These wonderful wild flowers are beautiful and also very fragrant.  You can smell them when the wind blows.  I caught this caterpillar enjoying the flowers in the early spring.

Birds that love cherries in Shasta County

Blue jay caught in the cherry tree.

The birds came and ate all of our cherries within just a couple of days.  
By the time I made it back to Redding  all the cherries, were gone, or half eaten by birds.  
I never see these bright yellow and orange birds until the cherries are ripe and then there are many of them.  I forget the name so if you know, please leave a comment.  Thanks.

These colorful birds LOVE cherries I tell you.

Shasta Lake, Bridge Bay Resort and Tail O the Whale


View from Tail O the Whale restaurant deck.


We went to the Tail O’ the Whale for lunch as a meeting point for friends.  The weather was great, and the view was wonderful!   Shasta Lake is so full!
  

Summer is here finally! Time for swimsuits, sunscreen, water sports, and fun with family and friends.  Northern California has so many lakes and rivers to offer it is one of the most gorgeous places in the United States.

These photographs were taken from the Tail O’ The Whale restaurant and also the dock out to the lake. It’s a great place to have a meal and take in the breathtaking views.   

In the distance is the Interstate 5 which goes from Mexico to Canada.
