What is winter in Southern California?!

17 Jan

One of the first stops Kimmie and I made on my Southern CA excursion was to Huntington Beach.  I was so excited to see Huntington because she used to live there and so did a bunch of our friends, so it was exciting to see their old stomping grounds!  I’ve also never lived on or very near to a beach (I’ve lived close to Lake beaches but not ocean), so it’s fun to get to see the beach towns and people.  This past Saturday was the day we wandered around Huntington and there also happened to be a small surf contest going on but I had so much fun shooting photos from the pier of all the surfers and waves.  I couldn’t believe this was Southern California winter weather.  It was between 65-75 the entire weekend and people were in the water surfing all over the place.  I shot so many photos that I’ve decided to split this post into two.  Here’s the first of two, enjoy!

Ruby’s diner at the end of the Pier, so cute!

I love the way the waves look when they crash from the ocean side view.  So pretty.

So many surfers!

Surf contest.  The contest was on one side of the pier and the other side was for all of the other surfers.

We were literally looking down at the surfers.  It was such a neat and interesting perspective.
