V-Day!!! ...Southern California/Birmingham, Alabama style!!!

In the end of April, Virginia of Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo fame came to Southern California to visit for a few days and had a whirlwind tour of some of the hottest spots in SoCal!!! We started at the Huntington Library where Virginia got to show us all up with her outstanding shots of the gardens,here, and our group, here and here...

Soooo, not to be out done by Ms. V, I got a couple of shots of Ms Laurie (Glimpses of South Pasadena Daily City Blog) and Raine, the recent birthday girl...

the group with the decent docent of Altadena Hiker fame, Karin Bugge...

and a quick capture of Petrea, of Pasadena Daily Photo fame...

hugs for Mama Laurie and kidlet Raine...

and our fine feathered friend by the pond at the Huntington...

on a quick walk to the tea room for high tea...
Petrea, Virginia and Judy, Virginia's hostess with the mostest!!!

Ms Tash of Palos Verdes Daily Photo had her camera to her eye as often as Ms V!!!

and did you really think anyone in this group would not have a camera???

Mr. Earl...basking in the delight of being in the company of all these crazy women!!!

On our way out of the gardens...Virginia had to get in just one more shot!!!

Then on to:
Dinner at Bistro de La Gare in So Pas
Lunch the next day at Villa Sorriso in Pasadena Norte...
A walk around Ambassador College grounds...
Kaldi's in South Pasadena...
And the bistro at Casa de Chieftess in Glendale...

Whew!!! I'm exhausted!!! For more photos...be sure and check in with each of this crazy crew on their fab blogs...


  1. We would have enjoyed your company Wayne!!! I know Mr. Earl could've used some back up with all us crazy ladies!!!

  2. How nice of you and the gang to take her around town. Great shots!

  3. Wish she could have been here for your tour of city hall...I know she would have enjoyed it!!!

  4. No wonder you were exhausted. Sounds like you all had fun.

  5. I've finally managed to work off one or two plates of the escargot...

  6. We had a ball Margaret!!!

    Hiker...why is it that I seem to always need a towel to wipe off the screen of my computer whenever you comment???!!! You make my day...regularly!!!

  7. Did I tell you that your photos of V are marvelous?! I like the action shot of me too.

  8. Thanks Tash!!! I thought the one of you in action was perfect...every time I turned around, you were off snapping away!!!

  9. Well where on earth have I been? Good grief I'm most flattered to have this wonderful post dedicated to my visit. YOU ALL were the most wonderful hostesses/host ever. I loved see your wonderful cities. I can hardly wait to come back for more FUN!
