And Back In California ...

  Now that we are back in California, we are getting into our regular life here again.
  In December, this means watching the annual 'Lighted Boat Parade' out on the Monterey Bay...our neck of the woods.

  It happened last night, and I was feeling sorry for those on board! It was quite chilly, windy and a little rough on the water. That being said, it was still loads of fun, what with the 'Super Moon' doing her best to light the way....

Here come the boats!

The event is put on by the nice folks at the
local yacht club...

The water was choppy, so it was hard to get a clear shot.

Big old moon!

Lots of folks showed up along the bay to watch.
We were at the 'C', a favorite bar on Cannery Row.

A good amount of boats showed up, too.

Even Santa made an appearance!

  Johnny and I were amazed at the reflection of the 'Super Moon' was huge-

  Then, this morning, we were able to see the moon set while we were on our morning walk. was really cold.

Not a bad place for a morning walk...

There's Johnny, down the hill....

Hi, Baby!

A last glimpse of the moon before she calls it a day...

I do miss this when we are in Umbria.....


  1. you live in two spectacular locales. I used to go to the Lighted Boat Parade in Capitola when I lived on the north end of the bay. Always fun. Usually freezing.

  2. Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your weblog posts.
