Color everywhere one looks!

Well David and I have bitten the bullet and put up our first tree in years. Out on the Lani goes the fake one and we'll go and get a real one on Saturday. Made plans for a party, so I've spent the afternoon shopping for stuff to get us started. Getting into the spirit which has been long gone for some time. Not such a bad thing me thinks!

Serpentine roads!

I cannot tell you how windy some of these roads were we traveled on the coast of Oregon and California along the ocean. I swear to god I thought we were going over the cliffs and into the cold bold ocean. At some points the speed was 15 so that tells you just how bad they were. Thank-god David didn't have his mustang, it would have been all over for us. Very cold here in Florida today, waking up to temps. in the low 40's with wind.

So much beauty

I have so many beautiful photos of our recent trip to Vancouver, Victoria, Washington, Oregon and California . A chore to pick out the very best but am trying. Had my first zap on my nose today, nine to go. Second photoshop class this afternoon should be getting me skills in knowing how to deal with my many photos.

Can't say they didn't have a nice view. This bridge is one of my favorites!

A wonderful story to share!

CA Condor-imp.jpg

I copied the following text, but one that many should find interesting and important. I think so that is!
Condor numbers dramatically declined in the 20th century due to poaching, lead poisoning, and habitat destruction.[3] A conservation plan was put in place by the United States government that led to the capture of all 22 remaining wild condors in 1987. These surviving birds were bred at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and the Los Angeles Zoo. Numbers rose through captive breeding and, beginning in 1991, condors were reintroduced into the wild. The California condor is one of the world's rarest bird species: as of June 2014 there are 439 condors living wild or in captivity.[4] The condor is a significant bird to many Californian Native American groups and plays an important role in several of their traditional myths.

Star of India

Had a wonderful tour of San Diego which gave us some quick insight of the area. A great city made even more interesting watching the planes fly in over our heads to the one runway they have. We plan to go back here someday soon as there is so much to see and do.
