Tonight’s Sunset in Long Beach Was Gorgeous! Photos Here!

November 5, 2010

I’ve been home sick with a cold for two days. Grandpa Ron has been taking care of me! Aw! He brought me lunch and dinner. What a sweety. But then about 10 minutes ago he calls and says “Go quick outside and enjoy the beautiful sunset!” So I grabbed the camera and ran to the end of our street. Snap! Snap! Snap! Hurry, before it’s gone! Now it’s dark! BUT – here are the photos for you to see that sunset, too! It is low tide so the water is low along the beaches but there are still some nice reflections! Was great to enjoy the sunset! 🙂

Sunset Clouds and Big Baby Quail

July 24, 2009

The sunset over Reno tonight wasn’t that spectacular but the clouds put on a show of their own. The clouds to the west over the Sierras were all golden with highlights of Naples yellow. The clouds to the east were all red and rust hues.

The tiny baby Quail chicks that we saw two weeks ago are now about half the size of their parents. They still clammer and quick-step to keep up with the lead adult while the sentry adult in the back keeps chirping at them to keep moving. They run to and from the quail feeder we have for them at the edge of the patio. We counted 17 chicks this afternoon. We think it is three families…..
