It's been a while since I've posted at Rebecca's Postcards from Paradise, but here I am late on a beach summer night and very much aware that I live in paradise: Redondo Beach, CA. The window is open and the sea must be calm; I hear no buoy bells or sea lions barking tonight. Just the hum of traffic somewhere a few blocks away.
I remember distinctly the night I took this photo of Redondo at sunset in 2004. I had taken my then dog Cookie (who has since crossed the rainbow bridge) for a walk at the beach and took lots of photos of her with the ocean as backdrop. And then there was this.
