One Happy Crowd

These White Pelicans can fly and float anywhere they like, but they all seem pretty happy to crowd onto a tiny sandbar, wing to wing with one another. This image shows only a third of the line of white pelicans gathered at J.N. Ding Darling Nature Preserve on a sunny Sunday morning.

Iconic Big Sur

Some days you are just plain lucky, and the Pacific coast fog takes a day off. The day we drove south of Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea was a special sunny day. As we looked south toward the bridge, we could see for miles along the rocky Pacific coast.

How lucky can you be to drive Big Sur on the California coast on a sunny September afternoon?

Stay tuned to this blog to see more photographs of the beautiful California coast from my recent trip. I will share lots of ideas to help you plan your next trip.

Naples Yacht Club

It’s no wonder that Naples residents are a happy population. With blue skies, warm temperatures and lush landscaping the norm, it’s hard not to wake up happy.  Docked at the Naples Yacht Club pier today is a lovely vessel called “Good Fortune.”
