On Tuesday I took a drive to an area here in SLO County that is well known for fabulous wildflower displays. Not much going on. Wah! I got stuck on a winding road and all I can say about that is, it's a good thing I was driving and not a passenger. Did I mention I am very prone to motion sickness? So after wasting a couple of hours and $$$$ in gas, I drove back home empty handed.
Yesterday we had another wave of high winds come rolling in from the north. Our morning here was blustery and chilly, a little cloudy, and not very nice at all. I had some banking and other fun stuff to take care of and by noon I was tired of all that. So I took off again, this time headed toward the coast and the ever lovely Morro Bay.
Eureka!! I found a field of flowers, pulled over in my truck at a very convenient pullout (not always easy to find when I want to take photos), and delighted in the view. Want to see it? I know you do!
As my sister said, the greens of Spring are so fresh and so very different from the greens of Summer. We don't really have greens of Summer here in our part of the world, but I have to agree with her about Spring.
I went on to Morro Bay and the winds were whipping. I took about 200 photos and have yet to do much editing, but honestly it looks like most of them won't need too much. It was another 2-hour trip, but this one was so worth my time. I drove back, stopped for a tri-tip salad to take home, and felt very satisfied.
The forecast calls for another day of high winds and higher gusts. Maybe I should go back again:-)
