I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but cooked fruit is always delicious. These bubbling pears were from a friend’s Thanksgiving meal. We spent the weekend at in Gualala, California. Gualala is north of San Francisco along the Pacific coast a little south of Mendocino. I spent Thanksgiving there with my old friend Andrew a few years ago.
You know what’s really sweet? Old friends. I’ve known Andrew since 1988. Sweet.
From the same Thanksgiving we ate this pear upside-down cake:
This photo of Big Sur posted in response to today’s daily prompt, Horizon. I took a series of photos left-to-right and then pasted them together in Photoshop to make a panorama. I was fairly outdoorsy when I lived in California and always had my camera (Nikon D200) with me. Nowadays my biggest hobby is writing. Still, my trusty camera and lenses sit on the shelf, waiting for the day when I feel like taking a picture again. Odds are higher that I’ll take photos with my iPhone, and not lug around the heavy Nikon.
And another Big Sur coastline horizon:
I think rust is beautiful. I like the shades of teal and orange. I found this object near the San Francisco Bay in Mountain View, California. Posted in response to weekly photo challenge weathered.
Address: Bixby Creek Bridge, CA-1, Monterey, CA 93940
According to Wikipedia, Bixby Creek Bridge is one of the most photographed bridges in California due to its aesthetic design. Here’s my view of it.

I saw this scene while traveling a few years ago. I’m not really sure what’s going on at this motel. Why is there a dinosaur? Why is the dinosaur falling apart? The rates are good but I think this motel would give me the creeps.

This is the bottom of Wailua waterfall in Kauai, Hawaii. It was huge and rushing and loud. There were at least four signs that said KEEP OUT and DANGER and suchlike. One sign said PEOPLE HAVE DIED HERE. A local guy told us there was a trail and that we’d be A-OKAY, so naturally we hopped the fence. The hike was not too long, but it was very muddy and involved ropes attached to trees. At the bottom we discovered a beautiful rainbow, with a second shadow rainbow, and the entire population of Kauai’s mosquitos. The weather was pretty good on the way down. The last 20 feet on the way up it started raining cats and dogs. Hooray!
