MT. BALDY, CALIFORNIA

Some photos from a trip to Mt. Baldy.  We leave our mountain range, drive about an hour over to another mountain range to visit Baldy.  There is just a very small village with basically a restaurant bar, another restaurant bar and a church.  Other than that, there is the ski lifts and a restaurant up at the top of the lift.  

The last three pics - we took our first grandson, Hunter,  who will be turning 19 tomorrow,  up to Mt. Baldy when he was about 5.  I noticed on our last trip that the building near where he was walking on the wall, is now boarded up.  I hadn't been to this particular part of Mt. Baldy where the cabins are in years until we went recently.  Anyway what a different 14 or so years makes between childhood and a 19 year old.  I also caught him in action looking like he was flying.

GIG HARBOR - A FAVORITE AREA OF MINE

 The last time we were in Washington was spring of 2019.  My son and his family live there and since Covid we haven't been there as I don't want to wear a mask on an airplane and other reasons as well.  Anyway I'm missing them but also Gig Harbor which is about a half hour from their place.  There are so many beautiful small coastal towns.  I was looking through photos the other day and thought I would post a few to remind me that I need a trip there - even if it is a long road trip minus the cat - whatever will I do with her, sigh.

SOMETIMES ...

 I'll come across photos I've taken in the past which brings up great memories of a fun day.  I remember we had driven to a nearby city by where I use to work and decided to find this trail that we looked up on the internet.  As we were walking along I noticed this house to my right and of course the horses.  As we stopped for a bit the one horse came up to greet us.  We went back to this place a few years ago and a wall had been built so we couldn't see this house anymore.  Their property and house are gorgeous and of course so are the horses. 

This is a group of photos that make me want to get out and explore new places today.  

I think I posted them a few years ago.

HELLO -

 Just sharing a photo of these gorgeous lilies which I bought myself the other day. 

 Just in case you don't know this fact, which I didn't, but something popped into my mind and said "look this up they could be toxic to cats".  Where that came from I don't question just accept that somewhere inside of me I knew it could be dangerous.  I probably read it and just didn't remember I did. 

Anyway i now have had to move them into my bedroom and keep the door closed so Beanie can't get in there.  When we first brought them home I didn't know about the toxicity when I had them on the counter in the kitchen.  She was very interested in them and seemed attracted to the fragrance.   She seems fine so that's good. 

They sure make a bedroom smell good - They smell just like Stargazer's which I've always loved but I think i like the white lilies even more.
