This photo was taken January 16, 2013 along the coastal cliffs in La Jolla, just north of San Diego. Today the weather is not as agreeable — thick fog forced a long delay in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

Last week we drove from Oceanside to San Diego along the coastal highway. It was cool, in the 40’s, but a beautiful clear day.

Capturing The Moment — The Sanderling   8 comments

San Diego 01-15-13

By the beach border, where the breeze 
Comes freighted from the briny seas, 
By sandy bar and weedy rock, 
I frequent meet thy roving flock; 
Now hovering o’er the bending sedge, 
Now gather’d at the ocean edge; 
Probing the sands for shrimps and shells, 
Or worms marine in hidden cells, 
A restless and inconstant band, 
Forever flitting o’er the sand. 

Sandpiper!—haunting every shore 
Where’er the waves of ocean roar; 
Old voyagers that roam the deep
Tell that your dusky pinions sweep
O’er the remotest islands set
In ocean’s emerald coronet. 
Far where Siberian coasts extend, 
Far where Australian borders trend, 
Far up the icy Labrador, 
Far where the Mexic billows pour, 
Are seen thy pinions, roving bird ! 
Thy melancholy note is heard.

from THE LITTLE BEACH SANDERLING, by Isaac McLellan. Poems of the Rod and Gun. New York: Henry Thorpe, 1886
