Day 87 - icy bath

Woke up to three inches of snow. As Gomer Pyle would say, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!"

Although I didn't succumb to the siren call of these cupcakes, I did stop to admire their beauty.

Day 81 - blue-eyed horse

While on a four mile walk today, we stopped to make friends with a pretty blue-eyed horse.

Funny that the signage shows a horse with rider but a riderless bike.

Another afternoon on the bike trail...just me & Byka today. And all the snakes steered clear.

Day 79 - suicide snake

We went for a ride on the bike trail today,
and Sherry ran over this baby rattlesnake that had crawled on to the trail.
She felt so bad about it that I had to post this entry.

Day 76 - rites of spring

Saw many species of birds (wild turkey, hawks, geese) today while on the bike trail. This one was the only cooperative model. He/she waited patiently while I finally figured out the camera was on the wrong setting. D'oh. It flew off just a sec after I finally took this shot. What a gorgeous first day of spring!

Day 72 - bumbee

Gigantic bees were out working it today along the busy bike path. Is this wild phlox?

California's state flower.

Day 66 - silhouette

This was an experiment .
I only had my cell phone with me, and decided to see how that would turn out.

Day 65 - cupcakes!

These cupcakes looked a lot better before the birthday boy dropped them upside down.
They may not be perfect looking but it's the thought & taste that counts. Cheers!
