It was around 3 pm, and the sun’s glare reflected on the lake and through the people fishing. I especially liked the shadows that the people cast.

Lake Murray Study

Lake Murray is part of the San Diego Mission Trails Regional Park and a great place to walk, bike, and paint. Every direction has a beautiful view, but the view looking west from the boat launch area may be my favorite.

We went up to Leo Carrillo Park in Carlsbad, north of San Diego, to paint trees. These trees have leaves year-round, but their limbs were too beautiful to hide.

San Diego Bay

It was a perfect day for watching the bay go by.
