Just a Few Photos

Hi everyone.   I've been hibernating too much this week as we've had a heat wave.   This has been a heat wave with monsoon conditions, like Arizona has in the late summer.   It's not normal for us and we don't like it one bit.   Looking forward to Autumn, my favorite season.

Besides the new header photo, taken mid-week from behind our house, I took a few at the coast when I drove over to spend a couple hours breathing healthy air.   Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler and we're heading to the coast again for a nice walk at Moonstone Beach in Cambria.

This is what my friend got when she didn't pick all her artichokes.

Looking off the San Simeon Pier


The males are still on the beach at Piedras Blancas, molting and making less of a fuss now that the females are gone.   


Like I said, they're molting.


I'm making progress on the kitchen remodel, working with a designer and finally nailing down choices on cabinets and countertops.   Now I wait for the bids to come in and then we'll see if it's all feasible.   I hope so because I think it will be beautiful if it all comes together like this.   

Anyway, just dropped by for a few minutes to say Hi and share a few visuals of life here on the Central Coast.   Have a great weekend.

Love the new header (oh, I just realized I need to update mine since it is a new month!) and the view of the sea is just so calming.
Hope things cool off for you, soon!

gorgeous shots ... what ever happened with the spots on your lens? did you take the camera in or did you find a way to get rid of them .. i have several which i thought were on a lens but after switching lenses i find they persist so it must be the camera ... what to do?????
Add me to the fan club for your new header and photos! I had no idea that seals molted--I'm such a country girl I guess!

I do hope that the rain comes for you, and that you're enjoying your weekend, no matter what the weather! Take care!!

I took a drive along the coast this past Sunday. Visited my son at the Pebble Beach Firehouse on the 17 Mile Drive, Point Lobos and then drove down to Pfeiffer State Park in Big Sur. Wondering why you have never posted a photo of McWay Falls? It was beautiful but I bet if we were not in a drought if would have been even more beautiful.

beautiful photos….but oh those faces are funny :)
Do you grow artichokes and do you eat and enjoy artichokes?
"Autumn Sky Ranch" has been included in our A Sunday Drive. Be assured that we hope this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.
