Travel theme: Statues

April 1st, 2014

My mind is wandering. I am ready for another travel adventure. Anywhere but here. Some place sunny.

St. Petersburg was quite lovely in September. My Russian colleagues thought I needed a heavier coat when it rained. The wet weather balanced out with the balmy last days of summer, melting into autumn.

I also enjoyed summer in Montreal.

The cobblestone streets of Old Montreal reminded me of Paris.

I visited the rainforest inside the California Academy of Sciences last month.
It was my first trip.

I loved the butterflies.

One of the most beautiful spots inside the California Academy of Sciences: the aquariums.

I can sit here in here for hours, watching fish swim.

Parents soothe babies. Couples sneak kisses. Kids play tag. Tourists adjust smartphone flashes.

The fish just keep on swimming.

Photo Friday: Mobile Phone Photo

July 22nd, 2013

Beautiful sunflowers dazzled me in San Francisco’s Marina District.

I used my iPhone 4 to snap these photos.

I had visions of wandering thru sunflower fields when I lived in Kansas. I didn’t find any until I was about to move back to California.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

July 16th, 2013

I ended up in the newsroom twice on Independence Day.
Sunrise on July 4
I watched the sunrise over the Bay Bridge after I left the control booth. This view in the lobby is my moment of zen after producing a 90-minute news show.

Sixteen hours later, my Corolla crawled thru post-fireworks traffic on the Embarcadero. Then I walked thru the lobby for my next graveyard shift.

Outside of the newsroom, I like watching the sunset at the Moonraker in Pacifica.
Sidecar and sunset in #pacifica. I love living so close to the ocean!

Easter Eve Dinner

April 2nd, 2013

I had to work a graveyard shift starting on Easter. So we celebrated the holiday early with my parents.

The smells of braised meat in the oven made Daisy a little crazy.

Before dinner, we wandered around San Francisco.
