Desert Palms

A visit to Palm Springs this past Saturday meant a bit of hiking at Andreas Canyon, on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation. The day offered perfect weather, clear blue sky, snow-capped mountains surrounding the area. The creek running through the canyon was rushing, full with water from our recent bout of storms. All in all, […]

A Very Colorful House

While on a short vacation last fall, I drove down Southern California’s coast toward San Diego. Somewhere along the way, I saw a small community of mobile homes (manufactured homes) and drove through. This particular home caught my eye! ~SueBee

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to interpret Graceful, so I chose this spider web that I spotted at Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge. While I’m not keen on spiders, I think their webs are quite beautiful and generally very graceful. ~SueBee

Snow Tips

Today’s Foto Fix was taken at Big Bear last November when my family and I stayed at a cabin in the snow. It was fun for a day or two, but we all agreed we live in Southern California for a reason… the generally pleasant weather. 🙂 ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

I took this photo while walking in downtown Los Angeles, the contrast a stark reminder of my fortune in life. ~SueBee Lonely Man Shall […]

Coffee’s On

With all the storms we’ve had this past week or two in California, and what seems like endless rain, snow storms, blizzards, and ice, I thought this an inviting picture for today’s Foto Fix. Now if only my roof wasn’t leaking so I could enjoy that nice cup of coffee ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Names

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us for a photo that includes a name. I chose a name recognized the world over, Mickey, of Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse fame. I took this picture while on a tour at the historical museum in Garden Grove, and it seems suitable for the challenge. ~SueBee

Newport Beach, Last Day 2016

(15 photos) December 31 2016 was a rainy day in Southern California, a nice end to a mostly miserable year. Personally, I enjoy overcast, chilly days at the beach, so when the rain took a pause, I hopped in my little truck and headed to Balboa Island. I parked and walked onto the ferry for a […]

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
