Wish I could still be here this morning enjoying my morning coffee!
As the cool night air rose from Lake Almanor and the sun filtered through the pines, stepping out on to the lower deck surrounded by the glittering water meant the promise of yet another perfect Summer day.
By mid-morning the fabulous days spent here were sunny and hot with cloudless skies. Calm, flat water allowed lots of fun water sports. Picnics by mountain lakes, drives through scenic countryside, visits to a craft fair, browsing in thrift and antiques shops................and even an awesome flight around a volcano kept us very busy!

Now I'm home again facing the usual mundane chores in hot, humid North Carolina. Roll on Autumn days.......my Summer has been fun but I'm ready for a change. I'll have more stories and images of Northern California to share after I edit my many photos.

Thanks for the wonderful time Paula.......Jasmin and I enjoyed every moment. Hope to return next year!

I'm a transplanted Brit enjoying life in North Carolina. 50 years journeying back and forth across the wide Atlantic Ocean have kept me busy.......and made my life very interesting! I'm still traveling often - look forward to sharing many new places during the next couple of years.
