Blowing Bubbles…Tiburon, California

Those of a certain age enjoyed, from time to time, the practice of blowing bubbles as a child.  Recall, if you will, the little bottle of “bubble fluid” and the plastic ring you inserted in the bottle before gently blowing bubbles across the yard.

A man in Tiburon, CA has taken it to a higher level using a much larger device and the onshore winds from the Bay to generate and transmit his gigantic bubbles.  I first noticed him in November, 2011 and again in March of this year…

Petaluma’s Shollenberger Park…Spring has sprung!

Petaluma’s Shollenberger Park presents a variety of vistas, views, and wildlife. Saturday, before Easter, we walked a portion of the wetlands trail to take in the experience.

I am not an experienced bird watcher and certainly am not an expert on identifying the various species that inhabit Shollenberger.  However, this walk did present many great photo ops including seeing swans OUT of the water! It was the first time I had an opportunity to see their feet! You don’t want them stepping on you!
