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

Colorful Bzzzzz

These shots were taken of a very colorful buzzing-type insect, which appears to be a mosquito, at the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach.

A Small Collection of Black and Whites

Nature After the Rain, part 1

Once the rain stopped Saturday morning, I jumped into my little truck and drove first to the El Dorado Nature Center, located on the edge of Long Beach at the 605 freeway.

Sideways

El Dorado Nature Center (1)

While growing weary of packing boxes for an upcoming move, I decided fresh air was in order. Following a recent recommendation of my oldest daughter, Angelika, I drove to the El Dorado Nature Center, just off the 605 freeway in Long Beach. My visit there was just what the doctor (me) ordered! It’s impossible 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
