Another 100!

No not miles... 100 posts!

Sorry I've been an absent blogger, but life has been running away with me.

But, as a reward for your persistence, a photo bonanza. This weekend my parents came to visit and you get to share the family photo album.

Can you believe this sky?

Talk about amazing clouds.

This weekend was a wet to dry experience. We started Saturday with a trip to Crystal Cove. Of course the trip to the beach requires a hike through "the tunnel."

A trip through the dark and into the light.

And do you know what we got to see?

Look at this little sweetie! Unfortunately he was apparently lost and the calvary had to come save him.

After a great dinner at the Beachcomber, which is right on the beach, we waited for sunset.

And it was worth the wait.

Sunday we went to the desert. We started at brunch at the 29 Palms Inn.

You can find the strangest things in the most unusual places.

Then we drove into Joshua Tree National Park. While the wildflowers weren't yet in bloom, there were some magnificent blooms out.

The yucca... take a look at this.

You don't see a flower mound like that too often.

And the joshua trees... all in bloom. This is apparently fairly unusual. The joshua trees don't bloom every year.

Here's the up close.

Just beautiful.

Then we took a couple of short hikes out and about.

Got to explore every crevice.

Got to hold up the world.

Got to get perspective on your size in the world!

And you have to stop and admire the beauty.

It was a wonderful weekend full of things to see and places to go.
