Dog Day Afternoon, Ocean Style

On this fine Saturday morning Kona and I started off to Dog Beach. As we were cursing along Coast Highway, the traffic became thick with brake lights and people were swarming the are. Oh crap. I finally realized it was the final weekend of the US Surf Open.


Luckily, we got through downtown without a glitch and found great parking. This guy found great parking too.


Good ol’ Ruby’s Diner. Back when I was a kid it was The End Cafe, before it was destroyed by huge waves in 1983.


No, bub, I’m not following you into the water just yet.

C’mon already! It’s time to get wet!


Pretty houses on the way back to the car.


More pretty houses. Some were empty! Do people actually live here?


 Cheers to a fabulous weekend!

  1. Your dog beach looks like crazy fun, K. Biting the water seems like a bad idea if what your mom says is true… Yikes! Once I almost stepped in a puddle. Almost.

    Love and licks,


  2. Hi Kona, do you live in a paradise, the place looks like it. Your Mom takes great photos, I love that black and white photo, because you are smiling.
    You have white sand, have you ever seen the the white we have most of the year, snow?

    I love the beach….never seen one in real life but they look so cool. I bet Kali that you live in California. Kali says no, you live on an island like Hawaii. Your name is Hawaiian, the same as Kali's. Let us know who's right or if we're both out to lunch.
