|Not social distancing. The CDC recommends wearing a mask if you decide to get that close:)|
It was a much needed mental break from the day-to-day routine. It was also great to see that in many parts of Southern California that 90 percent of the people wore facial masks and observed social distancing. It wasn't until we got closer to the Orange County border that we noticed more people not wearing them. La Jolla was a great example of people NOT wearing masks or observing the 6 foot rule.

Our first day on the beach was a welcome moment. Like a mental sigh of relief. I didn't realize how much stress I have been carrying inside of me. Ocean breezes, cooler temps, awesome birds and lots of people watching. Life finds a way to go on even during a pandemic. Until next time....
