I am STILL slowly descending from the world(s) of Wagner's "Ring"... a friend invited me to a few days of sun and sand in Santa Cruz and Capitola. Of course, I agreed..July - September is the "Mini-Winter" here in SF.....and by now, most of you know I am one of "those people" who is always cold.... so it was more than delightful to be in a place (not as far South as Lori's Carpenteria), but still South-enough, to have SUN 24/7... We ate fresh crab on the Santa Cruz Pier, picked Plums and Apricots from trees, then drove a bit more to Capitola...where we spent days on the beach, listening to the waves, feeling the warmth, smelling the air, listening to Gulls and even spying a Harbour Seal poking his head out of the surf. Oh yes, this girl had not yet downloaded her "Ring" pictures.....so had to shoot with her cell phone. I am saving those photos for my "Animal Wednesday" post....but, had to share this gorgeous Passion Flower with you.
I came back, refereshed....and ready for the rest of "Summer" here in SF. Today, I returned to the de Young (after a two month's absence)...and saw our new Picasso Exhibit. More to come on this soon.
I hope you have all had a warm and wonderful weekend!
