Sunset at Salt Creek

Collages1

Salt Creek Beach is one of those beaches you might not know is there unless you are a local or staying nearby. You know it has to be a nice beach when the Ritz Carlton corporation decides to plop a hotel on the bluffs above it (and a gorgeous hotel at that). My first visit to Salt Creek was a couple years back when my brother took Paul and I there to play volleyball. I was amazed by how gorgeous the beach was and loved that there was a grassy hill above the beach with incredible views. Plus I love imagining I am staying in one of the exclusive homes up on the bluff. Sipping on a cocktail. Watching the sunset from my balcony. Wondering what I am gonna do next.... Its not hard for me to slip on over to my happy place when I am at the beach.  Anyhow, we took Paul's sister to Salt Creek to watch the sun set her first night (and only kid-free night) of her visit with us last week. It had been cloudy all week but the beach gods smiled down upon us and gave us a spectacular sunset. Here are some of the many pictures we took that evening.

I'm glad you decided to join us this week! I agree, this is a beautiful beach. In fact my husband and I strongly considered getting married here back in 2000 (we ended up at nearby Pelican Hill instead)

Great photos, if you don't mind me asking-what camera do you use? I'm camera shopping this summer, so I'm always looking for tips.
Anyway now I have a new beach to try out. My favorite time at the beach is sunset, especially here on the west coast.
