By Ted Grussing
A little later this morning it is back on the road with stops to see a friend in Torrance, Malibu, Banning and hopefully La Quinta and then the drive home. Unlikely I will get home before 1 or 2AM on Wednesday so no missive and photo tomorrow, but will resume Wednesday night. Cannot think of a trip as fun as this has been in quite a while (except for last Thanksgiving). Spent the day visiting with friends I have not seen in quite a while … dinner at Dukes by the pier with a bevy of cousins … we do not distinguish by degrees … all family … all cousins … all enjoying the life granted us.
This is a shot of a Mandarin duck taken at San Diego Wildlife park … love that place. Very little time devoted to photography on this trip and very much time devoted to seeing friends and doing things. Next trip will be longer so I can do more of both, but with only 36 hours in Orange County not nearly enough time to see the friends I want to see or spend time with my camera in places where I can get wildlife and other subjects I enjoy shooting. So more trips in the offing.
Have a FANTASTIC day … thank you Bill :+) Life is so beautiful and so are most people … stick with them and let the others go … you will not change them.
Cheers … smiles … share them
A bird flies through the sky, and I fly with it. I am each pearl of moisture sparkling in the sun.
I lie lazy on the clouds. And I acknowledge my kinship with each winged thing.
I see all as one, and nothing repels me, as this new day climbs noiselessly out of the valley of the night.
Peace lies over the world and over the world of my soul.
