10/30/10 Stormy Vines

Rain threatened again today, but never really arrived.  The colors in the vineyards are getting really gorgeous.

10/29/10 Rainy Day

Another rainy day - I do love the breaking clouds, though.

10/28/10 Chocolate Skulls

We decorated these Chocolate Skulls at a Day of the Dead party - mine is the pink and purple one!

10/27/10 Fall Vineyard

The last mad rush of harvest is happening right now, as the growers try to beat the rain which started again today.

10/26/10 Little Black Vase

I met the young artist who carved this glass vase, who is a petite young lady doing a very hard and physically demanding job.

10/26/10


Looked up from cooking and saw this beautiful sky. Grabbed my little camera....(again!) and just caught this color. Oh well, I guess I can't wear my camera around my neck constantly. Even though I WANT too!

RATS! The one day, I didn't take my good camera, we are driving along and I see a fricken EAGLE sitting by the side of the road. I yell at Gary to turn around and go back. By the time we got back there, the Eagle had flown into the tree. Would have been a GREAT shot with my good camera. But had to take it with my little one. I have NEVER seen a real Eagle close up. It was amazing!!! Lesson learned. NEVER go without my good camera............

10/25/10 Red Flowers

There are plenty of red flowers and berries of some kind in this bunch.

10/24/10 Oakland Skyline

Back home to the rainy dreary north after a weekend in the warm desert . . .

10/23/10 Santa Rosa Mountains

The light on the Santa Rosa Mountains is ever changing - here, shown in the background of some Pampas grass at the La Quinta Dunes golf course.

10/22/10 Hawaiian Sax

This sax player was fantastic at a jazz concert I went to with Lynda in La Quinta -  I loved how the stage lights washed the musicians in color.

10/22/10 SF Skyline

As I headed to the airport the sun broke through the rain clouds for only a moment. 

10/20/10 St. Francis Sunset

The St. Francis Winery is a great place to watch the sunset or moonrise.

10/19/10 Oops!

I heard a crash outside my office window.  This car had been hit by another car which pushed it into the Mexican restaurant across the street.

10/18/10 Point Vincente Lighthouse

I only had my Coolpix with me on this trip,  but I would love to go back to this spot with the big camera. 

10/17/10 Terranea Resort

This resort where I attended a conference in LA had this pretty view, which made me think of Linda and her weddings. But  the day after I took this shot the clouds broke and I realized that this actually has a fabulous view of Catalina Island, which you could not see one tiny bit on this day.

10/16/10 Lantana

One of my favorite perrenials, Lantana just flowers and flowers.

10/15/10 Barn

The colors and patterns on this barn, where I stopped to buy some strawberries,  intrigued me.

10/14/10 Cloudy Cows

Grabbed the camera when I saw these breaking clouds this morning. 

10/13/10 Another White Rose

I just love these roses!

10/12/10 Sonoma Sunset

This view of the Sonoma Mountains is from Julia's school parking lot at the Santa Rosa Jr. College campus in Petaluma.

10/11/10 Cyclamen

When I shot this cyclamen plant next to the window I did not think the window would turn out so orange, but it did.

10/10/10 Glass

I love visiting the glass blowers' studio during Art Trails, where I picked up some lovely glass.
