My wife, Susan, grew up on re-runs of American 80s shows set around Santa Monica, Malibu & LA. This lead to dreams of visiting those places on holiday. Our first trip to the US together was to Houston, to A buffy the Vampire convention (yep, we’re nerds 🤓). After that, whilst still in the Navy, we made it across to Santa Monica & Malibu a few times. Susan has always been a huge fan of Ford Mustangs & we were able to rent them on our holidays.

Looks like summer, but looks can be deceiving; these following shots were all taken a few years ago when my wife & I were staying in Malibu & Santa Monica. We were there in February, although it looks like summer.
Summer here means lots of green…
As well as lots of flowers for the butterflies & bees.
Summer is bright blue skies & yellow sands; we’re fortunate to have much quieter beaches 😁
Hi again 😁 Todays Fan Of… is combined with Cee’s Flower of The Day Challenge. I have gone for the Bird of Paradise. I had never really seen these elegant flowers until my wife and I took our first trip to California, and then as is the norm, started seeing them everywhere. Big Fan Of these flowers!
Hi all, another week trots by. Thanks to Ann-Christine for this weeks challenge Dreamy, and for sharing her stunning photos from Iceland. My photos this week are ones that I can just stare at and drift off into dreamland.
