Saturday morning snaps

At about 10 this morning, Rebel Girl called and mentioned that she could see snow out her window. Sheesh!

So out I went to take a few pics. Drove up to the Trabuco church, which permits a view, not only of the mountains, but of the ocean. Check it out.

If you look carefully, you can see Catalina Island. Some of it is to the left; some way to the right (It's pretty faint):

This one's a shot of the notorious Wheeler compound--from across Live Oak Cyn.

My nephew (taken last weekend).

My niece.

I do hope you all have a good weekend.

You might be a little confused about the location of Catalina, but those kiddos are downright cherubic. Thanks for the smiles, Chunk.

Dear Anonymous:

I'm pretty sure that the very distant mountains on the horizon stretching across much of the photo--the middle is obscured by the hills to the south of Irvine-- is Catalina Island. Being wrong about this would be a bit like being wrong about where my left hand is.

But it would be cool if I were that wrong. And, yes, those kids are cute, ain't they?

That's Catalina Island all right. What else would it be, Hawaii? Japan?
