Wandering from Water to Land

One Beautiful Hiking Day from Torrey Pines to Del Mar

Summer is the time of the year where I most enjoy nature from water to land. For me, summer is the most wonderful time of the year. :) Last Saturday was our first time for the year 2015 to get into the water again. Oh boy, how I miss being in the water. If only the water does not get colder the longer I stay, I would stay in the water for as long as I could.

When I was still a kid, whenever I saw my mom looking for me, I would hide myself in the water. It was always a sad time to go home for home was out in the ocean for me. Thankfully, my concept of home expanded as I grew older. Though I still love the ocean, but I learned to love the mountains, the rivers, the woods, the desert, that home now for me extends everywhere. :)  I don't need to travel far to enjoy nature for nature is everywhere, and in nature I feel I am home. Even indoors at home, I still could enjoy the sounds of nature from the joyful singing of the birds and enjoy their wonderful and beautiful sight from the window.
Finding Nature at Home ( birds from the backyard )
Exploring nature has slowly taught me to live its patience and peacefulness. Nature has also taught me to take delight in the simplest things and be thankful for almost everything. I may wake up to the same place repeatedly, but each time it would look different. There are very exciting days, and oh well, not so exciting days. :) Haha! Like last Saturday was not so exciting in terms of photographing fishes.
Saturdate's Wandering from Water to Land at La Jolla Shores ( only saw silver fish and guitar fish )
Despite not seeing as much variety of fish that day, I still had a wonderful time in the water. I probably stayed about 2 hours until I felt very cold already and had to get out of water before hypothermia kicks in. 
Dolphins Saying Hi

Out in the water, I love being high on the cliffs too. I could continue watching the beautiful ocean below me, with the dolphins saying "hi" and the pounding waves crashing into the land seem to bring me such jumping joy. 

And here I am now storing my memories in blogger, :) , where I do enjoy reminiscing oh those wonderful moments of being out, but in and at home.
