...but this guy was fine with it!!!


There were musicians everywhere!


And then of course...the reason we were there...

Tasting wine and smelling the flowers along the way...
with music playing in the background...

A Weekend at the Albion River Inn...




Mendocino is a really lovely area of California to visit.
And the Albion River Inn is one of my very favorite places to stay!
Each room has a deck in back, overlooking this spectacular view.




Pretty awesome visit...
sitting on the deck overlooking where the river meets the ocean...
catching up with friends Steve and Sharron...


 Drinking a bit of wine....


...well...maybe a little more than a bit...


...and enjoying the sunsets!



Next post you'll see how we spent our day!!!

Color in the Sunset Sky...



When I lived in Mammoth Lakes California, in the 
Eastern Sierras, I was privy to lot's of glorious sunsets...
and clouds.

Cloud Series...


This glorious cloud is a combination of a thundercloud forming and the smoke from a nearby fire.


A silver lining to any forest fire is the spectacular
cloud formations and colors.


This one isn't from a fire...just a glorious sunset!



A lenticular cloud...known in Mammoth
as a Sierra Wave.




I'd love to hear what you think about these!

Can you see any of them framed as a single art piece?

Thanks for visiting and commenting!!!

South Africa...in B&W...




Thought I'd play around a bit with my Africa photos in B&W...


Ichabod Crane I presume?


"Huh?  D'you say somethin'?"


Double Trouble...


"I might not be King of the Jungle...
But you can call me Emperor..."


"Dumbo ain't got nothin' on me..."


A two-fer


"If I'm not Queen of the Jungle...
Just call me Princess..."


It's a Family Affair


"Rest assured," said Hercule Poirot.
"I am the best."
Agatha Christie 


"Really...I'm not crying...it's this darned dust in my eye..."
