Summer Beach Pictures


I have been taking my camera to the beach every week and have come up with great shots.
We go to the Point Dume area of Zuma Beach off Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.
It's about 30 minutes from our house.

This is a compilation of shots from the past few weeks.

This is a sunset from our front yard last week.



Katherine loves the waves and has no fear.....


Though after taking this shot, maybe she should rethink her bravery...


Jeffrey is fishing with seaweed, and Katherine takes another spill


More frolicking


Jeffrey enjoying the moment


Jeffrey as the Sorcerer in "Commanding the Waters"


Katherine trying her hand at controlling the waves...
Either that or she's trying for Master of Silly Walks


A few waves pictures.. I must have taken 100 of them




4 of them out in the waves


LOOK! Out there...........


It's dolphins!!









Jeffrey was racing with them up and down the beach


The boys were thrilled they were so close to shore.



Here the boys were enjoying the way the sand felt on their feet


And here they come looking like they just had their nails done


Katherine spent a lot of time panning for sand crabs


Here everyone is trying to count how many were in the bucket


Jeffrey looks shocked he found some in his bucket


Here the girls were trying to divide them all up so everyone had the same number


Sarah takes a look


The kids spend a lot of time digging holes while we are on the beach


Jacob and Jeffrey would dig to China if they could


Jeffrey testing the depth of this hole


A collaborative effort well done


Everyone got themselves into the hole today


Katherine and Olivia spend a lot of time building sand castles


They are never very big, but they have fun making them



Always the ham


Jeffrey shows off his amazing 10 year old physique


Charles Atlas.. watch out!!


Katherine finds digging holes to be a tiring experience


In their best effort yet, Jacob relaxes at the bottom of their masterpiece


Jeffrey brings the water to  demonstrate the built in tunnel they created


Alex enjoys the relative quiet


Sarah snoozes in the sun


The seagulls seems to have a lot of yelling to do.
Of course after they ate Olivia's sandwich, there shouldn't be too much for them to complain about


I caught this one taking off





Pelicans.. a lot of them!


The lifeguard is surfing in his boat


One day, I promise I'm going to own a beautiful house on the beach
Of course I better be in shape if it's one of these because the hike down the mountain is a killer!


Lifeguard station #3


Kayakers


These last photos were of the little kids from the family who was sitting near us.
They were so cute and really enjoying themselves
