Happy Songography


I recently visited my aunt and uncle in La Jolla California. That made me happy. My last vacation was nearly two years ago. You know what else? There was SUN.  Everyday.
That totally made me happy.

And there was....wait for it.....
No frickin' way!!  I haven't seen color in so long I forgot what color looks like.
 It looks good.

In Bloom
And there was new and different stuff and fun things to take photos of.

And there was the chance to spend extended time with my aunt and uncle who are lots of fun.

A park full of street art. That totally made me happy.

Linking with Kathy over to "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out" where this week's song, if you weren't paying attention is "Happy". 
Everybody knows that one.
Have a happy day.
Thanks for letting me share a few highlights of my happy vacation.

It's always fun to explore a new area . . . and I know what you mean about color. After such a long winter I think we're all gagging for it. Hubby and I are off to Chicago next weekend to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. Never been there before so I'm excited to see what its like.

Oh how happy, happy, happy! Glad you got to go on a wonderful trip which made you so happy. I'm happy for you!

Sharon said...

Great photos of your trip! I live in San Diego and appreciate it every day. I've never been to Chicano Park. Looks like I should go and see all the color. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your time in my corner of the world :)

Oh my - such a treat for the eyes!
Love the old rusted bus, that last piece of art that is entrancing and the first shot is beyond gorgeous!
Glad you had a wonderful time!

Great set! I especially love the self-portrait at the end, which beautifully showcases your colorful personality.
PS - I have crocuses blooming in my yard today!

It looks like you had a wonderful time, Susan, and what a neat place to explore.

Love Spiffy!

You do kind of forget what color is like, and then it is color overload, in a good way.

The happiness is practically exuding from my monitor! I am so glad you were able to take this vacation - well-earned for sure - and fill your eyes and lens with light and color and lovely relatives and cute dogs. So "happy" for you and the wondrous artistic results.

Wonderful post. So happy you had that vacation time. Loved that Surfer Photo with the stunning sunset. It's great that you were able to spend time enjoying family and visiting fun places. Cool Van, Great street art.
