Outdoor Wednesday ~ Malibu Lagoon

On Saturday Dear and I went down the coast to Malibu to check out the Malibu Lagoon. It was a drizzly gray day in Southern California but that’s good weather for Dear and I.

Don’t Pelicans look a bit pre-historic to you? I’m thinking Pterodactyl here!

This beautiful white Heron came gliding in. They are always so much fun to watch in flight.

Look at that duck surfing on that board! It was fun to see other critters besides birds, too.

While we were here we also explored the grounds of the Adamson House which is part of the Malibu Lagoon State Park and owned by the state of California. If you ever visit the lagoon make sure you cross the bridge over the lagoon on PCH and visit the house.

Have a great Wednesday everyone and make sure you click over to Susan’s at A Southern DayDreamer to see more of the Oudoor World.

  1. Very interesting lawn at the Adamson place! The birds do look like from another time! The colors of the lagoon grass against the water is worthy of a painting!!

  2. oh Ellen, what great photos and I love seeing Malibu through your eyes.

    I love the herons and particularly love you photo of the two together standing in the pond.

  3. Thanks for sharing this…, it’s wonderful to think of Malibu like this. I just love nature, water, the sea…, and I never get to watch Pelicans here in New England…, and the Adamson house so classy CA.

  4. Wonderful photos Ellen, hubby and I would love it there too, I agree about the pelicans :-), could sit for hours watching them, happy outdoors, must show hubby your post. Kathy

  5. The June gloom of the sky sets a mood for these shots. It seems like a “lagoon” should have a sky like that. I love the heron collage and those pelicans in flight do have a unique look .

  6. What a fun outing! I love the brown pelicans and, yes, I’ve always thought they looked prehistoric too! Drizzly days always make the greens pop in photos. Just lovely.

  7. I am sorry!!
    let me try again:
    What fantastic pictures ! love your collages. Malibu Lagoon looks fantastic even under cloudy skies!!

  8. Wow Ellen, those are some great mosaics of the birds. I always thought pelicans had a prehistoric look too. Those other critters were just too cute and the colors are just magnificent in your photos.
    Thanks for sharing part of CA with me!
