Marina Dunes Preserve, on the western side of the city of Marina, CA, was actually our first stop on this last trip to the Salinas area. By the time we got there the sun was setting, but there was enough light to photograph the dunes and their flowers.

Only a couple of fishermen were on the beach, as a seagull checked them over.

The sun was setting, but I was still on East Coast time and could not wait for it to disappear completely. Still it allowed for some colorful shots with the surf relentlessly pounding the sand.
