point dume in malibu

i may never get to the bottom of these california photos, though i'm sort of re-living our brief get away all over again. point dume was filled with rocky beach views, charming houses on stilts, AND tar balls. besides jack johnson's hit song, i had no clue what tar balls were and my feet were covered in a black gloppy mess once we got back to the car. is this a common thing on california beaches? do kids just play in the sand no matter? i read the trick was to cover the tar balls in aquaphor (or vaseline) and rub with soap and water, which did manage to at least keep my feet from sticking to my shoes.

according to the rock climbers, the only thing on the other side of the rock was seagull poop and trash. BUT it used to be a nude beach.

no doubt the climbers had an amazing view.

I have never heard of tar balls, weird. I'm glad the WA and OR coasts don't have them, they don't sound awesome.

Also, your pictures! They're sooo pretty.

I'm from California and I've never heard of tar balls. Maybe it's just this beach?

Looks beautiful, great post!

I love these photos! Two questions. Do you usually edit your photos? If so, with what program? Also, where did you get that striped sweater? I love your outfit there!
