I've been really busy and it's been a while since I started a thread here, so I thought I would get back into the swing of things with a few images from a recent trip to California. We drove down from Oregon to visit relatives and see my niece, who is quite a good competitive swimmer, compete in a Far Western swim meet. It was the start of an aquatic theme that ran through the whole trip.
Please click on the images to see the larger, higher quality versions. And as always, any comments are welcome.
