Catching Up

A-I've had a cold
B-the auction has been unavailable
C-it's been raining
D-we've had guests

Pick one and use it for the reason
I haven't been posting!

In any case, they're all true, plus, I just haven't had a whole lot to report.

We've been really enjoying visiting with our Lazy Daze friends, and sadly, they're leaving tomorrow. BUT, the good news is that we're got online friends coming next week. Theyll be driving home from picking up their brand new 2011 31 foot twin bed Lazy Daze! We've been communicating by phone and email for a while now and I can hardly wait to meet them. It's always fun to meet online friends, don't you think? And I can't wait to see the new rig.

Meanwhile, we did have a couple of days of beautiful weather and we spent a good deal of it showing our friends around Santa Cruz. Brad is a dedicated metal detector person (whatever that title is eludes me) and he talked Terry into going out with him a couple of days.

Here they are all suited up.

We dropped them off, then went out looking
for photo opportunities.
We found one,
right on the cliffs overlooking
where they were searching.

For some reason,
I've never been to this tiny park before.
Look at this view!

Here's the view in another direction.

In addition to a great view,
there are tons of beautiful flowers
hanging from the cliffs.

These beauties are growing
all along the coastline.
I don't know what they're called,
but I love them.

I know it's kind of boring
to always post pictures of flowers,
but I just think they're so perfect.

I also have a thing for palm trees.
Fortunately, I wasn't driving
so I was able to stick my head out the window
for this shot.

And for whatever reason,
I kept going back to this shot.
Again, it was taken from a moving car.
I guess I just like the composition?

That's it for tonight.
Hopefully we can take a carload
to the auction tomorrow
and get back on track!

That little park looks delightful and I love the shot of the palm tree. Could those hotpink/red flowers be some variety of verbena? At any rate, they're pretty. Now get back to work so you can take another day off next week lol!!

I think that one of the flowers is "Red Hot Poker". I had one once upon a time, and loved seeing them bloom. Nice park.....
