Los Rios Historic District, SJC

(25 photos) Exiting the train this past Sunday from my spontaneous ride to San Juan Capistrano, I was surprised to find a tiny row of shops and restaurants running directly along the train tracks.

Weekly Photo Challenge, Transient

I’m interpreting the Weekly Photo Challenge of Transient as “here today, gone tomorrow”, and showing a couple pics I took from the train yesterday. I hopped on in Orange, where I live, and off at San Juan Capistrano, south of me. Seeing the field of crops surrounded by new buildings and construction equipment, well, it […]

Scaling Red Rock

(8 photos) Rock climbing Red Rock is very popular. I found it fascinating to watch, thanks to my zoom lens, as my friends gave me a tour of the area recently. It’s a sport requiring skill, endurance, patience, determination, and I would imagine finger strength (?!). ~SueBee

Ash Meadows

(16 photos) During my recent visit to Nevada, my friends toured us through Death Valley, on to the ghost town of Rhyolite, the town of Beatty, and then to Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge was absolutely fascinating. Crystal clear, turquoise water in the middle of the desert, with wee, tiny fish that flourish […]

Fishing from the Pier

Taking an evening walk along the Seal Beach Pier yesterday, I stopped to watch this fisherman getting his line ready and noticed a boat speeding right toward us. It managed a nice sideways maneuver and unloaded a worker from the oil platform visible in the distance. ~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
