Two Mile Walk at El Dorado Nature Center

I visited El Dorado Nature Center a few days ago for a change of pace from walks in my neighborhood. Located next to a freeway in the city of Long Beach, I have to say, you wouldn’t really know the freeway was there. A hum of traffic is constant in the background, but the noise […]

Morning Walk Through My Town

I ventured out for a walk yesterday, early morning, by driving to the downtown circle here in Orange. Since I don’t often leave my home or immediate neighborhood, I considered it an Adventure. I was interested in seeing the new outdoor dining set-up the city approved for restaurants. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses have closed, […]

Morning at the Botanic Garden

My oldest daughter met me recently at the South Coast Botanic Garden for a socially distanced morning. It was required to reserve our spots in advance, as entry numbers were limited, and to wear our masks during the visit. It was really nice to get out for awhile; the gardens were beautiful. I hope everyone […]

Beach Time

I took an early morning walk, pre 8am, on the local beach this past Saturday, before the crowds hit. Now that our beaches have re-opened, again, this time with more safety measures in place, I wanted to take a look. Had there been crowds, I would have turned around and gone home. As it was, […]

Shopping for Fresh Produce

Since our Coronavirus (Covid19) lockdown, I haven’t shopped in any grocery stores, and I haven’t used any delivery services. I’m not very trusting of third-party workers… who’s supervising them, who’s watching they follow safety protocol, etc. Instead, I’ve ordered online and picked up groceries twice from WalMart (the only store that had any availability at […]

Morning Walk

Good morning, my fellow Covid19 Lock-downers, Stay-at-Homers, Quarantiners! I couldn’t pass up taking pictures of the perfectly shaped teddy bear bush and beautiful flower-filled wagon on my morning walk. I hope you all enjoy your day and stay safe. ~SueBee

Signs of Our Times, part 2

On March 31, I posted the first Signs of Our Times, showing Covid19 instructions displayed in local store windows. Today’s post is nearly a month later, and shows some changes since March (such as Face Masks Required for Entry, X marks the spot on sidewalk).  I wonder what might be new another month from now…. […]

Stay Safe

While today’s world feels like the first picture, with a large wave of doom ready to crash down, I look forward to the day our reality is the second one, with all of us still standing, and safe. I took these pictures seven or eight years ago at Newport Beach, California, with the little CoolPix […]

Pit to Plant – Study of an Avocado

I realize the time frame of my baby avocado tree is nearly matching that of Covid19 here in the US. The first case of the virus was diagnosed in Seattle, Washington on January 21.  I bought the avocado on January 17, let it ripen, then cut it open on January 25. It was absolutely delicious! […]

Time Has Slowed To A Crawl

We used to complain about time rushing on by, hours that felt like minutes, blink and another year had passed. Well, it doesn’t seem that’s a complaint anymore… for me anyway. I do love that about the Safer At Home orders during the Covid19 pandemic. While I spent last week making face masks for family […]

Join Me On A Walk, part 3

This is the final set of pictures from my wonderful walk through the Arboretum after getting an advance reservation slot due to the Covid19 situation. I hope you enjoy viewing the pictures! ~SueBee

Join Me On A Walk, part 2

…continuing on my walk (from part 1) through the garden during the Covid19 social distancing rules. As you can see, the roads were empty, shuttle bus shut down, trails and paths closed, drinking fountains taped off, day was overcast… altogether a very different experience, but I certainly got some much-needed exercise. ~SueBee

Join Me On A Walk, part 1

I discovered that a favorite Los Angeles garden where I’m a member is not closed due to Covid19. Rather, they’re offering advance reservation slots for members and other guests to enter. Upon reading that, I immediately made a reservation and drove the 40 miles early morning a few days ago. It turned out to be […]

Signs of Our Times

I took an early morning walk, wandering past a nearby shopping center which was nearly empty of cars and people. That in itself was odd enough, but seeing the signs taped into the windows of the closed shops gave me such a feeling of melancholy. My walk was brightened once I was back in 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
