Modern Art and People at MOCA

Kat and I spent this past Sunday together, out n’ about and exploring, just like old times! We took the train from Orange to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, with hopes of getting in the brand new Broad Museum. No luck for us in that regard, though. We hadn’t made advance entry reservations (it’s free […]

Portland’s Japanese Garden, part 1

While in Portland, Oregon, earlier this month, I visited the serene and beautiful Japanese Garden. The day was overcast and drizzly, perfect coming from a parched, over-baked Southern California.  Per their website: “There is meaning in every stone, reason in every plant and tree, and in every shadow a story.” Please enjoy the lush green gardens […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

For this week’s Photo Challenge theme of Change, I chose to feature changes I’ve been making to the rocks I collected during my early July vacation in Cambria. While there, I started painting the rocks, and have since found it to be a most therapeutic and relaxing hobby! My family has been dealing with an […]

Off the Coast at Palos Verdes

I drove my oldest daughter, Angelika, and her boyfriend to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) yesterday for their flight to Germany. Rather than sitting in rush hour traffic on the freeway for the drive home, I chose a little side trip. I visited one of my favorite gardens, South Coast Botanic Garden, followed by a […]

(14 photos in gallery) I’m continuing from my previous post showcasing sights of Portland, Oregon, as I toured the city earlier this month. The most memorable shot on this particular day is the one below, of the older couple sitting on chairs placed right next to the street. As I was walking along, taking pictures, […]

Building in the Sky

This photo, taken with my iPhone 6 during my recent visit to Portland, Oregon, was one of those lucky shots. A group of us were walking to dinner, I glanced up (naturally, always on the lookout), stopped walking, took a few shots, ran to catch up with the others. The reflection on the glass facade, along […]

Portland Rose Garden, part 2

(14 photos in gallery) Please join me as I continue my walking tour of the beautiful Portland (Oregon) International Test Rose Garden. We had a downpour of rain in Southern California last night, and I’m hoping if it continues, we might start to see some green here again, like in Portland!~SueBee

Portland is known as the city of roses (information below gallery). Please enjoy a tour through […]

Rose Garden Carpet

Today’s Foto Fix features a rather unique scene I came across in the Portland (Oregon) Rose Garden last weekend. It was an overcast, drizzly day (wonderfully refreshing for someone coming out of a drought stricken area). People were wandering the muddy paths with umbrellas overhead. I haven’t thought to bring one, and wouldn’t know where […]

Portland Sights, part 1

These photos of downtown Portland, Oregon, were taken during my visit there this past weekend, as mentioned in my previous post. I created my own walking tour and ended up completely smitten by this very beautiful city. ~SueBee

Portland Words and Signs

(29 photos in gallery) I was fortunate this past weekend to join in the wedding celebration of very dear friends, in Portland, Oregon. I’d booked my flight months ago, prior to my health issues, and worried I’d not be able to attend. But, luckily, I made the trip. Not only were all of the wedding […]

Oak Glen with Kat

(16 photos in gallery) Kat took an afternoon off work last week to join me in a spontaneous visit to Oak Glen, with its clear mountain air offering some of the best medicine for any ailment! We first had lunch at a favorite spot, (Riley’s Farm) Hawk’s Head Publick House, with its Revolutionary War era […]

Happy 2 year Anniversary to us!

Kat and I first launched our “Everything Southern California” blog on WordPress Sept 1, 2013. We’ve since published over 570 posts, and uploaded over 4200 images. We’ve been busy bees, no doubt. As our blogging partnership transitioned last year, with Kat venturing off on her own, I continued my adventures and shared those times with […]
