Sky Watch Friday #44


Once again we would like to thank our hosts: Klaus, Ivar, Fishing Guy, Sandy, Wren and Louise. Without them there would be no Sky Watch.


And once again I am turning to my daughter, Kathryn, for photographs. She took these in Pacific Grove, California, where every year at this time there appears a carpet of purple ice plant. Combined with the water and the beautiful blue skies, it makes a fantastic picture. If you see a small person in any of the photos, that would be my youngest grandson.

A beautiful day in Pacific Grove.


A path through the purple carpet.


Watching the boats in Monterey Bay.


Somewhere in this purple carpet you might find my grandson.


And she had one made into a jig saw puzzle for me for Mothers' Day.


You may be able to tell on this one that the purple continues for a couple of miles, along the shore of the Bay.

I've driven thru Pacific grove quite a few times and enjoyed all these lovely sight from the freeway but never stopped to look closer. Thanks for sharing. I should make a point to stop next time I'm in driving thru the area.

How beautiful...I love the second shot and the Where's Issac pic. I think I can see his little head. That is really cute. I am guessing the purple carpet is flowers. So lovely. Thanks for sharing : )
