Our Monterey Bay Aquarium Adventure

I am still reminiscing about our vacation.

Monterey is one of my favorite places on Earth.

I love the scuba diving.

I love the fresh air.

I love the mild summer days.

And I love the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The 40-Foot Tall Dancing Lady

The 40-Foot Tall Dancing Woman At Treasure Island, San Francisco

Treasure Island is on our list of spots-to-go for friends and family who want to see the area when they come to visit.

I’ve been to Treasure Island many times before.

When we drove in and I saw this (newly installed) lovely dancing lady, she took my breath away.  I hopped out of the car and snapped 100+ pics.


Yea, I was that excited!

Long story short, I accidentally deleted all but FOUR of the pics.  This just so happens to be one of my favorite shots, but I sure wish I had the luxury of ruthless scrutiny.

You’ll be seeing more of this lovely lady.  I’m going back for a night shot one of these days!

This 40-foot Dancing Lady came from Burning Man.

A Very Cherry Day

How’s everyone doing?  We had a weekend of family fun.

Our friends had the great idea to go cherry pickin’ and invited us along.

We went in search of these beauties.

Cherry Goodness

I can’t believe we are just now going cherry pickin’!

After all, The Hub and I love cherries so much, we served them with our wedding cake.

Our Wedding Cake

Our journey to cherry goodness was a very scenic one.

We drove through miles and miles of windmills.
