First time at Ocean Beach pier

I visited Ocean Beach pier yesterday evening – for the first time since I’m in San Diego, which is over four years now! I was at nearby Sunset Cliffs a number of times, and also at the dog beach with Toni (just one time, as she didn’t like it – too many other dogs around, she’s not comfortable with that, lesson learned), but never to the quite iconic, T-shaped pier. So yesterday, I finally went there – in particular because there was a high surf advisory in place for the San Diego coastal areas, and I wanted to see some good waves (remembering one particular photo by my friend Douglas).

I quickly found the tide pools south of the pier and despite being veeeery slippery I found them just too good to not try and get a photo of them with the pier in the background. Just when I had an initial exposure (see first image in the gallery below) I got splashed real good by two sneaky waves in a row. I stayed and waited for sunset despite being pretty wet all over – luckily, I was wearing my hiking boots which I had treated just two days prior, so my feet were warm and dry, which is the most important thing. The sunset came, and was surprisingly colorful! Here are some quick impressions. I hope you like them.
