    Hi :)

    Thought I would post a link to my album with some photos from our road trip and Thanksgiving in California.

    Most of them are scenery taken from the car as we drove around. They are all generally within 30 minutes to an hour of where we will be living when we return to California. I see these pics and ask myself why we are down here in the crowded south again?:? Does make me wonder!

    Anyway - the one of the giant snow covered mountain at sunset....that is the view from where my front door will be. :)

    Family pics at the end are at Thanksgiving.

    Hope you don't get bored, but please enjoy!

    Have a good night! Off to bed to shake off the last of the jet lag ( hopefully ) as I return to work in the morning. Yuck. :(

    Nitey nite! :D

    Here';s the link:

    Thanks for looking! It is truly beautiful in Northern California.

    Unfortunately, or fortunately mayby (?) only Southern Cal is represented in our <cough cough> TV Programs such as Baywaytch, etc. SO everyone thinks all of California is sunny beaches.

    I much prefer the remoteness of Nor Cal - very much like Northern Scotland.

    THanks again for looking! :)

    Emz - you lucky girl. I adore the highlands - favourite place I have been since living over here. We went as far north as Ullapool/Invergarry. It reminded me so much of home up there.

    Where abouts are you?

    ach! the difference between nor cal and so cal is boundless.

    Personaly - I HATE southern california. With the exception of a few nice places (San Diego, Santa Barbara, Del Mar are a few) I never go south unless I absolutely HAVE to.

    There are a lot of Californians that would just as soon see the state split into two, as we are completely different animals.

    To ANYONE who thinks a trip to Hollywood or Los Angeles is worth te time - please rethink it. Its the armpit of California. HORRIBLE place.

    Norcal - beautiful, spacious, clean....just wonderful. :)

    Thanks for the compliment LS. :)
