I found several treasures from my archives:
The first day of our cruise to Enchilada, Mexico, the weather was right at sunset. I captured this photo with drifting clouds and a seagull flying by.
We took this helicopter ride to the top of the mountain with Glacier landing at Anchorage, Alaska. Lynton flies helicopter and had an enjoyable conversation with the pilot.
A mother-in-law-to-be and a friends were overcome with joy at this bridal shower for the bride-to-be. A treasure moment shared among family and friends.
At Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane Australia, we observed the koalas and had photos taken by holding one such as this.
Koi fish are plentiful in the pond of the Chinese Garden at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, Los Angeles.
The goslings tried to cuddle under this Canada Goose at the Rhododendron Garden in Portland, Oregon.
