Sunday 20th March 2011…..do you know anyone 99 years young????

I want to take this opportunity to wish Sara’s Grandmother, Gracie, a very happy and special 99th Birthday!!!!  I met Gracie last summer and she is a vibrant and lovely lady!!!

Speaking of Sara's family I want to send best wishes to her sister, Tammy, who just competed in the Rome Marathon, raising money for MS…Tam finished in a very respectable four and a half hours…love this photo!!

Sunday morning tennis and I always take my camera with me and on the court I snapped this photo…

canyon 002The Monarch butterflies are beginning their journey back north and these two were “being quite friendly”.

After tennis had a few hours to relax and the days are getting hotter now and I do enjoy the lounge chair and all that comes with that.

4pm and off to another first…a symphony concert in a canyon.

To celebrate Spring and the Solstice an orchestra was performing in the local El Charco, botanical gardens…it is a lovely reserve with man made lakes and a quite large canyon….so you are all lucky because you get the free Pearson tour…so get a little beverage and sit back and enjoy these sights but you have to use your imagination of music drifting through the canyon!!!

Came down off my rock for a closer photo…

Now didn’t you enjoy that I know I did it was quite spectacular, the music very good and a joy to see so many people enjoying a special treat.  The event was superbly organized and many volunteers helping with directions….

So what a great day!!!!  Hope yours was too….
