Another Fine Day

Mostly photos today.

I took this a few days ago.
For lack of anywhere else to post it,
I'm posting it here.

We had such a good time
with Russ and Donna.
They headed down the road this morning.
Sad for us,
happy for them,
being free and on the road.
On their last night here,
we took them into Capitola,
where we hit the sunset just about right.

Capitola boasts an old country style,
with brightly painted cottages.

If you click this,
you'll see I played with it a bit.
I like the dreamy look,
unreal, but it appeals to me.

Is this the great view?
We almost ate dinner here,
but decided to go with Carpo's.
It's our local favorite and a sure thing.
The food is always great.

One thing about sunset on the coast.
It happens so very fast,
changing from minute to minute.
First it was all red and pink,
but just for an instant.

Then, true twilight took over.

Someone left a perfect rosebud
stuck in the fence on the esplanade.

A great evening made better
because of the excellent company.

Just a note.
The first photo, the raindrop,
was taken with my Canon 7D.
All the rest were taken using my iPhone 4s.

I like your water droplet! That iPhone is something else. Capitola was simply the icing on the cake - loved it. Thanks again for your hospitality.

Love those photos, Kate. That first one was neat! That new phone of yours sure does a great job. It's fun having something that takes such great pictures and does everything else it does, too!! We sure had fun with you guys, and miss you too. We found some sunshine here and I opened up all the bays to help dry things out. Camping in the Redwoods is nice, but clammy when it's wet!!!

Looks like that iPhone is a winner. Why carry a camera too!

We are suitably impressed with the phone! Interesting place for a rosebud!
