It’s a good thing I always take my camera with me when I travel out of the Sacramento area. Typically, when I visit Alyse in San Jose, I will photograph the beautiful flowers in her neighborhood while I walk. We also go to the movies, which I seldom do at home. This trip in May, she wanted to take me to Pacific Grove. She said she would sketch while I photographed. An artist, Alyse hasn’t drawn or painted anything in years. I was delighted that she would be sketching.

As always, Pacific Grove was beautiful. It was the weekend and Alyse and I weren’t the only ones there! So, I tried to incorporate them into the pictures. You may have seen some of these images in a recent Lens-Artist post challenge on Blue and Green. In that post I promised that there would be more photos because I had just edited a few.

The Pacific Grove coastline is so lovely that I don’t think you’ll mind seeing a few pictures again! But I’ll try not to duplicate.

I’m glad Alyse and I took this day trip. I have wonderful photographic memories and she has, what I hope to be, a return to doing her art.

  1. Smart girl to bring your camera with you! You got some lovely shots – it really is a wonderful place, the Monterey Peninsula. Glad you had a good time with your friend, too.

  2. A beautiful rocky coastline πŸ™‚ I remember stopping to photograph the Lone Cypress when we did the 17 mile drive in 1991 – good to see it still going strong! Although I have to say I think your other lone tree is the more photogenic of the two πŸ˜€

  3. I absolutely enjoy this trip with you through your lens. All photos were beautifully captured, Anne. How wonderful to have a friend to travel with. I love the 17 mile drive, beautiful scenery. πŸ™‚
