Love our planet and all creatures big and small (dolphin – Big Island, Hawaii)

Celebrate the earth by taking care of this planet that feeds our hunger, quenches our thirst, and gives joy through playful dolphins, stunning sunsets, and colorful flowers.  This dolphin played in the wake of our catamaran earlier this year on the Big Island in Hawaii. The sight of this dolphin reminds me how much I care about keeping our oceans clean for our creatures to swim, play and be part of our lives. Our planet takes care of us and it’s up to us to conserve, keep our waters clean and our soils healthy and free of toxins.  How will you celebrate, show gratitude, and take care of our generous planet today…and every day?  When we take care of our planet, we take care of ourselves.  Love and light…

Whales! Photos taken from the shore near Monterey and Capitola, CA

I have neglected blogging, and taking photos, since we’ve moved to California but, decided it was time to share a few shots of whale sightings in the Monterey Peninsula.  It’s been such a thrill and delight to watch whales several times in the last few months, just from the shore. Powerful, peaceful and magical whales…they calm and astound me.

365 Project: Paco…happy doggy clown? Not so much… LOL

I don’t know why we humans force Halloween costumes on our pets. Do any pets REALLY enjoy getting dressed up? Well, maybe those chihuahuas on Beverly Hills Chihuahuas enjoy it, hmmm… For sure, our Paco has never been too thrilled about Halloween dress-up. But, dang, he sure looks cute! 😉
