One of our favorite wineries, Navarro paired up with Downtown Restaurant in Berkeley. This is the second Navarro sponsored dinner event we’ve attended.

This morning I spotted a caterpillar by the rose bush and it reminded me of when I first started photography in the 7th grade. I couldn’t drive anywhere, so everything I shot was in the backyard. Needless to say I took a large number of bug shots. Canon G7 – ISO 100 – 1/159 sec […]

Steve invited us to a joint birthday celebration today at Tilden Park. We hardly knew anyone, but warm and friendly is always the M.O. at Steve’s parties. Of course Steve doesn’t act like your typical 60 year old, but that’s why we love him. The rest of the photos. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

Photo on the left was taken on 6/27/07. Photo on the right is from today, same ducks. The mother is now pushed out to the back in the daily scramble for food. They are scratch eating machines, or should I say pigs! Soon enough, these pigs will learn to fly. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

Today Freda, Tawny & Aleki arrived from South Carolina. We had lunch at Goldilock’s, then headed straight to the Monterey Strawberry Festival.
