I guess it is a good thing that I take a picture a day, or I might have a real problem keeping track of where I have been and what I have done. This has been a busy month to be sure. Time to catch up with my Project 365 updates.
At midnight on Day 197, Tanya and I decided to drive up to Campbell, CA to visit Psycho Donuts. Unfortunately, we did not make it due to the fact that we forgot Tanya’s laptop at home. When we walked in the door I discovered a water inlet hose to my dishwasher broke, so I had a flooded kitchen. This photo is of Buddy patiently awaiting our first attempt at departure.
That night we tried again. This time we made it up to Campbell. Our intent was to go to the donut shop, take some pictures, grab some donuts, then drive down Hwy 1 through Big Sur and take the coast all the way home. Unfortunately, traffic up there sucked. We made it as far as Monterey before Tanya had enough and requested we make a u-turn back to I-5. Day 198’s photo is Tanya and I at a rest stop by Santa Cruz, before giving up and jumping back on the 5.
Day 199 was Sunday, which meant it was time for a long overdue motorcycle ride. Tanya and I rode down to San Juan Capistrano to meet my son, then the three of us rode to Escondido to have lunch at Stone Brewery. This photo was taken in the garden there.
Day 200. My birthday. I never realized that my birthday was the 200th day of the year, and I probably never would have if not for this photo a day project. I found it interesting that Tanya’s birthday was the 100th day and mine was the 200th. Kind of weird, I guess. This photo was taken at Ostrich Land up by Solvang, CA.
For my birthday, we took the Limited up to Buellton for dinner, then went down the road a little to the Chumash Indian Reservation, where we spent the night and took some money from their casino. For the record, their casino allows smoking, but does not allow drinking. Just be aware. It was a great birthday, either way. Thanks again to Tanya, you are the greatest. Day 201 is the morning after, before we got back on the road to head home.
We made it home and I had to put Tanya on a plane to send her home. All good things must come to an end. Day 202, and all is back to normal. Today’s photo was taken on my morning walk with Buddy.
I guess it has been a busy week. I have a lot of galleries to build and blog entries to make. Buddy and I started the day, as usual, with our morning walk. My picture of the day for Day 203 was taken on said walk.
Well, now that I am all caught up with my picture of the day, I guess it is time to do some organizing.
