A Jetty in Newport Beach


Looking toward Corona Del Mar as a boat sails by.


I'm interrupting the brick series for a post that is eligible for the Watery, Outdoor and ABC Wednesday memes. I took these pictures with my old camera on and near a jetty in Newport Beach, California just before I moved out of state. There are many things that I don't miss about Orange County, but this is one of the things that I do miss.
