Beach vacation photos
in Huntington Beach provide glimpses into a beach vacation
at the Huntington Beach Pier. We sent a correspondent out to
Huntington Beach one sunny day for a stroll, requesting that
he take a few snapshots of the activities seen on or from
the Huntington Beach Pier.
His walk began with an
Asian mother holding her toddler at a view scope. The
curious child points the scope up to the sky instead of out
to the ocean to watch surfers offshore. Perhaps this kid
will become an astronomer!
Next, our travel
writer looks out to Huntington Beach to the north shore
toward L.A.. The waves are small but he sees many surfers
waiting for the next break, and alas, one catches a ride.
Huntington Beach beaches and the Pacific Ocean are filled
with surfers on most days, guaranteeing you'll likely see
one on a visit.
Next you'll see a cute
couple in blue jeans and white ball caps gazing out to the
sea. It's one of the favorite activities at Huntington
Beach, watching the ocean. Sometimes you'll see surfers,
sometimes you'll see birds such as pelicans and seagulls, or
a sailboat, motorboat and even a jet cruise by at a higher
altitude. With the Pacific blue stretching into the
distance, it's all pleasurable to watch.
As you head further
toward the end of this long cement pier, a dad carries a
youngster in his arms. From the child's perspective,
everything is seen going away from him. The handsome, little
guy squints his eyes in the bright sun. His blonde hair will
lighten, if he comes often.
There's so much to see
on the HB Pier. Our on-location photographer encounters two
pedicabs with teen girls taking rides to see the sights of
the ocean, fishermen angling, a family neatly lined up for a
vacation portrait with the ocean and beach as their
backdrop, a practice volleyball session on the sand
volleyball courts below and the signature woody car
stationed as a wind sock at the Kite Connection flags &
Does this bring fond
memories of your journey to the beach? It's one of the
classic vacation ideas that can't be beat!
