Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment, but I will try posting one more time.
Here are a few of the pics that did not disappear from our last day in LA.
Beautiful succulent . . .
. . . and wonderful vertical planters made from old pallets.
King Harbor in Redondo Beach.
From there we headed north to Cotati to visit with DSO's son Matt and d-i-l Danielle and granddogs Rocco and Olive.
Fritz spent time helping Matt with house projects. Danielle and I spent time at a couple antique shops. I'll share my purchases when I am home, but saw these. What a cool idea. Old doorknobs attached to rebar. Great garden decor!
We left Cotati and headed to Reno. If it wasn't for bad luck, we'd have no luck at all. We encountered heavy rains for hours and when we were passing through Donner Pass, the check tire light popped on. (If you are not familiar with the Donner party, hence the Donner Pass, do a Google search. Sorry I don't know how to link something on the iPad.) Quickly pulled off to the side of the road and discovered a rear tire was losing air. (Tire problem #3.) Thankfully he was able to pump the tire up to pressure and found a tire store less than 10 miles down the road. Before that we were MANY miles from a town. We made it there and it was discovered we indeed did have a leak. The tire gods were smiling on us since they were able to plug the tire and we could continue on our journey.
The weather finally cleared . . .
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
