Journey of a body on this earth

The Golden State


Those of you who’ve been following me recently know I’ve been obsessed with skies.  Last evening we were watching TV and I looked outside our back door and saw the most incredible skies!  Living in the Bay Area during the summer usually means one thing and one thing only:  blue skies.  We don’t get many clouds this time of year and certainly rarely a storm.

While we didn’t get any rain last night, the skies filled with beautiful clouds over the hills.  The clouds were parted in some spots allowing blue to show through, and the sun cast the most beautiful color over our Golden State.  They call California the “Golden State” for a reason!  It’s BROWN in the summer, or more eloquently called, “golden”.

Hope you enjoy!
