Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

(16 photos in gallery) This week’s Photo Challenge theme of Humanity, interpreted to mean selflessly caring for others, is one dear to the hearts of most of us, and yet truly acted upon by just some. And by those in varying degrees. While many go about their lives living for themselves, simply passing through each day, others spend those same days in […]

Not France, Not Italy, Temecula!

Not France, Not Italy, Temecula!

Friends are often surprised by some of our photos, mistaking the settings for somewhere in Europe. As our blog has hopefully proven, beauty and adventure are abundant in our own Southern California backyard. While traveling is awesome, and we’ve done much travel in Europe and throughout North America, there is more to see and do locally than we can even keep […]

Posters of the Great War (1)

Posters from the Great War

This collection of posters from the first World War (WWI) was on display at the Huntington Library and Gardens when I was there visiting Stinky. Viewing the posters, one naturally reflects that here we are today, nearly a hundred years, and many “great” wars later, still killing each other. A pitiful statement of certain aspects of mankind. I personally […]

Pontoon Boating on Lake Perris

(18 photos in gallery) Lake Perris, a beautiful, man-made lake in Riverside County, was the location of my son’s 31st birthday celebration last weekend. Friends and family pitched in and rented two pontoon boats for the day. We headed this way and that across the lake, sometimes in the same direction, other times opposite ends of the lake. The first few hours had some […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure

This week’s Photo Challenge theme of Adventure is demonstrated by a statue I admired at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula this past weekend. Children heading off on an adventure… what could be better?!! ~SueBee (photo by SueBee) (photo edited in Picasa3)

On the Water, Lake Perris

On the Water, Lake Perris

Unexpectedly beautiful is how I’d describe Lake Perris, a man-made lake in the Southern California desert, where our family camped and went boating this past weekend. More to come later….! ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Rosebud

Rosebud

A simple, lovely rosebud for today’s Foto Fix as Kat and I are heading off on a weekend of adventures, including wine tasting, camping, and boating, with family and friends, celebrating my son’s 31st birthday. Where did the years go?! Seems he was just a toddler. This rosebud showed its pretty face at the Huntington Library and Gardens while I […]

Back Alley Tomato (6)

Back Alley Tomato

The photos in this gallery showcase the hardy plant Kat spotted as we cruised Melrose in Hollywood and West Los Angeles this past Sunday. Among the art-encrusted back alleys we bumped along, directly behind trendy shops, struggled this tomato vine, peeping through the fence, offering its fruit to anyone who would have it. ~SueBee (photos by Kat)

Lake Hollywood

Lake Hollywood Reservoir

Kat and I went exploring Sunday afternoon, after a morning drive back up from San Diego. We’d been on a family weekend get-away and dropped Kat’s two older siblings  at their places in Orange County and downtown Los Angeles. Kat and I first swung by the San Antonio Winery, then headed towards the west side of town. It […]

Orange International Street Fair (11)

Orange International Street Fair

(18 photos in gallery) The city of Orange hosts an International Street Fair every Labor Day weekend, this past one being their 41st. I drove toward the town square Friday evening, and smartly chose to park a mile or so away and walk in, avoiding all the people endlessly circling for spots. The Street Fair goes on the […]

We treasure the interactions with other bloggers, memories of the fun places we’ve gone throughout Southern California, all the things we’ve seen, and having had a place to put the multitude of photos we’ve taken.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
