This photo makes me want to get out the oil paints. It has a painterly quality that I really like. I do miss East-Coast azaleas…we have them in California, but they’re small and not that great.

Since we’re still sheltering at home, I’ve started going through all my photos and deleting the ones that should have been deleted years ago. Kind of kicking myself for not doing this sooner, but there’s no excuse now. There are thousands, so I’ll be at it for a while.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy!

Beautiful Vintage

A few years back we went to Disney California Adventure and I was surprised at how quaint it was. Lots of vintage signs and storefronts and a picturesque old gas station….

I especially liked the “Tireflator.”

See the vintage car parked in front? That’s a Packard, maybe from 1939?

I love the hood ornament.

Stay healthy and have a great weekend, everyone!

This Guy Gets Social Distancing

Every time I look at this I imagine him saying, “What do I have to do to get a drink around here?” 🙂

Stay healthy, everyone!

A Street and a Bike in Amsterdam

I loved the way people in Amsterdam decorated their entrances. Bikes were everywhere.

Almost missed posting today then realized it’s Friday. Anyone else having trouble remembering what day it is?

Stay healthy and have a good weekend, everyone….

A Favorite Place

For me, one of the most beautiful places in the world is the Na Pali Coast of Kauai. I hope to see it again one day. That’s a cave just left of center.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone….

Ole Green Eyes

This little guy had to be left behind when my husband had his surgery. Six whole weeks, but we found the best pet sitter! It was true love on both sides…she sent me more than a few photos of Yuri on her lap and looking very content. It was such a relief to not have to worry about him while we were gone.

Great weekend, everyone….Stay healthy.

Back Again

Hi everyone,

It feels like I’ve been gone for ages. Sorry about that. My husband had kidney transplant surgery (on Christmas Day no less!) and I was his caregiver. I have to say it was the most stressful and rewarding experience of my life.

And now we’re living in the times of the Coronavirus. It is surreal to think this virus is all over the world now. We are staying in as much as possible to do our part to flatten the curve. Just last night the governor of California ordered all residents to stay home.

Since I can’t do a lot of photography, I’m going to dig in the archives and offer up a photo each week that hopefully will take your mind off these challenging times, even if just for a moment.

Oh, WordPress has changed the format since I left, so I’m kind of learning as I go. I do appreciate your patience!

Stay well, everyone….

Hi everyone,

I’ve been absent because my husband had major surgery and I am caring for him. Hope to be back before too long.
