V for Alphabe-Thursday

I pondered upon the "V". I thought about my Dyson Vacuum which I love.
I thought about varacous vein, but, eew. My SIL's (ugh) name is Vickie, I've been to Vancouver BC, its beautiful...but then I remembered a couple of posts ago, I mentioned that we are living life like we are on VACATION...Thats my word.
The picture above is in Santa Monica. We were having lunch at Wolfgang Pucks, outside, and this lady was singing right below us, she was wonderful

Stacey bought these seashells at Seal Beach and made this darling dish to hold her earrings

Oh the freeways around LA. I-5, 210, 710, 605, 2, 101, 1, 110, 57, 60. 10, 22, 71,15 and the list goes on and on.


This colorful bird was at the Aquarium that we went to last week




This colorful ferris wheel was at Balboa Island.
Hope you enjoyed my Vacation living, in So. California~
To visit more "V"'s
Please visit our teacher, Jenny Matlock, she has so many wonderful
students that go out of their way to come up with their own words.

So glad you're enjoying your 'vacation' - wish mine hadn't ended. We can't wait to retire so decided to 'practice' retirement once in awhile and get away more often. Love your photos and Stacey's earring holder.

So laughing at your SIL comment!
Wish I could live life like a vacation--maybe after all my monkeys are gone!

Natasha said...

My post features the same bird that you featured but I couldn't get a very good shot of it! I love Rainbow Lorikeets-we get them everywhere here.

Great photographs!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

I love Balboa Island and my oldest friend's mom lives in Seal Beach. Hey, we're practically related.

I thought your post was going to be about Maine, which is known as Vacationland. This was cool too.

I think everyone should live their life like they are on vacation. That would be so wonderful. Great V post.

The shell dish is very lovely, and I am glad your vacation is going so well. (I am a little jealous of the Wolfgang Puck lunch)!
