Hello My Friends

 We have been enjoying spring here on the west coast as we travel our way up
California and into Oregon.

One of our stops was Napa, California.


Miles and Miles of Vineyards.

So many Wineries so little time. 

If you would like more details of our travels up the coast you can stop by my 
Husbands blog.  He's so much better at writing that technical stuff then me. 

We have landed here in Oregon now. 
And will be making our final stop for the summer in just a few days.

Thanks so much my friends for stopping by.
I truly appreciate all your kind comments.

Hello again my sweet Friends.

I know this is my second post this week.
I'm  as shocked as you are but I've been wanting to
play along with some of my favorite Meme's.

Back when we were in Imperial Beach, CA we were backed up to a 
fence and that fence was covered in these beautiful Morning Glories.

On the other side of the fence was a Bird Refuge.
On most days we didn't see too many birds.

Just these red finches every now and then. 

And then when least expected I saw him there.
Yep, Right there on the other side of the fence.
A Great Blue Heron.  I'm pretty sure he was checking me out. LOL

He didn't hang around too long.  
I guess he saw I had my camera and he was off.

What an awesome wing span this guy had. 

Playing along with 

And now for 

So glad to have Nancy back, Now I just have to get in the groove 
of posting randomness.  LOL  So here we go

1.  We are a little bit further up the California coast in San Luis Obispo

2.  We are making our way up to Oregon for our summer hosting job.
It starts on April 1.  Yep April fools day,  I hope that's not a bad sign.

3. I am pretty excited about this  hosting job as it is right on the Ocean.

4.  The draw back will be the towns that are close by are really small.
So it will be a drive to do our shopping.

5.  The best part is that it is only a 3 hour drive to Portland.
And we all know who's in Portland right.
My Daughter and SIL and my Grandson.

Thanks so much my friends
I do hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Till next time.

Hello lovely Friends

It's been a busy couple of weeks for us. 
We have been busy making our way up the state of California.
Man this is one long state and we aren't even half way up the state. 

But with relaxing views like this, we have been enjoying it every step of the way. 

We are parked in Lompoc, CA right now and sad to say there is no ocean view.

So we jump in our truck and find the closest beach to Lompoc, 
which is Jalama Beach.

This beach did not disappoint.

I can't think of a better way to spend the day than
walking the beach collecting shells and trying to get photo's of Birds.

Look at this guy.  It took me awhile to grab a shot of him.
I tried to look up what kind of bird this fella is and I came up with a Whimbrel.
He sure is fun to watch as he buries that beak into the sand looking for food. 

Then at the end of the day stopping at the beach cafe and grabbing a burger.
Life is simply sweet my friends.

This week over at Song-ography the song is 
Led Zeppelin's song,
A bit of a stretch but I have to say this was pretty heavenly.
Now only if they had a stairway here. 

Linking up with 


I also wanted to play with


There theme this week is
Black & White

So I am sharing a couple of my images Changed to B&W

Thanks so much for stopping by,
I do hope your week is off to a great start.

Hello my friends

I wanted to start off by saying
 so much for all your wonderful comments on my last post.
I sure did enjoy reading all your thoughts on
the subject of where you would like to live.


If you have been following me for awhile you probably know I love to take photos of
flowers, birds, bees, plants, trees, you get the idea I'm a bit of a nature freak. 

I'm pretty sure I like taking these types of photos because I love being outdoors and
I love all the natural light the outdoors offers.

Here in Blogland I do enjoy seeing all the beautiful still life photos
 that some of you guys create.  I used to do a bit more
 of the still life type of photos when I lived in a home with better lighting.
 In our little RV the light is not so good.

All that being said I still gave it a try.
When we were in Palm Springs we got to go out and pick a
whole lot of lemons with my hubbies Uncle and Aunt.
We had so many lemons I didn't know what to do with them all.
Of course we made some lemon-ade.

You know with all these lemons I had to take some photos of them.
It was fun playing around trying to get them to look pretty.

It still wasn't the the wonderful light like I used to have.
But with every window open and every light in the RV on,
they turned out alright.

Well a little update for those of you who like to
follow us around... we left Imperial beach and have landed
on a Military Base near Oceanside, California.
Camp Pendleton is a beautiful place to camp for a few days.
We are lucky to have friend who
are retired military who like to share these campsites with us.

Once again Thanks so much my friends
for all your kind comments. You guys are the best.
