Journey of a body on this earth


Beautiful Distractions

I need to be distracted today.  My beloved cat, Hobbes, is back at the vet again.  😦    He’s had a myriad of health issues in the last few years; mainly he’s just getting plain old at 17.   He’ll be 18 in January!   Right now the vet is waiting for the blood test results and we have an appointment at 6:30 this evening to go over the findings.   I’m coming to grips with the fact that he might not be with me too much longer.  But before I go there, I will wait to see what happens this evening when I meet with the vet.

In the meantime, I’m distracting myself with some pictures I took when we were in Carmel recently.  Here are they are for your viewing pleasure!  BY THE WAY, PLEASE CLICK ON THE PICTURES TO SEE THEM LARGER AND IN BETTER QUALITY!

Carmel by the Sea

All I can say is WOW.  Every time I go to Carmel, California, I’m amazed I live in such a diverse state with such incredible natural beauty.

We stayed at the Bernadus Lodge which was such a beautiful spot with fabulous food.  Oy the food!  One evening we sat by a huge outdoor fireplace and enjoyed the quiet night…..

By the Fire

The daytimes were filled with me taking pictures.  I haven’t had time to process too many, but here are just a few I’ve gotten to.  The first one here is my very first Daytime Long Exposure.  I didn’t actually spend too much time on it and plan on trying it again soon in the near future to become more proficient to capture a better shot.

Long Exposure

This one with the funny looking tree is called Ghost Tree which is south of the Lone Cypress.  I have a picture of that somewhere!

A path to the Pacific Ocean…ahhh….I really love my state!
