365 project day 6/23

Mist, fog, & humidity are some of the weather conditions that help create some of the best shots. Today will be a scorcher in Connecticut, but getting up early to take pictures was actually very enjoyable!

365 project day 6/22

Last day of school. Daughter was so excited she would be a senior in HS now! She drove to her friend's house and on the way over got rear-ended by an elderly driver. Thank God no one was hurt. I'm not sure this driver should be on the road anymore.

365 project day 6/21

A beautiful reminder of a student who is moving - some jewelry made by his mother for me.

365 project day 6/16

June 16th is always a very important day for Bud and me. I'm a big believer in destiny and this photo of a walking path in Florida, near Anthony and Tom's house depicts my philosophy of life. Keep walking on the path I'm on to see where my life leads me - it's usually just exactly where I need to be....

365 project day 6/14

Red Box is the new Blockbuster Video. $1.00 gets you a fairly new release for 24 hours. All at the grocery store. Sure with I thought of that idea - I'd be a wealthy woman!!

365 project day 6/13

I swear I should have been a Travel Agent. Nothing gets me more jazzed than planning trips. Our next adventure is to Vienna, Austria, and Prague, Czech Republic - where we will celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary.

365 project day 6/12

It's hard to believe we are drinking hot chocolate on June 12th, but it's a cold, rainy June Saturday here in Connecticut. Going to watch "Sweet Home Alabama" a DVD I bought from my friend Mary Lou at her tag sale today. Thanks ML!

365 project day 6/11

We hit San Diego during "June Gloom" which means 1 - 2 hours of sun a day and temps in the low 70's. The water temp is about 65 degrees, which is pretty much what Cape Cod water is like at this time of year. The overcast day makes for great opportunities for a photographer. The ocean towns have boardwalks up and down the beach where you can enjoy the views.

365 project day 6/10

After flying into LAX, we drove to Hollywood and saw some of the sights such the walk of the stars, Rodeo Drive, and the funky West Hollywood section. No celebrity sightings there, however, we did have one of the "Housewives of Orange County" at our hotel. Meg and Jill noticed her sitting with a guy. We googled her and sure enough it was her. We found out later she ran in the Rock and Roll Marathon like Bud.

365 project day 6/9

They look like natural's walking their surf boards out on Pacific Beach!

365 project day 6/8

Meg's dream to try surfing came to pass. Jill was game too! The wet suits kept them warm and they really got the hang of it! It was a blast to watch them surfing in southern CA.

365 project day 6/7

We always try to stop in all the Hard Rock Cafe's we come across - this one was in the Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego. Mick Jagger takes center stage in one of the restaurants.

365 project day 6/6

Here is Bud after completing the Rock N' Roll Marathon, San Diego, CA! It was his goal when he turned 50 to run a marathon and we are so proud of him!!

365 project day 6/5

My new favorite breakfast place called Cafe 222, San Diego, serves a mouth watering peanut butter & banana french toast. This dish was served to Food Network Star, Bobby Flay and was featured on the TV show "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" I ate there 3 out of 4 mornings!!

365 project day 6/4

Awesome view from our hotel room on the 21st floor San Diego, CA - Coronado Bridge in the distance.

365 project day 6/3

I've had this Pumpkin Pancake mix from Trader Joe's for a while. We all agreed they are either going to be really good or just plain bad. 3 out of 4 gave a thumbs up!

365 project day 6/2

Meg and Gracie - hanging out on a hot, sunny day watching life go by....
