San Elijo Sunset

A gentle sun set between rainstorms at San Elijo State Beach Campground. This and the last picture were from my time at San Elijo, the only camper in a tent during the worst rainstorms of the past forty years. Though the campgrounds remained open, most of the sites were flooded, everyone taking refuge in their RVs.

As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.

San Elijo Storm Surf

Rainstorms along the California coastline produced heavy surf and much erosion of the bluffs. Here at San Elijo State Beach, the skies cleared between storms, providing campers with a reward for waiting out the deluge. Just north of San Diego, in a rather urban environment, the beach and lagoon at San Elijo are a refreshing taste of wild southern California.
