Lagoon at Playa del Rey on a brilliant November day


playa del rey lagoonPlaya del Rey is directly south of Marina del Rey and the Lagoon is merely a few feet south of the end of Ballona Creek that runs about five miles from Culver City to the Pacific Ocean. A bike path borders the creek.

The Lagoon supports a varied assortment of bird life from Great Blue Herons and Snowy Egrets to ducks and geese. Mud hens (American coots) love the area too. And don’t let’s forget pigeons and seagulls.

In the photo above you see a clear view of the Santa Monica Mountains in the background.

As much as I love visiting other parts of the US or the world, I appreciate the various and sundry neighborhoods of Los Angeles just as much. And I feel fortunate to live in such a diverse area.

As we were eating lunch at a restaurant a short walk from the Lagoon, all these pigeons suddenly descended on the power lines. A few minutes later they were gone.

The lagoon is surrounded by apartments and condos. Not a bad place to live.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

  1. It’s always pleasant to walk along with you, Roslyn! Love these beautiful palm trees ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Not quite the park pond in my home town but on a sunny day you can work wonders ๐Ÿ™‚


    • I love any kind of water whether an ocean or a backyard fish pond… this is somewhere in between… but no denying the sun makes a huge difference to the experience!
