Beside the Ocean Blue

The gorgeous backdrop of the Pacific ocean made for some beautifully juxtaposed images of the numerous cacti at the Self-Realization Fellowship Meditation Gardens in Encinitas.  Being a long-time Texas resident, there has been no shortage of cacti sightings in my life.  Oh, but to see them against the vast blueness of the ocean was stunning!  These are my favorite shots of my visit to the gardens and it's my hope that you'll have a quiet moment to reflect on the beauty of this wonderful, amazing world we call home.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery


  1. I love how there is cacti along the road by an ocean...wonderful pics!!

  2. A great photo makes a person wish they were there -- and every one of these cactus shots at the ocean absolutely do that for me.


Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
