Sea Gulls on a railing...
Yesterday afternoon after work I had a chance to go for what was a very brisk ocean walk. The wind was cold and steady off of the Northern Pacific Ocean. I came up to these sea gulls who had no intention on moving because of my approach. Methinks they were cold too?
The fog came in yesterday...
For the time being, here along the coast, the days of warm sunlight are gone for the fog came in yesterday. As I gaze out of my living room window is see a cool gray sky. I wish that gray sky were loaded with rain but it is not and the long range weather forecast says "no rain."
Normal weather here this time of the year (February) is cool and rainy...and I have even seen it snow at times. To have temps daily in the mid-70s is kind of freaky. To have fog which announces that we are actually in a summer weather pattern is even freakier.
Monday morning is dawning clear and warm once again in this rain starved Bay Area. We can't change the weather so our only choice is to enjoy it. My being yearns to be able to have one extra cup of coffee while on the patio watching the sunlight play across the San Pedro Mountains. Instead, it is time to go to work and a few minutes from now, I will dash out of here to my job...which is not a bad job...but...but today I just want to linger awhile.
A day for roses...
Sunrise on the bay...

The acacias are blooming!
It was a wildly raining weekend here along the coast with gusts of wind clocked at 60 MPH. Because of the weather, it was also a good weekend to stay at home with a fire burning in the fireplace, curled up with a good book (or watching a movie), and relishing the peace of being at home with no plans.
This picture was taken quite a few years ago with my Minolta 450 SLR camera. It captured the sun with storm clouds. It is kind of a haunting picture is it not?
Family, friends and home are the treasures that bring me the most pleasure. Through my blog, I wish to share part of my life and heart with readers.
