A trip this morning to La Jolla proved, in spite of a threat of rain, proved to be a great photo opportunity. Bob and I set up on the cliffs for about 2 hours and enjoyed the birds.

Monday was another wonderful day at the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary. We arrived around 9:15 am, and we stayed until almost 11:30 am. It rained earlier that morning, but we had beautiful weather as we walked about 3 miles of the trails. We found only 3 pelicans, but there was a good assortment of other birds to photograph.

Kelly accompanied me on this trip to the wildlife sanctuary.

Our friends, Mark & Mary graciously invited us to share in Thanksgiving dinner. Kelly made "Dad's" famous stuffing, deviled eggs and her famous chocolate cream pies! It was a great feast with wonderful friends. We certainly have a lot to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
