be going away entirely this month. I still plan to publish some content here, including useful links, “Throwback Thursday” compilations, and my photography.
To kick things off, I’d like to share some photographs that I took recently in Imperial Beach. This coastal community is about a thirty minute drive south of where I live, but I had never been there in my thirteen years of living in San Diego! Not long after I arrived in Imperial Beach, however, I wondered what had taken me so long… The beaches are beautiful and decidedly less crowded than the “tourist trap” communities closer to my home. The tourists don’t seem to drive that far south, so the beach was mostly populated by locals out for the day with their families.
My husband and I spent about two hours in Imperial Beach, during which we grabbed a casual lunch, wandered around the area, and took quite a few photos of the beach, pier, water, and people. I am a big fan of piers and will likely share another “photo interlude” post soon with my favorite pier photos from the San Diego area. For now, however, I hope you enjoy this selection of images from beautiful Imperial Beach, an area I plan to re-visit again soon.
Bye for Now…
I’ll be back soon with some more fun content for you… In the meantime, have a great week!
