I. Sunny afternoon at Baker Beach.
II. The sky after work, 28th Ave and Quintara. The only good thing about staying late at work.
III. Santa Cruz harbor with my cousin Bill.

These iPhone photos were taken on mid October-November. Our weather has been so beautiful these days, sixty and sunny, and its hard to believe that its really the last month of the year. All I want to do is sit by the water and read.

How about you, what have you been up to lately?


  1. lovely skies.

    our winter has begun...hail and lots of rain.... beautiful reading weather.

  2. The top photo is lovely. Instagram is my absolute favourite.

    Our weather has been a bit up and down lately but today it is gloriously sunny and tomorrow is supposed to be even better, so I will be out there, soaking up as much sun as I can!
