Such a sweet site to see…

Hello to all out there..
I am back to show you some more of my daily photos..
I am so far behind on posting them.  But I have definitely been having fun keeping up
with my shots. 
So today not in any particular order are some flowers shots I have taken
over the last couple of weeks..

Day #259259.365
This here particular flower is in my back yard..  It is a Geranium.
I just love Geraniums and it seems like they do OK here in the desert heat..

Day #261261.365
 Here is a sunflower.. I just love them.. They are such a happy flower. 
I received a bunch of them from a little boy at school..  

Day #264264.365
 I really don't know what kind of flower this is.. 
This flower was in another big bouquet that I received from 
one of the other kids at school.. 
Do you know what it is?

Day #267267.365
 This photo was taken in front of a little shop we visited in 
San Clemente, CA.  Like I always say they have so many beautiful flowers all
over in California, One's you never see here in the desert.
I just love it. 

Day #268
This shot was taken from a tree that was in the campground that we
stayed at in Carlsbad, CA..  I have no idea what it is, But it sure does look cool.

So there are some pretty flower for you to see.. 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.. 
I appreciate all your sweet comments.

Who I saw at the Beach...

How is everyone doing?

I am back today to show you some photo I took while I was on vacation.
My hubby and I took a stroll on a pier on a beautiful sunny day in Oceanside CA..

I took my camera a long to see who I could catch!
All these shots were taken from the pier in Oceanside.

Day #266

Here is a shot of the pier.  
The very lone pier in Oceanside CA..

Of course something you expect to see at the ocean.  A surfer.. 
A lot of surfers in fact..


I guess these guy don't like to surf alone.. 

As you can see I am not the only one who was taking photos..
I was wondering if they were doing a photo shoot for a wedding.. 
What a perfect setting.. 

Now this is how I like to spend my time on a the beach..

This gal was also doing a photo shoot.
It was fun watching her pose..

So there you have it..  A fun day at the Beach..
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Hugs, Linda

Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

Hello my Friends.
So How is your weekend going?

I have to say mine is fabulous..  I am camping at the ocean for a week..
So life is pretty sweet!

I am back with some photos for Ashley's Scavenger Hunt..
I always have so much fun with this Hunt..  Every time I see the words for the new week
I think man I don't know if I can come up with anything..  Especially this week I was so 
busy getting ready for my trip.  But as the week goes on I am always thinking of the
words for the week and I always find just what  I need.. Well not always.. 
does that happen to you?  

So here we go

My Passion

My sweet little Grandson..  It really is hard to get a shot of him when he's
not sleeping..  Is it just me or is he the cutes...

I do have a second Passion
Some of you already know this but I am addicted to paper crafting and Mixed media Art..
I LOVE IT..  Definitely a passion of mine.. Right along with playing with my camera.
So much to do, so little time..  Hee Hee..

Sound of Music
These little guys can sing the sweetest song..

Inner Beauty 
My Daughter is even more beautiful on the inside..
Just ask anyone who knows her..

I had to pull this shot from my archives..  
I love this cross and I do wear it quite often..
I didn't receive it from anyone..  I had seen it and liked it so I bought it.
And that was at least 13 years ago.   And I still love it.

It was getting late and when I checked my watch it 12:00 SHARP..

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my photos..
If you want to play along or would just like to see what everyone else's shots
look like you can head on over to Ashley's Blog..

Thanks for another fun week Ashley!
