I’ll be away at a workshop in beautiful San Francisco until March 17 and won’t be able to post any new stories or photos during my absence. See you in about two week! 🙂
Just in case you have been wondering, I am back from a trip to San Francisco, California, but I am trying to shake off a nasty cold. I became sick only two days before my departure.
Of course, I had to board my plane with this cold, which resulted in airplane ears that don’t want to go away. Now it’s all remedies, remedies, more remedies, and plenty of fluids and rest.
I promise you, I’ll post some pictures of my West Coast adventures as soon as I feel more energetic! So, please check back again soon!
Sometimes we come across writings in the sand at the beach of a person’s declaration of love for another. It is very seldom, though, that we are lucky enough to watch the actual act of the writing and unfolding of the love story. This is what I was privileged enough to witness the last time that I visited San Francisco, CA. What a happy story!
My best wishes go out to Amy and the young man who loves her!
While visiting the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA a couple of Saturdays ago, the weather was sunny, and everything was quiet and peaceful. I watched lovers in a rowboat on the lake. She in broad-rimmed hat, relaxed and enjoying the scenery, occasionally smiling at him in approval. He rowing hard and rhythmically and, for that smile, ready to take her anywhere her heart desired.
Then I saw two ducks, a male and a female. It was clear, young girl loved boy, and boy loved young girl even more.
And, as no story is ever entirely happy and uncomplicated, other boys seemed to love young girl, too!
It wasn’t long before this turned into an argument.
Then a chase ensued, whereby friends chimed in to help settle the dispute.
The flapping of wings and quacking caused quite a commotion. People looked up and watched.
Meanwhile, young girl waited patiently.
After a while, she got bored and decided to walk up the bank of the lake and check out my camera.
Finally, her hero returned victoriously, but with a wound and a few feathers missing on his chest.
He had to fight for what he so dearly loved and cherished, but it did not take him long to forget all about it. Young girl was his to keep.
All the signs are there: spring has definitely arrived at the Golden Gate Park!
There is something irresistible about the Golden Gate Bridge. Tourists and locals alike feel compelled to photograph it from every direction, angle, and vantage point they can think of. I am no different. There has not been one visit to San Francisco where I did not photograph the Golden Gate Bridge.
I am back from my workshop in San Francisco, California and have lots of photos of my adventures to share with you. Today I’d like to show you the first phenomenal views from Mount Tamalpais in Marin County on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. This group of young hikers is watching a beautiful, unobstructed sunset from their perch overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
