(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #206 – Wildflower Hunting

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #206 - Wildflower Hunting

Over the weekend we went wildflower hunting north of Sacramento.  We were in the Bear Valley Road area between Williams and Clear Lake, while this is a route I had taken many times as a child on my way to visit my grandparents in the summer, little did I know that there were adventurous side […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #205 – Da Poke Shack

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #205 – Da Poke Shack

On the advice of the folks at Greenwell Farm I headed closer to the beach and toward the very long line at Da Poke Shack in order to get a taste of the island’s best poke.  Since you can find poke, good ones, every where it is really hard to say who really has the […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #204 – Nishiki Generations

Next-Gen-Nishiki

Third generation fish monger.  Or maybe fourth. Either way, totally adorable.  I rarely take photos of people, I don’t seem to get it right very often and I am shy about asking permission (which I feel strongly you should do). But this guy was too cute! How about you? Do you like taking photos of […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #203 – Month of Letters Week 1

Month of Letters

I am participating in the Month of Letters campaign and  I made it through the first week!   The biggest reward has been the response from my friend Andi Perullo of My Beautiful Adventures who was thrilled with my little card and gift and that maybe me feel great. How about you? Are you participating in […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #202 – San Francisco Neighborhoods

San Francisco Neighborhoods

During the process of interviewing and writing the San Francisco Profiles posts I realized that people may be familiar with the names of some of the San Francisco neighborhoods but not where they are in the city.  Above is a map laying them out across the 7 miles by 7 miles that makes San Francisco. […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #201 – Japanese Harmony

(Not quite) Wordless-Wednesday201–Japanese-Harmony K

One aspect about Japan and Japanese culture that I admire and strive to find in my own life is harmony.  Whether it is a simple arrangement of seasonal vegetables that are waiting to for my hotpot dinner (in the photo above), or the lines of a kimono, there is beauty everywhere you look in Japan.  […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #200 – Kyoto Moto Cat

KYOTO-cat

I share this photo at the risk of being called a cat lady, but this cat was so darn cute.  Spotted outside of the Sanzen-in Temple in Ohara (outside of Kyoto) he was sitting all bundled up on top of a board balanced on top of a motorcycle.  Adorable! How about you? Ever seen an […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #199 – Kyoto Window Cats

Kyoto Cats

I am working on my posts for Kyoto and Osaka, seriously, I could have posts for months! In the meantime I wanted to share this photo from Kyoto that I found to be very whimsical. Mr. Misadventures and I were strolling through the neighborhood outside of Kyomizadera Temple when we spotted a little street of […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #198 – Umeda Sky Building in Osaka

Umeda-Sky-Building

We spent our last two and a half days in Japan in Osaka. It was frenetic, an attack of the senses. Everywhere we went there was lights and signs and people. So different after five peaceful days in Kyoto. Not bad. Just different. To me, Osaka is like a mini-Tokyo. One night we hunted down […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #197 – Chestnuts

Japanese-Chestnuts-in-Kyoto

One of the foods I really loved to eat while living in France was chestnuts in the winter.  Roasted, or as a wonderful soup.  But I have never seen them in their “natural” state. As it is the season, they were everywhere in Kyoto and Osaka and I took of photo of their furry outer […]
