What a beautiful day in Soutthern California....Jeff's new camera is doing a wonderful job!
These pictures are impressive....guess I could not get my new iPhone to take a picture like this!
|I love this mission and all the swallows!|
I cannot say enough good things about Jeff's new camera!
What an amazing day…. I was picked up by my friends Larry & Carol Faragher who are in the Los Angeles area visiting for a couple of months. We heading down the coast to explore a little bit of California today. First we headed to Newport Beach where we go hung up for a while if a “Walk for the Cure” major detour. We finally made our way to Newport beach and the pier. It was a lot of fun walking the beach and checking out all the surfers. We spent a couple of hours there and headed to Balboa Island. We took the ferry over and then walked around the island. Then it was back over the ferry and on our way toward Laguna Beach. We eventually stopped for lunch and relaxed a bit. Our final stop was the Mission San Juan Capistrano. What a great stop!!! The historical ruins were great and so were all the beautiful flowers. I felt right back at home again after a long layover…. Here I was exploring, snapping way too many photos and even capturing a lot of lovely flowers along the way…. Feels like I am certainly ready for the ms Amsterdam and the adventures ahead. I am so ready for the Grand Pacific & Far East Voyage to begin tomorrow…. I am particularly excited to be reunited with my cruise family…. What a great day!!
BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!
