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.
