Seal Beach Pier (Final Installment!)

So just finishing up the post from last Sunday. It was a very warm winter day and we took a drive down to Seal Beach pier with the ultimate goal of some Ruby-burgers, but also to take some photos along the way. It's so incredible when you combine a pier, the Pacific Ocean, and a sunset... how can you possibly go wrong?!
Waiting for the green flash!
End of the pier, fisherman, and Catalina Island.  Oil platform on the left.
Looking back towards the town of Seal Beach from the end of the pier.
Capturing that perfect moment!
This house (too big for a house... probably condos or something) was like a jewel glowing in the setting sun!
Our ultimate reward... burgers on the way!
I'm linking to Skywatch Friday.  Please go check it out for some 
awesome skies from all over the world!

  3. Oh wow, they have fancy street lamps out there now? And that building...I remember the old bait shack off to the side and the tackle store in the middle. I really need to visit the pier again. Thank you for sparking my interest. Oh yes, great sunset photos. Sorry, I'm just blown away by the changes there.
