What’s on your to-do list?!  Shelly Cat By the Sea has created a list to remind her to enjoy life!  Shelly Cat’s adventures at the beach teach children about our local wildlife and San Diego’s coastal environment.  Shelly Cat and her friends, Marv & Louis, have learned a lot about San Diego sea shells by reading ” A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells”!  Here’s an illustrated page from my book about Giant Owl Limpets – look closely in the photo for the owl silhouette – do you see it?!  You can easily purchase both  “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” and “Shelly Cat By the Sea:  Adventures at the Beach” from Amazon!

Life is so much better when we are surrounded by beauty.  Pacific Beach.

SAN DIEGO BEACH LIFE

August Art Journal - Page 76 W

ART JOURNAL PAGE FROM AUGUST – Spending time walking in Pacific Beach I spotted a Western Seagull picking up a clam & dropping it over and over.  The gull just couldn’t understand why the clam wouldn’t open on the soft sand, but he sure tried to get it open!  Lunch at Ki-s Restaurant in Cardiff By-the-Sea next to the high-tide lagoon with the train trestle & Snowy Egrets was lovely.  I attended a photography workshop at a friend’s home in Leucadia & her home is right on the bluff above the ocean.  The view of the ocean from above is beautiful, but It is a long way down rambling steps to get to the sea!  In Pacific Beach, the “Stone Man” stood as stoic as ever just watching the sea.  I have given this rock naturally shaped by the sea & wind  the name of “Stone Man” because at just the right time of day with a certain light you can see the “Stone Man” face.  Every time I walk on the beach now I carry a bag & pick up trash.  Sunglasses, glow sticks, straws, beach toys, hats, flip flops it all ends up in the sea as plastic pollution unless we pick it up.  It is a lovely life by-the-sea in San Diego.
