Around the Dominguez Gap

Around the Dominguez Gap

This week’s excursion took us back to the Dominguez Gap Wetlands. Although we have been to this trail many times before, we never completed the entire loop. Normally, we would turn back at the railroad bridge or when Desmond became stubborn and refused to move any further. Today was a very special day, because we […]

My mom is in town for the weekend and we thought it would be the perfect time to take her to the Aquarium!

So Much for Camping…

So Much for Camping…

Nothing says TIME TO GO like a looming fire cloud. At least we got to have one nice day in the Angeles National Forest before the Cabin Fire put an end to our weekend outdoors.

Happy Birthday Silva!

Happy Birthday Silva!

For her birthday, Silva invited Paul and I along for a duffy boat cruise in Newport Harbor. This was my first time on a duffy boat and it was definitely a lot of fun!

Ojai!

Ojai!

A few weekends ago, we headed for a quick mini-vacation up to Ojai, California. (If you saw the fire along the I-15 that weekend, believe me we were glad we chose Ojai. Vegas was our second choice.) This was my first visit to the small town. I had only known of it from passing road […]

Saturday in El Dorado

Saturday in El Dorado

Sorry, no lost city of gold here; just El Dorado Park, in the LBC! I was just thinking, I should try to capture more images of our dog, Desmond, while he is still fairly young. Unfortunately, he is faster than I and somehow, every time I pull out a camera he just ‘knows’ and shies […]

Santiago Creek-Wilderness Loop Trails

Santiago Creek-Wilderness Loop Trails

In an effort to take in more of the outdoors, we decided to explore the Santiago Creek-Wilderness Loop Trails in Santiago Oaks Regional Park just outside of Villa Park, CA. These are an amazing set of trails and like many descriptions, they take you through a variety of scenery. The first trail we followed let us up a […]

En route to Big Bear

En route to Big Bear

“Low visibility at 5000 feet. Drive carefully.” a friend’s text warned as we followed a distance behind, en route to Big Bear. Low visibility was correct. We had literally driven into a cloud. These are my favorite images, captured while driving up the CA18 & CA38.
