Paramount Ranch

Teaching Matt how to handwrite his name and explaining how important it is to have an individual signature that only he will have.


After a yummy lunch at Lure we decided to take a walk at Paramount Ranch.  It was too hot to hike so we just sort of hung out in shady areas and enjoyed each others company.

What show did you watch that was filmed here?  For me it was Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman

Hiking in Satwiwa

A gorgeous day in Satwiwa.  To say this is my happy place is an understatement.













This tree was in a fire a few years ago.


And these lizards that live in the tree have changed their skin color to black.


I was staring at the tree and all of a sudden noticed them sunning themselves.  Amazing how nature adapted to the blackened tree.

Thanks Vinney for sharing your beautiful photos of our lovely day.

Spring has sprung!

Truly the most beautiful time of year....lush greenery, flowers everywhere, fresh air.  Every part of my soul says "get outside!"

I was visiting my mom in Lompoc and got an incredible nature treat.  It looked like how I imagine Ireland to be - green and lush -like a William Wendt painting.

These cows were so curious.  I called out to them, "hey ladies!" and they all stared at me while I took their picture.



The drive to Jalama Beach was magical.

Malibu Canyon State Park

Three months ago we hiked in Malibu and there wasn't a drop of water and everything was brown.  Cut to March and its a whole new world.  Green, lush, alive!  Water in all of the streams and ponds.  My heart is so happy!!!!!
