Oldies Car Show in Orange

Kat and I wandered around the oldies car show in our town plaza this past Sunday. The sky was clear, the sun hot, and we forgot to bring our hats. We attempted to stay on the shady side of the street, but the cars just kept calling us over. Lucky for no sunburn! I was […]

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 […]

Boats on the Lake

While at a birthday party for the doggies of my friends at William R. Mason Regional Park in Irvine yesterday, I became fascinated watching remote controlled boats on the lake there. A small group of men seemed to have boat sailing as their hobby by the looks of all their paraphernalia and the intent way […]

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 […]

On the Peninsula

Recently, taking advantage of a wonderful break from the storms we’ve had, I drove to Balboa Island and rode the ferry to the Balboa Peninsula. I wandered a few blocks and reached the sand. A really large berm had been built up by whichever government department is in charge of such things. I’m sure the […]

View from the Balboa Island Ferry

While taking a brief visit to the coast yesterday, I decided on riding the little car ferry from Balboa Island over to the peninsula. The ferry fits 3 cars. I chose to park mine in a nearby neighborhood, though so I could walk onto the ferry. I figured it’s good exercise, just $1 each way, […]

Reach For the Sky

Another desert oddity I spotted while visiting my friends in Pahrump, Nevada, this past weekend.  A saguaro cactus robbery in action! ~SueBee

Perplexed Squirrel

I witnessed the impact of humans on our wildlife population while visiting the Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens a week or two ago. It was so sad to see. I watched a poor squirrel skitter to the end of each branch on a tree that had been recently trimmed back; each branch was freshly cut. […]

Late Afternoon at the Huntington

On the way home from my brother and sister-in-law’s in Burbank yesterday, I stopped for a fairly short visit at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. I arrived at 3pm; the gardens close at 5. I’m glad I arrived so late because it looked to have been a jam-packed day. It was, after all, the […]

2018 Washed Out to Sea

I took my annual “washed out to sea” picture on the beach at El Segundo while waiting for my son and son-in-law’s flight to arrive at LAX.  The timing at the beach was perfect. The sun was setting and at the golden hour, the waves allowed me a very quick scratch in the sand, and […]

Ending 2018 in Los Angeles, part 1

Kat and I took the train from the Orange depot to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles two days ago. We wanted to visit the Natural History Museum before her membership and guest passes expired. Getting to the Museum was quite an adventure, though. The train to L.A. was a simple straight shot, no problem. […]

An Afternoon at El Dorado Nature Center

A real need to get outdoors hit, prompting a visit to the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach. Working in an interior office all week can do that to a person. The break was so refreshing as evidenced by these pics, taken with my iPhone. ~SueBee

A Weekday at Oak Glen

In early October, I had a day off work and decided to drive the hour or so up to Oak Glen. I’d hoped too see some changing leaves for Autumn, and also smaller crowds. Oak Glen has been promoted extensively in the past year or two, making it packed with people and losing some of […]

Metrolink Train to L.A.

It’s already been a few weeks since I took an early train from the city of Orange, where I live, to downtown Los Angeles. We’d had a rare rain the day prior as you’ll notice in the one photo of a storm canal. Other photos are views out the train window along the way; more […]

Frida Kahlo at Olvera Street

This picture was taken at Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles recently. I wandered around there before my train departure home to Orange County. ~SueBee

Wildfire Control in Action

I decided on a late evening walk yesterday, arriving at my destination (Oak Canyon Nature Trail in Anaheim Hills, California) just before dusk. Getting out of the car I realized I’d gotten there too late; it gets dark very quickly. I therefore figured I’d wander just a wee bit up the trail and turn back. […]

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
