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 
Teresa's


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.

HUGS~

So happy you did post twice this week... always love seeing your fabulous photos. Gorgeous Morning Glories!!!

I've been meaning to ask you, Linda - what lens do you use? I don't often ask that of people, and don't mean to pry. I've just love your photos and have been curious on many occasions. :)
We hope to explore as far south as San Luis Obispo when we fly into San Fransisco next month.
I'm excited for you and your summer plans, the Oregon Coast is my favorite! Sounds wonderful.

I was extremely delighted to see the morning glories. My favorite and the reason why...I have fond, fond memories of my mom growing them. Great fence pics.
Enjoy this lovely day.

Beautiful fence-climbing morning glories. Love seeing the birds too.

Wonderful selection here today. That morning glory on the fence is a gorgeous color. Loved the Heron watching you from behind the fence.

Ruth Kelly said...

Never seen a red finch but we get yellow ones here.

Becca said...

Hi Linda! Lovely shots! The Blue Heron is an amazing bird to watch isn't it? I can still remember picking my jaw off of the ground when I walked out on our deck and saw one on the neighbor's roof! He even came back the next day...posed for a few shots, then flew off with those large lovely wings! Great random 5!

Karen S. said...

Your birds and fences are superb, but oh my I am such a fan of morning glories. How beautiful they are. Thanks for the pleasant views.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Your photos are gorgeous! I love love love that blue heron!!!!

Davi said...

Morning Glories are so beautiful with their bold color and delicate flower! The little finch are too cute and I love the one of the Heron!! Only 3 hours from Portland, you are a lucky girl!my friend! Looks like there is going to be some Gramma time coming up :)

Jill Foley said...

Oh...yay! You'll be in Oregon for the summer...where exactly? I'd love to meet you if possible.

Sometimes we have blue herons just across the fence in our yard, too - but I never have my camera with me. Today I've had my eye on a big raccoon that's up in a tree.

Tracy said...

LOL I already knew where you were headed when you said you were going north. Morning glories are a fave of mine from childhood. They're so free spirited just popping up wherever. Great snaps of the heron too. Safe travels! Hugs!

Sylvia said...

Fabulous photo's as always, Linda, I do love Morning Glories! Wish I had some here! Love the birds as well...so great you are getting closer to your daughter and that cute grandson! Haven't seen photo's of him in a while! Happy camping! Hugs from Texas!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Wonderful post with amazing photos!

Margaret Adamson said...

Love the birds on the fences and the lovely first shot.

Barbara said...

Morning glory is one of my favorite vines. I still remember them from when I was a kid and one was wrapped around our mailbox. Beautiful CA post and now you are in my last residence south of SLO, in Arroyo Grande. Best downtown coffee shop there on main street. Wonderful cinnamon buns homemade.

Audrey Pettit said...

Ooh, San Luis Obispo!! It's so pretty there! I do hope you are enjoying yourself! Love that you are working your way up the coast, on your way to Oregon. What a fabulous trip. And LOVE your gorgeous "fence" photos. The morning glories are so sweet, and I love your bird shots. We get some Great Blue Herons here and they always fill me with awe! TFS, and have a great weekend!

Terry said...

Oh the birds are so lovely, Linda! How fun to spend the summer in OR and so close to those special Portland people! We are going there again end of April, via the big bird in the sky! I so want to do a road trip one day! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs!

thewovenspoke said...

Beautiful photos, also I am envious of you going to Oregon I just spent 9 months there but had to come back to the desert for family obligations. Have a wonderful summer.

Ida said...

Where on the OR coast are you hosting? - The towns are small but they are close together. Florence is fairly good sized though so you shouldn't have a problem shopping depending on where you are at.
Yep Portland is close by but still a bit of a drive.

Kelly Kardos said...

That Heron is a beauty and that wing span is pretty impressive. Isn't it nice to have Nancy back? Oregon is one place we are considering retiring to. Frankie and I may try to get up there over spring break. Happy travels!

Snap said...

Wonderful shots ... all things I love ... Morning Glories and birds .. especially the great blue .. magnificent. You'll do fine in your hosting job ... nice and close to the grand ... close but not too close! Ha! Happy Friday!

Marie said...

Nice Friday Five! Enjoy your summer! Loved the photos of your morning glories and birds!

Ros Crawford said...

Wonderful photos!! I do hope you get to see your sweet grandson and family soon ... Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

Barb said...

Morning glories are...glorious! I'm wondering now where your hosting will be? I loved many of the beach towns in Oregon when we did the coast a few years ago. Yachats was so beautiful with its tide pools and water spouts coming up from the rocks. Of course, we liked visiting Portland and vicinity, too. Keep enjoying your trip!

Rose said...

I always thing the Great Blue Herons are great! They have such an awesome wingspan, and such piercing eyes...

Oh, I can only imagine your anticipation at being closer to your grandson.

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

So glad to know you're keeping well and enjoying the ride! And your photos are as stunning as always. Big hugs my friend!

Mona Pendleton said...

Beautiful photos Linda! Such a wonderful world that we live in! Thanks for sharing!

Charlene said...

Great to see you again!! LOVE the morning glorys and pics my friend!

Gail Dixon said...

Beautiful shots of the morning glories!! So glad you are making your way up the coast. The Oregon gig sounds amazing. A little jealous that you will be getting to Portland before me. I'm going in Sept. and can hardly wait to see my daughter!

Gay Peplow said...

Stunning wild bird photos Linda, you are managing to capture some wonderful images, glad you're having fun :D xx

Linda Breedlove said...

Hey, Linda... I'm stopping back again to tell you thanks for your lovely comment and to remind you that you're the one who got me started into art journaling several years back. Thanks, my friend! Your journaling was always an inspiration!
Have a fabulous week!

Kamana said...

Awesome fence photos! Your hosting job sounds very cool - and a bonus to be close (well, closer?) to your daughter and grandson! Happy a lovely week, Linda!

Being so close to the Ocean and to your daughter and grandbaby ~ how wonderful! It doesn't get much better than that huh? Excellent!
