Skywatch Friday – April 23, 2015 Edition

Today the skies are mostly clouds here in my part of the world.  I am choosing to share some photos from about a month ago on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.  We visited the Torrey Pines Gliderport.  It was spring break time so lots of activity.

This was the view opposite the sign.

 A few feet further and these were what we saw!

That’s right, folks jumping off of perfectly good land with nothing but a kite on their back!

Turns out there is a nude beach, a rarity in the US, just below this cliff.  Maybe that is the reason for jumping!

Wild Bird Wednesday 144

A recent visit to California yielded these photos of an Anna’s hummingbird.  This bird visited several times over the course of four days. It was a little skittish of my presence on its patio!

Good Day!!!

Been moving rather slowly since our return from an almost 2 week vacation to warmer climes.  Part of the time has been being an easy chair photo processing time.  Hope you will enjoy some of the photos from a visit to the dentist’s with my cousin.  No screaming or tooth extraction photos, just some photos of the flowers and plants in the parking lot and shade garden area.

As any person should do before a dental visit, we visited a Cuban bakery cafe for lunch.  Mmmmm, good food besides all the lovely pastries.

A sweet tooth's dream!

Who would have ever thought a trip to the dentist could be so filled with beauty!!!  But it was time to leave and cousin came looking for us.
