Carlsbad Rainbows

A visit to Orange County...on the return trip to San Diego, 
it poured rain but it didn't dampen our spirits.  

Then the most amazing thing happened!  A beautiful rainbow appeared during 
the rain and within moments, a double rainbow!  It was breathtaking!

 All of these photos were taken from the window while
we were traveling down the 5 Freeway near Carlsbad, CA. 

 And...all of them were taken with our iPhones!

What a show! Mother Nature in all her glory...

Robert loaded three end-to-end shots of the rainbow into
Photoshop and created a triptych collage. 
I love it!

A rain storm, a double rainbow and an incredible sunset...what a beautiful day! 
Thanks for sharing the memories, Robert!

Visitors from the North

My cousin, Anne, and her husband, Steve, came from Michigan to San Diego for a huge celebration!  They were celebrating Anne's birthday, Steve's birthday and their anniversary.  Their children's gift to them was a week at the Hotel Del Coronado!


I haven't seen my cousin in almost 35 years and it was so nice to spend the afternoon at the Del with Anne and Steve reliving our childhood days.  We had lunch on the deck overlooking the was a beautiful day with lots of conversation.

I hope it isn't another 35 years before we get together again!
