A Field Trip to Oak Glen, California

Oak Glen, in the San Bernardino Mountains is known for apple growing. Here are a few of the many varieties.

Last Wednesday my photography class took a field trip to visit this charming town. I’d never been there, but can’t wait to go back.

We ate a delicious lunch at this beautiful inn. Chicken pot pie, seasoned green beans, caesar salad, and warm apple crisp topped with vanilla ice cream. I took the below photo of the flame and its reflection in a beautiful lantern that decorated our table.
Here is one of several sheep on the property. Can’t you just hear her saying, please take my photo.

Oak Glen was the perfect place to spend an autumn afternoon, and well worth a visit.

Sightseeing in Birmingham, Santa Monica, and Austin

I’ve been doing a lot of sightseeing lately.  I took this photo at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens when I traveled there early last week.
I took the second photo in Santa Monica, California on a photography field trip later that same week.

I’m in Austin Texas this week visiting our son and daughter-in-law. These beautiful sun flowers were waiting for me when I arrived. This has certainly been a time of travel for me and I’m loving it.
