Inside the airport.  It’s refreshing to be indoors yet outdoors at the same time, especially in a busy place like an airport!

Looking up at the airport…cool!

At grandma’s country club:

This is “The Wash” – where all the rain water drains from the mountains after a heavy rain (which only happens about 4 or 5 days out of the year).

Palm trees!  What a wonderful sight.

More oranges…..this time, using the fruit picker.

Pool of water on the golf course.  Do you see the crane?

You have to watch out for those sprinklers when you’re walking around the golf course.  It’s hazardous out there!  

From 2008 03/14-19 Trip to Cali

Flowers were blooming everywhere.  I love pansies!  

From 2008 03/14-19 Trip to Cali

I don’t know what this is called.  Yellow flower, I guess.

Snapping dragons are so fun.

This is an outdoor shopping mall.  I wish all malls could be like this!

Just beautiful.  (p.s. – not a real crane)
