Things I Saw April 5 2014 (14 unique photos)

I took my mom on a drive south along the coast yesterday, ending up in Carlsbad at The Flower Fields. The weather was fantastic, quintessential Southern California all the way! Below are a few sights from the day. Did I ever mention that I love the variety this part of the world has to offer?!! Here we go! Approaching the stairs leading down to Calafia Beach, the coastliner train whooshed right by:

and the very interesting contrast of a man in a flag-themed shirt taking pictures as one of the monks walked past.Things I Saw April 5 2014 (8)

Leaving the flowers and driving back up the Coast Highway toward downtown Carlsbad, there walked a man leading two mules, and I wondered, am I now in 1860s Gold Rush country??Things I Saw April 5 2014 (9)

While still pondering the mules, I spied this guy drive past in his “what the heck?!” roadster:

Then, lo and behold, I’ve returned to the 1960’s, headed to the beach with surfboard and cooler safely stowed up top, Hawaiian bobble dancers on the dash:

    Love all the pictures, but the standouts for me are the flower photos esp. the one with the little girls. Awesome set!

    Those flowers were certainly worth a visit among all the other delights.

    The two girls with very different areas of interest was a real stand out in this group.

    What a fun day! Your corner of the world seems like it can’t be beat for the amazing variety of photo subjects. Lucky you to live there!

      It was a fun day. And I have to say, having lived here most of my life, I’m still continually amazed at the variety, perhaps more than in my younger years, or because I notice it more now. Thanks so much for visiting! ~SueBee

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
