All Aboard! Train to Oceanside, 2

(17 photos in gallery) Continuing where we left off yesterday, today’s gallery features my view out the Metrolink train window from San Clemente on down the coast to Oceanside. While it started as a rather blustery, overcast day, the temperature was perfect for walking. The sun eventually broke through, and the day was gorgeous. I […]

Please join me today and tomorrow, looking out the train window as we journey from the city of Orange in Orange County to the seaside town of Oceanside in San Diego County. You’ll view scenery […]

This scene at Corona Del Mar had me laughing. All the spikes and gadgets to keep pigeons off the roof of this very expensive, seaside home, and yet…. ! :D ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge, Enveloped, 2

I’ve decided on a second entry into this week’s Photo Challenge, Enveloped. This photo is a play on the word envelope, within enveloped. In my view, this brown pelican has folded himself as an envelope, ready to be mailed to his next destination. I took this photo while walking on the pier at Oceanside this […]

Colorful Oceanside (2)

Colorful Oceanside

I tend to be a spontaneous person; I love the excitement and sense of adventure it brings. This past Friday night, I had dinner with Kat and her boyfriend, Cameron, at a favorite restaurant, Ruby’s, at the Orange train depot. Naturally, the next morning my mind was on trains. So, I looked up the Metrolink […]

Exploring the Huntington, 4

Today’s post is the final installment of my wandering around the desert gardens at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. Springtime is by far the best time to visit this section; the colors and variety of blooms are phenomenal. Upcoming posts will feature my other favorite sections of the gardens… I […]

Exploring the Huntington, 2

Continuing from yesterday’s post, on into the desert at the Huntington we go! The fascinating array of plant life is mind-boggling, particularly in springtime when colorful flowers make their bold statement, “Look at Me, Look at Me”!! Be sure your face doesn’t get too close to that perky yellow flower, though, or you might end with a […]

Exploring the Huntington, 1

A week or two ago, I took a spontaneous day off work (that’s called playing hooky), and visited the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino. I became a member last year, when Stinky was on display (link to post here), and was overdue for another visit. The day was perfect, cool and overcast. […]

Much Ado at Sea

Much Ado at Sea

This photo perplexes me nearly as much as the pond reflection from a few days ago. I took it Sunday afternoon while wandering along the beach at Corona Del Mar, after my family’s wonderful Mother’s Day festivities had concluded, using my Nikon long lens (55/300). I can’t figure how so many things can be going on in one small spot […]

Hiking Oak Canyon Nature Center (21)

Hiking Oak Canyon Nature Center, 2

Continuing from yesterday’s post about my hike at the Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim Hills, I ventured down off the sunny side of the mountain, into the cool shade of the oak trees. Being careful to steer clear of poison oak, I followed one trail after the next, meandering this way and that. There […]

Hiking Oak Canyon Nature Center, 1

Kat told me about this great hiking spot she and her boyfriend “discovered”, less than 6 miles from home, so naturally I had to check it out. (It’s fun moving to a new area and learning about all it has to offer!) Oak Canyon Nature Center, located in Anaheim Hills, just a few miles from Orange, is surrounded by […]

Oak Canyon Pond Reflection

Oak Canyon Pond Reflection

Reflections fascinate me as much as shadows do. This one I find particularly tricky in determining if anything other than the stone and a few brown leaves are real, not reflected. I took this shot at Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim Hills during a recent hike. More photos from that afternoon of exploring coming soon! ~SueBee

Aztec Hotel on old Route 66

When driving from my hometown of Orange a week or two ago, en route to the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, I knew I’d have some time to kill because the Huntington wouldn’t be open until noon. So I detoured a bit, starting in Glendora and over through Monrovia, searching out old Route 66. I’d gone to […]

Umbrella Dance

Umbrella Dance

Today’s Foto Fix is from my visit to the Bowers Museum this past Sunday during their May Day celebration. The group of dancers from Czechoslovakia were performing a children’s folk dance. I did just a bit of photo editing, focusing the colors on the dance group while the rest turned black and white. ~SueBee

May Day was celebrated at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana yesterday with a variety of entertainment. This gallery of photos features the Dot Comm Dancers from the Orange County School of the Arts, performing for the audience. (Director: Jim Kolb, Choreographer: Tawny Chapman). The gals were expressive, energetic, talented. ~SueBee

Rainbow Sherbet Rose

As I mentioned previously, the gardens are so beautiful at The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, that I have a near-endless supply of photos from my recent visit! This gorgeous rose reminds me of sherbet (which I’ve pronounced as sherbert my entire life, by the way)… yummy! ~SueBee
