A Weekday at Oak Glen

In early October, I had a day off work and decided to drive the hour or so up to Oak Glen. I’d hoped too see some changing leaves for Autumn, and also smaller crowds. Oak Glen has been promoted extensively in the past year or two, making it packed with people and losing some of […]

Metrolink Train to L.A.

It’s already been a few weeks since I took an early train from the city of Orange, where I live, to downtown Los Angeles. We’d had a rare rain the day prior as you’ll notice in the one photo of a storm canal. Other photos are views out the train window along the way; more […]

Changing of the Leaf

I drove up the mountain from Yucaipa to Oak Glen, hoping to find a bit of fall color… I found it, a bit, as evidenced by this picture. I’m guessing our hot weather hasn’t been what the trees need to give us that beautiful splash of color we adore. Maybe next month… ~SueBee

Look Up at Union Station

Happy Friday! I took this picture yesterday while hoping not to get plowed into by people rushing past as I pointed my camera waaaay up at the ceiling. This was in the East Terminal at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. Rather dizzying I must say. ~SueBee

Wildfire Control in Action

I decided on a late evening walk yesterday, arriving at my destination (Oak Canyon Nature Trail in Anaheim Hills, California) just before dusk. Getting out of the car I realized I’d gotten there too late; it gets dark very quickly. I therefore figured I’d wander just a wee bit up the trail and turn back. […]

Sights from Sherman Gardens

I’m sharing a bit of scenery from Sherman Gardens, located a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean in beautiful Corona Del Mar. With a greenhouse, Koi pond, gift shop, cafe, and research library along with pathways wandering through various themed plantings, it’s easy to enjoy a full afternoon there. ~SueBee

Lily Pond at Sherman Gardens

I visited the beautiful Sherman Gardens in nearby Corona Del Mar earlier this week. It was a lovely, overcast day, perfect for photographing flowers. Just inside the garden entrance off Pacific Coast Highway is the ever-delightful lily pond with the adorable otter holding a hose, filling water into the pond. A visit to these gardens […]

Nearing Our 5 Year Anniversary

Tomorrow, September 1, 2018, will be the five year anniversary of SueBee and Kat’s first blog post being published! Reflecting on the places we’ve gone (both Kat and I at the beginning, and in recent years, me, solo), and things we’ve seen over those years makes me glad we started this journey. While I haven’t […]

A Day at the Lake

It was the perfect day at Lake Gregory in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. My oldest daughter, Angelika, our friend, Cynthia, and I took a picnic and found the perfect little lakeside beach to set up. Even the ducks were envious of our spot! ~SueBee

Holy Fire

As you may have heard, California is on fire. In Northern California, massive fires burn and burn. Then, just a few days ago, a fire started in Orange County, set by a madman already arrested by the police. This new fire was dubbed the Holy Fire because it started near an area of cabins called […]

Giant Bubbles

While wandering around the quaint town of Avalon on Catalina Island last week, I became enthralled with this street vendor making gigantic bubbles. The guy was using a contraption made from large sticks and rope. As you can see, he drew a crowd! ~SueBee

Kayaking off Catalina Island

The weather couldn’t have been better for a bit of kayaking off Avalon on Catalina Island. I rented my kayak from the Descanso Beach Club. I prefer renting there as I can paddle off from the beach (albeit a very rocky beach) rather than from a dock in the harbor where it’s difficult to get […]

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
