Place: Nostalgia for Mission San Diego...........

I have often told how Mission San Diego, the old church used to be hangout during our  San Diego stay..........
For three years, I played, roamed, obtained serenity in this place.......
Its some pictures on a rainy day......

Place: Hiking in Red rock canyon, Orange county........

Some days back, in spring actually, we took a hike in Red rock canyon in our neighborhood in Orange county.......

The ground was carpeted in velvety grass......

The hills and canyons too........

There were patches of poppy, and lupine.......

Then we reached the destination......a small pocket of sedimentary rock that reminded of Zion National Park, Utah.......



Even that of Bryce National Park, Utah.......

My spouse scanning the caves, and hollows.......

It was a pleasant hiking, barely ten miles from our house......
The following day was our sixth wedding anniversary...we stopped at an IHOP to gorge on pancakes...

Observation: In memory of a loved one.........

We came across the bench with flower vase while roaming the the arboretum of the University of Washington, in Seattle......

In the memory of a loved one, I guess.........

Observation: Random act of kindness.....

Such surprising, little humanitarian things makes me happy......
The other day, on my morning walk,  I saw  this ripe banana tucked in the California pepper tree, for a squirrel or a bird to feed on...........

Health: Plush toys as dust allergen gatherer.......

Like many others, I was fond of collecting plush toys.....they are cosy, and impart warmth to the house..
But, then they gathered dust and led to respiratory hypersensitivity...

There was this huge bear, I had bought from COSTCO, just days after coming to the USA..I would cuddle with it...I will make it wear some of my scarfs...

For the health concern, my spouse dumped all the toys, including this one in the trash bin....

Observation: Eroding bluffs at Laguna beach........

After half a decade of drought, rain came to California.......but, then the fury was such that it causes widespread damage....dam destruction to bridge collapsing..

Here are some shots of the unstable bluff breaking away in Laguna beach.........

Heartwarming...

An open-air concert in the neighborhood...

A good old-fashioned free concert by the lake.....

Under the shade of elms and sycamores....
