Actual Grey whale tail

Grey Whale Expedition

My parents were lucky enough to enjoy a grey whale expedition in Baja, Mexico.  They loved the experience!  It looks like an adventure, they camped out in the middle of nowhere, the camp completely disassembles when the season is over.
Here are some of the photographs they took of the grey whales. The are magnificent large whales, and are surprisingly gentle and calm around the smaller boats.

Grey whale in the Pacific Ocean, my parent went with others in a very small boat around very large whales and the whales are always very nice.

This is the company that my parent used for their Whale Watching expedition!  They also camped because the lagoon isn’t accessible all year around and the campsite is broken down completely after the tour.

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.

There are Farmer’s Markets everywhere in California. Just about every city, has several a week during the summer and fall, and many small towns also feature a once a week farmers market.

Here is a link to a Farmers Market resource for California.

Farmers Markets in California

Here is a list of Farmers Markets from Red Bluff to Redding, California.

Farmers markets in Redding and Redbluff

The first list has just about every city in California, except Weaverville, California, and maybe some other small towns.

The Weaverville, California, Farmers Market is on Wednesday Evenings in the Meadow on Highway 299, next to the Highland Art Center. The market starts at 4:00 pm and goes until 7:00 pm.

Also when traveling in California, not on Interstates, but on the smaller local highways, you will find lots of fruit and vegetable stands. Highway 99 between Red bluff and Chico for example you will pass many stands. And also on Highway 20 from Marysville to Grass Valley, you will see one or two. And also on the highway 99 from Chico to Yuba City and Sacramento, Highway 99 you will find lots of fresh fruit stands, with nuts, dried fruits, fresh fruits and vegetables. Along with Jams, and whatever else can be made from the local fruits and vegetables. Careful driving on these highways! They are in the country and only two lanes.

Roses at Rollins lake Inn California

 

 

Roses, color of fire.
I love this color of roses, they remind me of fire.  

 

 

Rollins Lake Inn, located on Rollins Lake, close to Grass Valley, CA, has some beautiful grounds with gorgeous roses, such as these.

I particularly love these bright orange red roses, which look like fire to me. 

 

 

 

Great job to whoever is taking care of the roses, they really looked nice while we were visiting the Inn.
