Vacation Snaps

I've been back from California for a week now. The trip went so usual. I didn't have enough time to do the things I wanted to do, or see as many people as I would have liked, but isn't that the way it goes?

Nor did I have a lot of time to play with my new camera. But I did play a little. Still learning things on my new Canon PowerShot SX60 HS.

Here's a small selection. What do you think? Comments below :-)

Just some of the wild echium growing around the peninsula.
One of my favorite plants.

China Cover in Pacific Grove.

Woman kayaking near China Cove, PG. What else do you do in a kayak but
smoke a cigar and 
check your messages. Love the blue nail polish.
