Three Days Near the Bay (pt 1)

The dogs and I got away for Memorial Day Weekend.  Loads of traffic, of course, but worth the pain.  Long days with all day sun and I racked up a few hundred photos (and blew nearly $300 on gas).  I haven’t been north of San Francisco since 2008 so it was a real treat to shoot the stuff on my list and reshoot stuff I haven’t seen since then.

Let’s get to it!  The Monterey Lanes, naturally, in Monterey:

From Mill Valley:

Lots more to come from last weekend later tonight or tomorrow.  In the meantime, I’ve just uploaded some other photos at Flickr:

Bye fer now,

Debra Jane
