A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Being as I’ve had a bit of a writer’s block, I figured maybe some pictures would be fun. And, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then this blog should be about 8000 words long. Imagine all the reading time I’m saving you!

As I mentioned on Monday, I am in California visiting my parents. The Monterey Peninsula, where they live, is one of the most beautiful areas of the United States, at least in my humble opinion. Of course, if there weren’t so many people here, it’d be even prettier, but then again, you can’t blame them for wanting to enjoy the beauty with me.

I just can’t get enough of this!

Every view is different. And, it changes every minute!

This place along the 17-mile drive is called Point Joe. Always a good spot for a great view!

This picture is for my friend, Lindsay, and any other golfer that might enjoy the view. For those who are curious, this is the 14th tee of the Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Dunes Course. It too, is part of the 17-mile drive.

These little guys wander ALL over the neighborhood where my parents live. They can be pretty pesky but it does keep the drivers alert and traveling at a reasonable speed. They also add some fun deposits on the local golf courses to help keep the game interesting.

And, of course, since it’s already spring in California, the flowers are beautiful. For my Minnesota friends; soon, very soon, we’ll be seeing some of this. I, for one, can’t wait!

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers. This information will come in handy if you are looking to buy me something.

The California state wildflower is the poppy. They are blooming in abundance. Gorgeous!

I’m heading back to Minnesota tomorrow. I understand it’s been a warm week so I probably won’t be able to thrill you with a bunch of snow pictures. Rats! Maybe next year.
