Leo Carrillo Beach this afternoon (Pics)

I happened to stop just north of Malibu at Leo Carrillo Beach and all I had was my smartphone but I managed to snap these three pics showing the gorgeous day we were having this last day of February.



Treasure hunting in the tidepools.


Lonely lifeguard tower.


Bird rock.

2. Beautiful photos, SunSeeker!

As a former native of California, growing up in Long Beach and living in San Diego, your photos brought back fond memories!

Thanks for the memories!

10. And today looks just as good!

Not a cloud in the sky and even warmer than yesterday.

18. There probably aren't

many here who remember that! Or that Leo Carrillo was Pancho.

7. I spent some of the best days of my life there

One day a girl with a pomegranate walked up to me and sat down and shared her pomegranate with me. I shared some weed with her.
It was a nude beach then and the red
juice on her tan skin was very sensual. Life was good in the early 80's.

9. Dayum. I'll have to remember to bring a pomegranate next time.

Although I don't remember it ever being a nude beach, what with it being a state park beach and all. But I guess on a warm winter day like yesterday, with nobody in the lifeguard tower and the beach pretty empty...

12. This was in 1982. Things have changed a since then

Lawrn Green use to own the apartment building above the beach and he did not mind nude people but after he died the law would come and harass us. I have not been there for over 25 years.

13. Los Angeles County closed Venice and all the other nude beaches

in the early 80's. There was point Dume in Malibu and Pirates Cove in the South County along with Venice and some more I can't remember the names of. The 70's was the heyday of nude beaches in LA County. Blacks in San Diego was designated as a nude beach by the city council in the 70's. Like other things in the early 80's religious conservatives squelched anything they saw as sin and the nude beaches disappeared. People went north to Ventura county and Leo Carrillo beach is were they gathered until that got closed too.

17. It is but the city portion of the beach is not nude and the

Torrey Pines State Park part of the beach is.

8. Good Memories

I was on orders to the West Coast and was away from my family for over a month at that point. Took a ride and stopped at Leo C beach, called my wife on my cell, she was on the beach with the kids on the east coast. So I told her to get her and the kids together and go in the water and I did the same. We were swimming in the Ocean together as family, a little separated but it did not feel that way. I will never forget that or Leo C beach.

15. Thank You

No the thanks should go to you. The pictures were wonderful and it was you who brought the memory to the front of my mind today.
That is a rare treat to have a great warm memory sprung forth and recreate a good time in life, and wash away the BS of a tough week of work.


A Bad day at the Beach still beats a Good Day at Work.
