Rainy Days

A postponed roadtrip down the coast to San Simeon today because of another California storm. I eat, nap, read, and finally get down to editing photos. I find I can spend hours editing, and creating with my photos, and the day slips away. With the blessing of Mother Nature, we’ll leave tomorrow and find new adventures along the way, and new photographs to make.

It’s all good.

The Sunday Traveler~Sticking Close to Home

The Sunday Traveler lives across the bay from San Francisco, and it had been a little while since my partner and I had been over for a day trip. Bay Area traffic can be frightful, even on a Saturday, so we jumped on the Bay Ferry for an hour’s cruise across the water in comfort. Food, drinks, and bathrooms on board. Yay!

Beautiful things to see in passing through.

Richmond-San Rafael Bridge

Can’t think of a better way to get in to that city by the bay.

Our only intent for the trip was to stroll around the embarcadero and Ferry Building where the ferry docks (right at that structure shown in first photo that says Port of San Francisco); on Saturdays there is a Farmer’s Market there all round the building, front and back. Produce, flowers, and food stalls are abundant. The aroma when stepping off the ferry is magical.

We timed our arrival for close to lunchtime.

But first we took a walk down the embarcadero, then had lunch, then headed back to wait for the return ferry ride home.

Flowers wrapped for the ride home. Filled with gratitude to live in this incredible corner of the world.

Friday Floral Fantasy

Passing time in the backyard of a home that is being emptied in preparation for a sale, the owner having recently passed away, I wait for my friend who works on packing up her friend’s things inside. I find little clues of who this woman was; I didn’t know her, but in her backyard know that she left behind these treasures for a lucky few to see one day.

The Sunday Traveler~The Streets of Coyoacán

It was a pleasure to arrive in Mexico City at the end of this last November. A pleasure to return to a place I spent many of my summers growing up. Family living there wrapped me into their lives as a child of their own. It became home for three months a year; those memories will never dissipate. Part of the family lived right in the City, and another contingent lived in Coyoacán.

It was one cousin from the Coyoacán family that organized this reunion, and rented an AirBnb there not far from where they lived. A perfect location for walking most places.

Yes, cobblestone streets and colorful homes in the neighborhood we stayed in. Actually most of the neighborhoods look similar in Coyoacán.

The 7Eleven around the corner helped us quickly pick up a few kitchen necessities after we arrived. But just a 15 minute walk got us to the central area of town.

We were lucky enough to be there as festivities began to ramp up for Día de Los Muertos/Day of The Dead. I’ll have more on that next week. And I’ll close this week out with a mural that was at the beginning of the street where we stayed

Got to love those bright Mexican colors!
