I recently took a trip to California to attend Mike's cousin's wedding. I haven't been to the west coast in almost ten years and was really looking forward to seeing that side of the country once again. Although the drought is taking a toll on the countryside, the landscapes were still gorgeous. I limited myself to only a few hours a day with my camera, which was a welcomed change. Some highlights included driving around Bodega Bay (where The Birds was filmed), walking through Redwood National Park, and of course playing with our house cat, Bob.
