A beautiful beach in Tobago.

One of my most memorable trips anywhere was to Trinidad and Tobago.  I went there for carnival a few years ago.

It is most enjoyable due to all the beautiful beaches there!

Here are pictures of Tobago followed by Trinidad.

Tobago is a wonderful island to visit.

I love Healdsburg, California.  A quaint, quite town and it’s a wonderful place to enjoy a day or two. There are lots of shops and places to eat, and quite a few wine bars. Very near is Alexander Valley which has a great number of wineries too, this road leads to Calistoga, and Napa Valley.  This is definitely wine country, and the spring time is a wonderful time to check out the area, it’s beautiful.

What more could you ask for?

Recently I visited the downtown area, and was looking for cupcakes for my birthday.  I found some and they were spectacular!  They have a viewing window where you can view the cupcakes while they are being decorated.  The only and they are delicious.  I love cupcakes! 🙂

They also have an ice cream shop and the ice cream is to die for.  Okay, not literally, no one should die to eat ice cream.  But it really is a must try in downtown Healdsburg.

Llano Seco Sunset, Wetlands.

From Interstate 5 in northern California, there are a few Wildlife areas, which are very pristine. These historic natural wetlands formed from runoff from the Sacramento river and Butte Creek.  Located in Butte and Glenn counties, the Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area is a sight to see.

 

 

Beautiful clouds and sunset on the wetlands of Llano Seco, seven mile road.
Sunset at Llano Seco wetlands.

I was passing by the Llano Seco around sunset.  I went to see Storm Large at the Laxson Auditorium, at Chico State. She rocks!  Look up her website. She sings with Pink Martini also. They have a song, called Veronique. Storm Large

Pictured a sunset from last February.  Lnano Seco was beautiful that evening. There is a boarded walkway out that you can walk out on and get a good view of the wetlands, panoramic also.

Lots of water, birds, and beautiful sunsets at the Upper Butter Basin Wildlife area, Llano Seco, wetlands.

This is one of the finest wetland habitats in northern California.  Below is a link to the Dept of Fish and Wildlife, with maps and much more details about the Wildlife area.

Beautiful Sunset and reflection at Llano Seco.

It’s a great place for bird watching, there are many species of birds. There are so many birds to see, here are just a few.  There are pelicans, hawks, eagles, falcons, cuckoo, sparrows, cranes, herons, starlings, swallows, larks, blackbirds, and so many more I won’t list.  Go to the website, and look at the pdf file, Bird Checklist.  There are so many they need a check list.
