Bighorn Sheep Sighting

I hiked the Palm Canyon Trail late one afternoon during my Solo Car Camping trip at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, intent on spotting bighorn sheep (borrego, in Spanish). I wasn’t disappointed, except in myself for not lugging my heavy zoom lens along. The sheep were near-impossible to see, as they blend in amazingly well with […]

Terror in the Desert

It can get mighty terrifying in the desert… ~SueBee Per an article I found online on Yelp, “Philanthropist Dennis Avery (Avery labels) commissioned metal sculpture artist Ricardo Breceda to design and construct metal sculptures in scattered property Avery owned in Borrego Valley. He bought the land to keep it from being developed and give access […]

Solo Car Camping, Anza-Borrego

After getting my second Covid vaccine early this past week, and having no side effects, I decided to keep the camping reservation I’d made at Anza-Borrego State Park. My main purpose, other than a change of scenery, was to test out sleeping in my car for future camping trips. Note, I’m not keen on tent […]

Exploring Clark Regional Park

Clark Regional Park in the local city of Buena Park, home to Knott’s Berry Farm Amusement Park, was another on my parking pass list of regional parks to explore. Turns out I chose a beautiful day and really enjoyed the terrific walking trails that circled the park’s perimeter. In the park’s center, a pretty lake […]

Surf’s Up at Aliso Beach

As I neared the end of accessible walking area at Aliso Beach, I noticed a group of young surfers enjoying the waves, so I caught a few pictures with my iPhone. ~SueBee

Walking Peters Canyon Regional Park

Having a list of regional parks available to me using my new parking pass makes it a fun challenge to visit them all and compare notes with myself. Yes, I’ve previously been to a few of the parks, and yes, I could have gone at any time and simply paid the parking fee, but during […]

Snow in the Desert

Today I have guest pictures from my friend of many decades, Aranka, who lives in Pahrump, Nevada. The first picture was taken out her breakfast room window, the other two as she and her husband, George, drove to Las Vegas. The pictures are beautiful, but also quite a stand-out when you factor in where they […]

Read While You Walk

Yesterday I checked out the trails at Peters Canyon Regional Park, using my new parking pass. It was my first time at the park which had been nearly destroyed in a massive wildfire a year or two ago (difficult to remember as we’ve had so many years of wildfires). I’m glad the day was cool […]

A Walk at Yorba Regional Park

Using my recently purchased Annual Parking Pass for Orange County Regional Parks, I had a really nice, socially distanced walk at Yorba Regional Park in Anaheim. Being able to take walks in pretty surroundings without driving great distances easily justifies the cost of the pass to me. Included are 16 regional and/or wilderness parks, along […]

Vaccinated at Disneyland

Yesterday was quite the experience… being surrounded by hundreds of people after keeping myself to myself over the past 10 months. Yes, face masks were required, so I wore two! I was one of the lucky ones who got an email, after registering on the County website over a week ago, to get my first […]

Sunshine and Swan Lake Journals

I’m sharing pictures of selected views from two recent journals I made, one I named Sunshine and the other Swan Lake. Sunshine is based on a Bohemian theme with bright color pictures and sparkly fabrics, while Swan Lake is vintage inspired with softer tones. One of the things I really like about this journal-making hobby, […]

Make Do With What You Have

While walking through the California Botanic Garden in Claremont last week, I noticed this shed with an odd leg. Getting closer, I had to laugh at someone’s ingenuity. I hope the plastic holds up long enough for a new piece of wood to be cut! ~SueBee

Washing Away 2020

I made my annual journey to Newport Beach Peninsula this morning to write digits in the sand, and yes, to get wet, as a wave reminded me who’s boss of the beach. I found that completely appropriate, and it made me laugh! My new grandson was the bright spot of 2020; the rest of it […]

Happy New Year!

It’s not midnight yet here in Southern California, but I wanted to share a greeting that I believe most of us are glad to shout from the rooftops! Good riddance to 2020 and let’s welcome in a bright, happy, healthy, wonderful 2021!! I took this picture a few years ago at the Riviera Hotel in […]

It Snowed!

Southern California was visited by a powerful storm Sunday and Monday. My town of Orange had hail, wind, snow, torrential rain, lightning, thunder, more hail…! I looked out my front window to see a raging river of ice going down the street. If I could share videos on here, you’d see what I mean. Truly […]
