Seal Beach Sunset Holiday Lights Seal Beach
--When November rolls around in Southern
California's Seal Beach, the Seal Beach
pier takes on a new glow. What a beautiful sight to behold! Some
evenings can be busy, but mostly the holidays at the pier are mellow. Often
muted in a slight fog or a damp coat of dew, the evenings are just so special to grab a
jacket and take a stroll on this wood-decked pier. The ocean waves crash below
you as you wander out past the sand line...past the lifeguard tower where the
wind picks up a little.
Shown in the photos above are the sun
showing through the pier pilings, the lighted shapes on the pier lamps, and
downtown Seal Beach with its small, sparkling lights. While some evenings the
shops are closed after 7 or 8 p.m., that's OK. You can window shop. Spend your
time wandering and looking in the windows, soak up the setting sun, grab a hot
coffee, hot toddy at one of the Irish pubs in town or a tasty meal at Seal Beach
classics such as Walt's Wharf where seafood is king.
It's amazing that tourists from all over
the world discover little Seal Beach. It doesn't promote itself much. But that's
why word gets around. People find it maintains the qualities that make visitors
feel at home. You don't need hype, T-shirts and a parking ticket to remember
your visit to Orange County beaches. Seal Beach seems to do fine for those who
aren't fooled by the tricks of the tourism trade.
