Out to Pasture

My retirement from the full-time working rat race is coming to a conclusion in three weeks and two days! I’m happily turning myself out to pasture as of April 30. That final Monday and Tuesday won’t include much in the way of work, though, with the 30th consisting solely of an exit interview with some […]

Stranded?

This view was taken from top of the cliffs at Corona Del Mar and seems to show someone stranded on top of the craggy rock in the distance. I wished I’d brought my zoom lens to confirm, but from the looks of it, the person might have gotten quite wet when returning to shore. The […]

Daisies Framing the Pacific

These cheerful flowers are on a very steep hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Corona Del Mar. We’ve had so many storms lately that I chose the few hours without rain to get out and walk near the beach. Many others had the same idea! ~SueBee

Pond at Oak Glen

Today’s Foto Fix was taken a few weeks ago at Oak Glen. I’d hoped to see some fall colors, but the weather hadn’t yet allowed that to happen. Maybe I’ll take another drive up there this month… fingers crossed for cooler days! ~SueBee

Frida Kahlo at Olvera Street

Changing of the Leaf

I drove up the mountain from Yucaipa to Oak Glen, hoping to find a bit of fall color… I found it, a bit, as evidenced by this picture. I’m guessing our hot weather hasn’t been what the trees need to give us that beautiful splash of color we adore. Maybe next month… ~SueBee

Look Up at Union Station

Happy Friday! I took this picture yesterday while hoping not to get plowed into by people rushing past as I pointed my camera waaaay up at the ceiling. This was in the East Terminal at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. Rather dizzying I must say. ~SueBee

Lookout

Assigned the position of lookout, this little ground squirrel was spotted on the bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean just south of Carlsbad. ~SueBee

Nearing Our 5 Year Anniversary

Tomorrow, September 1, 2018, will be the five year anniversary of SueBee and Kat’s first blog post being published! Reflecting on the places we’ve gone (both Kat and I at the beginning, and in recent years, me, solo), and things we’ve seen over those years makes me glad we started this journey. While I haven’t […]

5th Annual Visit to Catalina Island

To help celebrate my 65th birthday, I made my 5th annual visit to beautiful Catalina Island, off Southern California’s coast. What a perfect day it was! The below  pictures were taken from the pathway leading to Descanso Beach where I rented a kayak to journey up the coast. There’s a cruise ship off shore, and […]

Coming in for a Landing, Reflection

This picture was taken yesterday after work at Crystal Cove State Park, just south of Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar. I was shooting the colorful umbrella reflections when the seagull swooped in and added action to the picture! ~SueBee

Wonders of the Tidepool

I took my camera to work today and headed for the beach as soon as I was off.  I’ve missed my out ‘n about adventures and figured I’d kick myself back into gear. What a grand idea it was! I drove down the coast just a bit below Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar to […]

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
