The Bay


I’m working my way through the stash of photos that have been languishing on my external hard drive. These pictures are from one of my winter visits to the San Francisco Bay Area a.k.a. my sister’s house! I love when I get to go and spend time with her! She and her husband always make me feel so welcome. During my visit on this particular trip I had the chance to meet-up with an old high school friend who lives in Sacremento. She and her son drove down to Marin and picked me up. We then spent our day together at the Marin Headlands.

Leapin’ Lizards!


We love to have “fun” with the grandkids! You know … play practical jokes. So, on a recent shopping trip we stumbled upon these very life-like lizards, frogs, snakes, etc and couldn’t resist the urge to buy a bag full! What fun we had laughing at the “surprise” we would have on their next visit. The critters were place very strategically on the front porch ¬†and along the walkway (and a snake or two were “lying in wait” in the bedroom … but THAT is a story for another day!)
