Just after publishing my previous post about Bruhel Point, I saw a Facebook post from the Mendocino County Tourism Commission with the tag line “Room to Roam,” and I thought it was really appropriate for my final group of photos from our outing there last May. As I mentioned before, we had the whole area to ourselves when we discovered […]
As I look over the time stamps of the photos I shot at Bruhel Point, it’s hard to believe we were there for only an hour! As soon as I got out of the car, I knew I was going to like this spot right away. I could see the ocean, and the trail that led down the hill was […]
I started going through some photos of Rodman Slough County Park (on the north end of Clear Lake) shot over the past three years and was surprised to see how many I had never blogged before. The trail there is short, but it takes you to the top of a ridge and back down again. Spend a few minutes exploring […]
WordPress really managed to confuse me this morning as I looked back to confirm that I was indeed on Week 20 of this particular series: it seems that I created Week 19 a little bit ahead of schedule — back in mid May. For a few minutes there I couldn’t find it on my list of published posts and started […]
In the middle of the night I had what seemed at the time a brilliant inspiration for Throwback Thursday, although I remember thinking it would take a fair bit of work to put together. Alas, when I woke up this morning I had absolutely no clue what that fantastic idea may have been (and maybe it’s just as well)! So […]
It’s a tough life as I try to make the most of my handful of days on the Mendocino coast. While I’m having a blast shooting the profusion of wildflowers and spotting new (to me) butterflies, I’m missing out on the chance to just sit and gaze at the ocean for hours at a time. Difficult choices, but I’ll try […]
The colors in our photographer’s garden were really amazing and beautiful, and I’m not surprised she spent so much time filling a photo album with these pictures. Several of the blooms were already familiar to me, but there are some that I don’t recall seeing before, like the delicate Alstromeria above, also known by the name Peruvian lily.
The last time I was in this part of Lake Berryessa, around Steele Canyon, was back in October 2004,when the Big Guy was fishing in a two-day bass tournament that launched here. Although I only have vague memories of how different everything looked back then, I do recall the date because his second-place trophy is hanging on our livingroom wall! […]
More beautiful blooms from the photographer’s garden — mostly roses, with a surprise Tiger Lily at the end.
