Hello SEASONS bloggers, Sun Jan 15- Wed 18
Thanks to everyone for your beautiful captures! Am amazed every time for the quality of your blogs and photography!
Hope you re getting used to normal life in January! We had two weeks rain (more on than off) and Friday was the first day of sun – wow how bright!
If you live in one of the flooded areas, or where storms effected trees, etc., we like to see it!
At the end of the first week we had an Afterglow party – just in time, because the next day we had an 8-hour electricity outage, and two days later again! Happy to have a wood stove, so we were not cold! And a gas range for cooking. Got to remember that the next time we move!
The long absence of sun (am spoiled!) is perfect to show our time in South, California, where the sun shines at least 80% of the time out of the year,
also in winter. This is Balboa Park in San Diego, one of our hangouts.

TO REMIND YOU in the North, it will not always be cold:)
It’s January! Really? Am not confused:) In Southern California, January really looks like this. In one of the houses we lived, we inherited a approx. 50 feet palm tree from the previous owner.
Do you know that when the leaf of an adult palm falls on you, they can be pretty heavy and scratch you? The ends on the sides where the leaf is attached to, are pointy, looking like thorns. Also, it’s heavy so and may damage other plants. If I could have chosen, I would like this one!
One of my favorite places to roam around is Balboa Park in San Diego.
Not on of the best angles of the Museum of Man, but showing how high
that tower is.
The origins of this museum were in the Panama- California exposition, which opened in 1915 for the inauguration of the Panama Canal.
The subject of the exposition was Man throughout the Ages. It changed names several times. In 1942 it became the Museum of Man to focus
on the anthropological side.
During World War II it served as a hospital. The Museum is housed in four buildings. The tower is a landmark in San Diego and has a carillon
played all quarter hours and can be heard in the park.
