My Top Ten Fav Picks of Masterpiece Monday #30

Do you like to take pictures of sunsets and/or the blue hour?
 Charles and I headed down to the beach last Saturday
to take pictures and just walk around.
 We had just gotten to the pier and caught the sun sliding down behind Catalina Island. All of the cranes and equipment were on the beach, getting ready for the US Open Surfing Competition coming up. The pier was packed with people.
 We left the pier and headed across PCH to the Strand. We passed Jack's Surfboards on the way there and I really love this sign! :O)
 The Strand Is a new  street of shops and the new Shore Break Hotel. Here is a wetsuit wall quilt hanging in the lobby. You don't see many of those!
 One of the many things I like about this Hotel is the outside patio which has fire pits and sand.

 Leaving the hotel, it was finally the blue hour and I got some pretty good shots of the strand.
 Here is the front of the Hotel.

 Saturday night traffic on Pacific Coast Highway

 Walking back past the pier and
 Dukes restaurant. I never get tired of coming down here, I love it!
