I went for a walk on the beach down by the lagoon today. The lagoon is formed by the flow from Malibu Creek.
The ocean waves create a sand berm which traps this water & causes it to back up & enlarges the area of the lagoon. It sometimes is this way for months, & becomes a great wildlife habitat. Then a rain storm will swell the creek to the point that the berm is breached & all the lagoon drains into the ocean. Today, while I was there, a fog bank started to roll in just at sunset.
The recent storms had also caused the lagoon berm to collapse. The outflow prevented any crossing to the other side, so I took some pier shots. I will return to the lagoon from the other side of the outflow soon & get some shots from that vantage point.
I hope you`ll enjoy the walk in images. All linkable areas here are to the same set of images.
I mention it, so you don`t overexert yourselves after the walk.
Have a great week end, & I hope you`ve all listened to dada`s Blues Legacy tonight. If you missed it, I`ll see how to put a link here, or dada might just do it himself.
