I miss you, Southern California.😢💙🌴 This is at dusk...the last photograph I took of the condominium subdivision in Palm Desert, the gorgeous desert area I called "home" the last 17 months I lived in California.
Every day, with my precious Schnauzer best mate, Sydney, we walked these lovely grounds. This beautiful, serene pond was home to ducks, geese, fish & other assorted desert creatures. This pond has the most fascinating, gigantic,almost cartoon-looking catfish I've ever seen! They had faces which looked uncannily like the Cheshire Cat from 'Alice in Wonderland' & they loved the bread crumbs every bit as much as the ducks. In fact, these amusing guys would, from the dark pond, swiftly jump high, straight up out of the water to catch in their mouth any bread crumb I'd toss! Sydney didn't know what to make of these guys, I found it weirdly cute & the birds found it annoying. 😂🐶 🐟
Whether it's Los Angeles, El Segundo or Torrance...or the beach cities lined up & down the PCH, from Manhattan to Hermosa to Redondo to Long Beach...or my last stop, about 20 miles from Palm Springs, I will always think of SoCal as the place that finally felt like home...where I belonged. 💛✌👊 #california #socal #californialove #palmdesert #coachella #storytime #mylife #elsegundo #manhattanbeach #hermosabeach #redondobeach #pch #longbeach #palmsprings #wherethedesertmeetstheocean #homesweethome #beautiful #imissyou #dusk
