Wordless Wednesday: Anticipation in Carlsbad

Wordless Wednesday - Anticipation

 

Empty beach chairs in Carlsbad

 

The Carlsbad beaches are always packed on the 4th of July and today  was no exception. We were out early to avoid some crowds, had a big breakfast at Cafe Elysa (our fave breakfast place in the Village) then went for a long walk along the boardwalk which was already crowded with walkers, runners, strollers and dogs!

 

Lots of visitors and residents had gotten out very early to place their chairs, blankets, umbrellas and tents at the high tide line, lined up along the beach, to get the best ocean views before the crowds arrived...then went off to do other things. By 9 am most of the beach was packed at the water's edge (which you can't tell from this photo), and no doubt by midday there will be many more rows of beachgoers. Parking was already a major chore in town.

 

Thankfully we are not experiencing the heat wave blanketing so much of the country although it's supposed to hit 91 degrees Saturday morning which is a heat wave for us at the beach! That will feel cool to those back East and in the Northeast!!

 

Happy Independence Day!

HI Jeff Dowler, CRS - Most of the years I lived in CA was spent at the beach on the 4th. I can see why you put out your chairs early!

Jeff,

No heat wave here either.  We have been working this morning on a presentation which we just finished via screen sharing.  The sun showed up for a couple of hours here, and in town it was overcast...Will probably go to the beach at Sunset when everyone is gone...just vegging out the rest of the day.  A

Good afternoon Jeff Dowler, CRS,

What an idyllic day! We've been kicking back .....spent some time in the pool before the heavens open up with a beautiful rain! We can't complain about the rain as we need the water so we will adjust out schedules!

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

Yep we are usually there for a bit. When we had our beach house on Cape Cod we were there every July 4th with family. It was wonderful. Guess I don't enjoy the crowds so much any more.

Love that photo Jeff! We used to do that for parades in Phoenix and it was always a blast with friends.  Hope you're having a relaxed and fun 4th of July. We had the big event on Sunday. We watched fireworks from our backyard/pool last night put on by the moon valley country club - perfect straight on shot. Tonight is a simple grilling night and watching the DC 4th on TV.

Hi Dorie Dillard 

How nice to have had the rain - Texas is certainly having some issues with fires like we are here!

Good evening Jeff - that certainly looks inviting.  We had a BBQ on that started in the heat but cooled by rain.

Lake Michigan's waterfront is a beach crowded with spectators at this holiday...a combnation of nature's splendor and pyro-technic beauty !

Good morning Jeff. This is a wonderful post and I wish I could jump into your pictures.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - Nice photos! I hope you got to relax and enjoyed your holiday.

There's something mentally and physically rewarding about sitting on the beach and hearing the sound of the waves.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 .

Hope you had a wonderful 4th yesterday - sounds like it got off to a great start Sunday evening!

Looks like you got some prime time seats for an enjoyable event.  The 4th is always such a fun day!

Hi Jeff - the "world" typically tilts your way when a heat wave hits.

Hi Grant Schneider 

How nice to have had that rain. I hope your heat abates before too long. We hear it's coming our way now!!

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson 

I bet Lake Michigan was surrounded by visitors and residents enjoying beautiful weather and lots of fireworks over the water.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Yesterday was surprisingly quiet on Jupioter Beach but we enjoyed a cooler time than the NE.

Posted by Joe Pryor, REALTOR® - Oklahoma Investment Properties (The Virtual Real Estate Team) 3 months ago

I have a big cookout and stay in all day each year. I avoid the crowds and the heat when I get a chance.

Posted by JL Boney, III, Columbia, SC Real Estate (Coldwell Banker) 3 months ago

What a nice compliment Sheila Anderson 

And with the heat back in New England that sounds pretty good. Bet YOUR beaches were mobbed!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 3 months ago

Hi Patricia Feager 

We actually did not spend time on the beach itself this year on the 4th  - we'll go on other days when it's less crowded.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Jeff

Brian England 

Actually those were not our chairs, but it certainly looked inviting and in a primo location! There were lots of chairs, towels and tents up early with people saving their spots!

Hope you had a terrific holiday!

Jeff

Ha ha Michael Jacobs 

Lucky you Joe Pryor Seems like the East and New England have cooled down some now!

Hi JL Boney, III 

Hope your holiday was everything you wished for...and perhaps it's cooler now?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Jeff Dowler, CRS - When I lived in Maine, I did the same thing. I even got some great photos of my kids on windy days, Grey cloudy skies, on the beach in Ogunquit with my daughter wrapped up in a big red sweater and my son in his Chicago Blackhawk Jacket. They were my best photos. The less crowded the better.

Home alone on the 4th and enjoyed every minute! 

When you do have time for the beach, enjoy every grain of sand, the ocean waves, and of course great sunsets.
