Watery Wednesday- Mariposa Creek

I took this close up of rocks, water and moss just this morning in a creek near Mariposa and I liked how I could see through the water so clearly and the green moss is interesting. Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed taking it. For more Watery Wednesday photos, click here.

SkyWatch Friday- Lake Don Pedro

Big, billowy thunder clouds soar above Lake Don Pedro. This was taken last year but could easily be today. We have sunshine now but the clouds are moving in and more rain is expected later this afternoon. Happy SkyWatch Friday! For more SkyWatch Photos from all over the globe, click here.

Watery Wednesday- SF Shoreline

If it's Wednesday it must be Watery Wednesday! Going back to my SF trip in December: this is looking back at the San Francisco bay and skyline from Sausalito. The bridge to the left is the Bay Bridge. From the famous Ferry Building in SF we ferried across and walked through the quaint town of Sausalito then had a fabulous lunch at The Spinnaker Restaurant. It sits at the very edge of the inlet and has windows the whole length of the building that look out to SF and the bay. It was a little rainy and very overcast so it's a little gray but still a nice shot of SF. The ferry driver took us really close to Alcatraz Island. I've never toured it and have no desire to but it was cool to get so close. To see more Watery Wednesday photos, click here.

Rain, Rain, Go Away . . .

My girls, Sandy (R) and Dani (L)

I said it before, I know we need it! But wow, would I like to see the sun!
There is mud everywhere. The area behind the barn where I usually feed the horses is slop so I've moved them into another area even though it means they have to eat their hay off the ground. The picture above was a few days ago when the girls were just a little muddy. Now they are both mud all over- not just their faces.

I know they're not perfectly focused pictures but I thought they looked sweet together.

We said goodbye to Jack on Saturday. He went to his new home and hopefully he will start his training and get the attention that he deserves. We will miss him.
Sandy is now queen of the pasture and is enjoying being in charge. It's a first for her because she's always been on the bottom of the pecking order.
