My husband and his co-workers went fishing for salmon in the waters off Farallon Islands and on the way they spotted a passing whale. A half day fishing trip yielded 11 medium-sized rock cod and a mackarel; sadly no salmon. He brought home the fish, I cleaned them. It impressed him that I could gut a fish.

Out For A Drive

We're on the way home when I could no longer contain myself and shoot this from the passenger's seat.

Napa Valley

Taken in early fall; you can see half has turned red and the other half stubbornly clinging to their green leaves.

Thanks for all the Thanksgiving greetings. We did have a good one with family; hubby outdid himself with the turkey and all the fixings and I did not stuff myself to the gills with food as I was running a fever. I did manage to enjoy the meal, though.

Gotta go to see Beowulf (is that how you spell it?) Nope, I do not shop after thanksgiving. Not me.

Caught Shooting #22

Will take a short break in time for Thanksgiving. Hope you all have a peaceful holiday season.

Let's Eat

This table got's my name on it.
Long line outside the restaurant could only mean one thing---good food.

Early again? I am not about to shoot while others are eating, now would I?

This table we shared with a couple from Hongkong. Sometimes sharing a table with total strangers leads to better table conversation.

Fall In Yosemite

A brown bear was seen by the trail as he gets ready for the coming winter. I was afraid to take his picture while he was facing me some 10 yards away, so I waited until he was leaving. Can't believe I'll see one in a crowded and oft-used trail. Finally got to see something wild in the wild. Every one going up was letting those going down to tread slowly as there was a bear on the sidelines.
Driving through the cathedral of trees, always a wonderful experience no matter what the season.

200 Miles Away From Home

That is what their visitor's guide say about Plumas County. I agree, but both visits I only came to see the leaves. It is relaxing out here though. Worth the long drive.
Another bonus in day trips like this one is finding a good place to stop and get a bite. This one at Graeagle is a combination candy store and deli. Every thing they sell is made in that store with the exception of the bagels and croissants. The owner and/or store clerk is very friendly. So are the other diners.
