Sometimes I find it difficult to blog on a regular basis. I know I should. I am indeed well intended, but sometimes I can't get it all together. Or perhaps I just need a cocktail instead, or maybe I need to just go to bed or perhaps there is just too much good stuff out there to focus on just one thing, blah, blah , blah..... I have so many images lined up and ready to go, sometimes it seems that I just run out of stuff to say, or are too tired or something. OK, that's it. Thanks for listening and helping to alleviate a bit of my blogging (or lack thereof) guilt.
Anyhoo.......I took a lovely little trip to San Fran with Frenchy and our darling friends Sue & Eric in March. My intent was plant shopping, the San Fran Garden Show, The King Tut exhibit at the De Young, The Science Center and the Aquarium - or whatever it is called ,Flora Grubb, Succulent Gardens, Dim Sum at Gold Mountain, Cactus Jungle, Olive Tree Farm, Chez Panisse and the Ruth Bancroft Garden. We managed everything except Chez Panisse - I guess I forgot to make a reservation a month in advance. Seriously. As my trusty Cherokee has now turned over 186,000 miles, I thought it wiser to rent a mini-van (YIKES!) and drive down. I left the day before everyone else and picked them all up in Oakland the next day. I had already filled up a large portion of the van by then, and had to arrange things a bit in order to get everyone in the van.
Over the next week or so, I will post photos of the trip, bit by bit. Today are the photos from the Aquarium and some of The French one........
Frenchy totally cracks me up. These are my favorite kind of photos - you gotta love a good self portrait!
What great textures!
The orange jellyfish with the blue background were breathtaking!
These frogs were more than a little freaky........kind of looked like cartoon characters...kind of.....but not.
I had never seen a nautilus before....one great big stink eye...creepy, but cool!
