My brother’s wedding this weekend meant immersion in California’s eternal summer. The signs of fall here were replaced by beautiful plants that didn’t show signs of shutting down for the season.
I was smitten by sunrise …
And sunset …

My brother and sister-in-law brought their dogs, so the wedding was at the dog beach on Coronado, a spectacle amid all the dogs racing across sand and water.
Oh, the waves. Mesmerizing. I’d watch, breathless to see if the ones that followed could be more perfect than what I’d just witnessed.

And this bit of spectacular fun appeared on the beach the morning we went out for a last walk before returning to the Midwest.
