The View


The first day of March, 2015. Potters Marsh Boardwalk.

“The most beautiful view is the one I share with you.” ~Author Unknown

Remember my cellphone/camera issues from previous days? Yeah, we are back there again. Cleaning out the gallery of a zillion photos from my old Samsung G2 some how broke the camera. I tried using a micro-sd card to save photos to but none the less, I was only left with a broken picture icon.

We just replaced my sweets Moto X that I got him for Christmas, with an Iphone 4s because the screen shattered at work. Sometimes working heavy machinery can cause that to happen. My needs for a new cellphone are on the back burner, so recycled photos for posts again. It doesn’t help that I really am holding out for some great deal like on a Samsung Note 3 or 4…..

3 Barons Fair


Dancing about to begin at the 3 Barons Renaissance Fair. June 6th, 2015.

On Saturday, my sweet took me to the 3 Barons Renaissance Fair! We headed out right after work and just had a fabulous time! This photo is one of my sweet’s favorite pics that I took that day. It doesn’t do any justice to the great tents and decor set up, because it’s out in the wider clear area for the DANCING! It does show however, our beautiful Alaskan mountains and captures how lucky we feel to live here! It was a slightly rainy day, but for us it only added to the experience. More photos from that day to come in future posts.

Palm Trees

Palm trees

Palm trees that stood way above the houses and cars below. Sacramento, California. Beginning of April, 2015.

One of my biggest fascinations on my trip to California was, the trees. I had forgotten how many different types of trees that can grow in that state. Pretty sure my daughter was starting to think I was a little special with all my pointing at each tree I encountered. I couldn’t help it, the variety just boggled my mind, it was great.

I cropped the photo above, because people outside their homes with children and such are at the bottom. Really don’t like invading people’s privacy, so edited photo is what you get.

It was funny though. My whole visit, even as I was in a much larger city than I am used too – I felt like I was in the “country” the whole time. No mountains, no ocean, no creeks and woods.. it was all just flat land. Not much to look at in the sky, it was kind of depressing. Thank goodness for the trees!

We each need to make peace with our own memories. We have all done things that make us flinch. ~Surya Das



Fire Island in the not so far distance, on the left. Mid-April, 2015. Very strong but warm winds off the water.

It’s a Wonderful Thing


April 6, 2015. Sacramento, California. My birthday, out for a walk. No one ever looks up.

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. ~William Arthur Ward
