Perspective - A West Coast Road Trip Dedicated to Sirenita

What follows is a pictorial of our trip to San Francisco. I think I took about a thousand shots using various cameras. They are essentially arranged in chronological order, with some liberties taken. 

Where the sky meets the mountains. Big big sky.  

A father and his son look in wonder at the salt flats.

I think this is one of my favorites, taken the night before we left SF.

Looking down on the city. 

Old houses fascinate me. So unique. 

China Town was spectacular! We could have wandered this several block area for hours on end. Fascinating! 

A mermaid statue playing the harp. 

A stunning rose in the Mermaid's garden.

And flowers dripping beauty from the sun's rays.

I love this picture taken by Trig. The protective look on nana's face is haunting. Sirenita leaning into him with that big easy smile on her face. 

Shopping for plants, nana with a purse. 

Brothers. Nana's head is a bit over exposed. 

I am thankful that no monkeys jumped out at me because if they lived in California, they would certainly be in this tree.

Tiny lovely specs of color in the moss

Where is that red carpet?!?

A busy bee. 

From Just Thinking's bountiful glorious garden.

Green serenity - Smith River. Have you ever been in a place in nature where you thought you could just build a little shack and live right there in that space?

Stone wall, green trees and mist

Setting sun over the  Pacific. A first for me. 

Trig in deep thought

Mystical trees reaching into the heavens above, tickling the toes of infinity

That's me. Photo by Trig. 

Turquoise sky in the mist

Cow crossing on the California 1.

Attack of the killer grape vine!

On the last day, we stopped in Parker, Colorado and visited my daughter and her hubs. This picture captures their inner child really well I think. And speaking of children or future grand children, don't you think these two will make some gorgeous babies? I can't wait (but I will). Because dammit, that's all I can do.

Prescott the "grand" kitty. Here he is drugged and half asleep for the 600 mile trip home. 

17 days later we were back home and boy did it feel good to be out of the car. I'll never forget this trip and will carry the memories of Sirenita with me as long as I walk this earth. And perhaps, when it's time, I'll see her in that place often referred to as Heaven.

Bruce Cockburn's Tune " A Dream Like Mine" came to mind as I scrolled through:

When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can take you down
When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can push you around
Today I dream of how it used to be
Things were different before
The picture shifts to how it's going to be
Balance restored
When you know even for a moment
That it's your time
Then you can walk with the power
Of a thousand generations 
  
Beautiful rocks -- beautiful grass
Beautiful soil where they both combine
Beautiful river -- covering sky
Never thought of possession, but all this was mine
When you know even for a moment
That it's your time
Then you can walk with the power
Of a thousand generations

The pictures are spectacular and so is this line:  Mystical trees reaching into the heavens above, tickling the toes of infinity.

Thank youV. I love that one of nana and Sirenita. Trig took that one and it captures so much more than words can say. 

Wow AKA, those words do fit nicely.

Hi L. I liked that line too. That was the feeling I got when I walked into the forest, that they must reach into the heavens. It was breathtaking. 

Art, yes. I can't imagine the hell he's in right now watching the love of his life slip away.

Hi Jmac! So wished we had more time to visit and see more of the local sites. Happy that we had a chance to meet!

This is poignant and beautiful, Jenny. Thank you.

Thank you Rosi.

So beautiful. I agree with L in the SW, that line "toes of infinity" is a perfect description. Sirenita looks so unbelievably happy to be with you.
