Squirrel’s Drinking Fountain

Posts from SueBee have been infrequent lately. I’ve been thoroughly consumed by tasks for my son and his fiance’s wedding… and, it’s this coming Saturday! Excitement is building, last minute prep is at a frenzied pace, all will be wonderful. Taking a wee break to post this picture (also zoomed in so you can see […]

The Cabin at Green Valley Lake

(19 photos) As we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, and then zoom on to the reds and greens of Christmas, I thought I’d pull together some pictures from the weekend I spent at GreenValley Lake with my son, his fiance, and their doggie. It’s been over a month since we were there in an adorable, […]

Rainbow Sherbet Sky

I took a little drive to one of my favorite beaches, Corona Del Mar, after work this evening. It was glorious, especially as the sun crept to the sea and color splashed into the sky. ~SueBee

Working on the Pier

Autumn in Oak Glen

(14 photos) My spontaneous drive to Oak Glen, near Yucaipa, last Sunday resulted in mingling with crowds of people, but as evidenced by these pictures, I found some quiet space, too. It’s so pretty there in the fall, and the various ranches have all sorts of festivals celebrating apple picking season. ~SueBee

Help! It Fell Down and Can’t Get Back Up

Taking a partial line from an annoying (aren’t they all?) commercial here in the U.S. featuring a lady who fell on the floor but was saved due to the button she wore around her neck…. The signs of a good commercial is if it sticks in your head. Jingles from products sold on TV in […]

Pines at Oak Glen

After looking at old pictures I’d taken at Oak Glen, I suddenly got the urge for an in-person view. I tossed myself in my little pickup truck and headed onto the freeway. An hour or so later I was on the mountain, with countless others who obviously had the same urge. It seems craft fairs […]

It rained (sprinkled)!

We had a bit of rain here in Southern California this morning, sprinkles if you wish to be exact, but that, combined with cooler temps, makes me reminisce. I therefore dug into my older photos and came up with this rained-upon red rose. I took this picture in front of Hawk’s Head Tavern, Oak Glen, […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

A peek of San Francisco’s famous Golden Gate Bridge, the railing actually, as well as a peek over the side toward Horseshoe Bay. Such is my entry into the Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek.  As instructed, “this week, share a peek of something — a photo that reveals just enough of your subject to get us […]

Today’s post and the following one will feature photos of the interior of the park, the area thankfully saved by the courageous firefighters. The lake […]

Scorched Earth, After the OC Fire

(12 photos) California suffered through horrible wildfires in recent weeks, particularly Northern California’s beautiful wine country. But, here in Southern California we also had our share of fires. While ours were not nearly as devastating, wildfires are awful, regardless the size. A few weeks ago, I’d taken my grandpup, Kansas, for an early morning walk […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rounded

I chose the gorgeous, fascinating, rounded, living maze sculpture from the Getty Museum in Los Angeles to fulfill this Week’s Photo Challenge: Rounded. I took this picture a few years ago and it immediately popped to mind for the challenge. ~SueBee

Anticipating the Next Wave

With 100+ degree temperatures here in Southern California again, I needed something cool to look at. This inviting picture was taken just a few weeks ago, north of Ventura, during my mini road trip. I wish I could join those birds right now, at this very moment, at 8:30pm on a Monday night! Even though […]

Morro Rock, two sides

Today’s Foto Fixes were taken during my recent mini road trip up California’s central coast. These two photos are of Morro Rock, the famous landmark of Morro Bay, one taken from the south side early in the day, the second from the north late in the afternoon. I’d never seen the south side before, but […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow

For this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge using the word Glow, I chose the glowing golden hour interpretation as suggested. My future son-in-law, Loren, and I spotted this flag-adorned, vintage pick up truck, basking in sunset’s golden hour at Green Valley Lake, near Big Bear. ~SueBee

Fun on the Beach

Today’s Foto Fix was taken somewhere along the coast above Ventura, California. It was a beautiful day. With all the horrible fires, destruction, and very sadly, death, in our beautiful state in recent days/weeks, including here in Orange, I felt the need to post a lighthearted picture, try to cheer myself up. ~SueBee

A Visit to Solvang

(19 photos) I spent two nights recently at the adorable little Danish village of Solvang. It’s north of Los Angeles by about 140 miles, and about 170 from my hometown of Orange. Visiting post-tourist season was a good choice. My motel room was gorgeous and at a rate of $92/night including breakfast and passes for […]
