Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

This is my last Golden Gate image….for awhile lol.   You know how I love this bridge!

I’m a day early with my holiday wishes, but I wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, to those who celebrate it, while I take a break for the holiday.   I might pop on to check your posts but won’t be posting anything new for at least a week.   So enjoy that turkey and cranberries!  See you soon!

Bodega Bay

The other day Dave and I went to Bodega Bay and oh what glorious weather we had!  It can be very foggy and cold there so when it’s nice out, it’s worth a trip there to enjoy the beauty without the inclement weather.

You might recognize the name Bodega Bay because Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” was filmed there.  We didn’t go up there to be attacked by birds though haha….I wanted to take a picture of a fishing vessel that had run ashore on Salmon Creek Beach just a couple of months ago in September.  I had seen pictures of this boat just a few weeks ago where the vessel was a lot more vertical.  It seems the waves are making it tip a bit and I’m glad I was able to get it before the whole thing possibly goes sideways!

Should you wish to read about how the boat was abandoned and how the captain tried to flee, you can read about the boat and what happened here:  https://goo.gl/evirI4.  I’ve also included a small gallery of iPhone photos just for fun.  They are not that great but I thought you might be interested and I’ve included a map to show where Bodega Bay is in relation to San Francisco.

Emeryville Marina

A few days ago my camera club and I went to the Emeryville Marina to take pictures.   Zooming into the Golden Gate Bridge would’ve been ok, but I knew that’s what others would do and I wanted to do something different.  Of course!  So I came up with this.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
