A few weeks ago my wife and I went to Lake Elsinore to look at the poppies there but it was a bit early and the expected super bloom had not fully happened yet. This week we went back and were not disappointed!
While living in Korea, back in 2010, I took the train to The City of Iksan, a farm town in the central east coast region of Korea. When I got there I took a bus out of the city into the countryside, where I spent the day walking an photographing the farm villages.
One of my favorite places on the West Coast is the Point Bonita Lighthouse. It was built in 1855 and was the third lighthouse on the West Coast of the U.S.A. It lights the way into the San Francisco Bay for ships entering under the Golden Gate Bridge.
