spring getaway

a little time away....

in sunny San Diego....

just my oldest boy and I.... (thanks to my selfless hubby for allowing this time away and holding down the fort!)

we enjoyed our time exploring the area....

hiking, beaches, fields of ranunculus, discovering every tide pool possible...

it felt good to feel the warm sunshine, breathe in the salty air, and hear the crashing waves...

food for the soul...

bring on spring...!

chasing the fog

The fog comes

on little cat feet.

 

It sits looking

over harbor and city

on silent haunches

and then moves on

~carl sandburg

and the fog did just that....

lingered in the harbor most of the day....

and then slowly made its way down river....

what a hauntingly beautiful sight to see....
