Need I say more?
Down in the bar . . .
A drive up the coast, lunch in San Luis Obispo at Creekside Brewing, and then a walk about town. The garden behind the mission was beginning to bloom, and the magnolias were especially magnificant.
Los Angeles never ceases to surprise me. This is from a park tucked up into the mountains north of the city, in the middle of a rather nice bit of suburbia. With the recent rains, the hills are green, and soon to be filled with wildflowers, for which I will return better prepared to take pictures.
I pushed this quite a bit because the original picture was quite dull. Somehow, ordinary greens never seem to speak of the lushness of spring, so adding contrast and increasing the yellows already in the picture made it more interesting to me.
Today’s image, and the last two, were all taken in the evening as the sun went down.
A reserved spot for seals in the spring, the Carpinteria seal rookery come here every year to breed and raise their pups. It is off limits during this time, but looking down from the cliffs above is a delightful experience. Notice the camouflage – the rough texture of the mussels matches the mottled coloring of the seals.

I’ve had an awful cold for the past week – and whilst convalescing, I made good use of my time. I knit a sweater this past week, and watched all of Engregages, and even managed to get to work for a few hours . . .
A lot of construction is going on where I work, and much of it is outside my front door. Bobcats and diggers, plumbers and electricians. Noise. However, it does make for some fun subject matter!
