A Day in Pictures

On Saturday, my friend Lupe and I drove down to the wetlands in Huntington Beach.  It was an overcast, cool (finally) day and so beautiful there!  I wanted to try out a camera lens my friend Michaela let me borrow.  Oh my goodness, there was God's beauty everywhere we turned!!

We spent a lot of time walking around and looking at the birds.  So many different kinds of birds!  And when you were still all you could hear was the wind blowing and the water rippling up onto the rocks and the birds talking to each other- it was so beautiful!

After the wetlands we drove back into Huntington to meet my son and daughter-in-law for lunch.  It was a beautiful day for a walk into downtown Huntington Beach and out onto the pier!

We had a terrific time at Ruby's on the pier, enjoying each other's company and a great conversation!  And I never imagined at the time that the day would end with a new car!!  A big thank you to Nicholas, Rebecca, and Lupe for encouraging me!! And Nicholas for helping me!!
We said goodbye to old faithful (it was a bit sad. . .)

and now... . . a car I can depend on. . . . . (and it's cute!!!)
