Our neighbor, Gracie waits attentively for a treat, inadvertently showing off her new bandage, a souvenir from her latest encounter with the local veterinarian.
YOU WANT US TO GO WHERE?
Mexico's Baja Peninsula? But we'll have to spend a fair amount of time playing on the beach? When do we leave!
On November 4th, Kris flew us down to Cabo Pulmo for five days of work-related activity. This is her son, Avery on Mermaid Beach. For more beach pictures, check out At the Beach on the East Cape
Accommodations were great! There was a wonderful deck for early morning bird watching and a full kitchen! More at Our Home Base at Cabo Pulmo.
The "work" part mainly consisted of touring the Cabo region of the Baja Peninsula in a rented van where we got to see cool sights and buy neat things such as this great tequila Kris picked up in Todos Santos. Check out A Tour of Baja California's Cabo Region.
And then there was the wildlife, which Heidi obviously couldn't keep from pursuing. More on this story at Baja California Wildlife.
Before we knew it, we were queuing up at the airport for our return flight. John flew with us and Heidi flew with Avery and Kris.
BACK TO WINTER
Which can actually be kind of pretty in a stark kind of way, if you ignore the cold. This little bird's nest hangs onto a bare branch as a reminder of Spring.

SCENES FROM A NEIGHBORHOOD
Morning sun on the old hotel.
Nearly naked trees catching the light. The street sweeper dumping its load of leaves.
On November 21, Bob looked outside the plant to see a sky gone wild. For more, check out November Sunset
OUR AMY GOES TO THE BIG APPLE !
Amy was invited to dance with a few others in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Click on the photo to read the local newspaper story.
It turned out to be a wonderful day for walking and walk we did with Emily, around town and out to eat.
CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAYS WITH SHIRLEY
The day after Thanksgiving we enjoyed a traditional holiday meal (sans animal products) with Shirley and spent the night. The next day we began our search for buildings designed by Eugene Groves. For more photos, check out Celebrating the Holidays with Style.
FIRST ANNUAL THANKSGIVING WEEKEND ARCHITECTURAL CAMPUS TOUR
In which Bob, Shirley and Camille checked out 16 buildings designed by Eugene Groves in the 1920's through 50's. Armed with a list and a map, we wandered a deserted campus and saw lovely examples of Architecture as Art such as the Student Services Building, above. To see all fifteen buildings, look at our Eugene Groves Architectural Tour
CAMILLE IN THE KITCHEN
Bob, testing camera software, called Camille's name and she turned to have her picture taken.
On the 28th, it began to snow and by the time it was done, the outdoor deer ornament was buried on the back deck. The mother deer looks like she is taking a nap under a cozy blanket - exactly the activity this kind of weather inspires!
