Gosh summer just makes me want to flake on all my responsibilities, rip off all my clothes and run wild in the fields and rivers and mountains and beaches. It looks like this wish is going to be coming true. This weekend, I embark on my annual tour de l'ouest, visiting family and friends in California for two weeks. It will be another whirlwind visit and my calendar is full day and night with various engagements. Three days in Vegas and 4 days camping in Big Sur figure into the agenda.
What's more is that I have my new camera waiting for me. I decided to go ahead and get this one and had it shipped to California. So this is the last week with my trusty Olympus 1.3 megapixel camera from 1998. Here are a few pics I took yesterday at the Botanical garden. (I've already gone thrice!)
This is not a new hairdo. Spouse said, "hey your hair looks good that way" the other day when I got out of the shower. So I left it. This is post bikeride to the garden.
We toured the greenhouses. I am in love with the orchid house, and tropical garden.
There are several bonsai gardens and exhibits. Bonsai rate high on my cool meter.
I'm a little distracted this week due to the upcoming vacation. In fact, sometimes the anticipation ends up being a better time than the actual vacation. (Well, not if I win ten grand in Vegas.)
