I had a wonderful day with all my family who lives locally, but of posting my paradisical (a word I just made up) mother's day photos, I decided to share some photos of Redondo Beach, California--my hometown, where every day is mother's day. I am so grateful to live where I do. To me it is paradise.
The weather turned foggy and cold again, so we moved our picnic lunch into my home in Redondo Beach for mom's day. While the family was visiting, the sun wasn't. The sun came out about 4 p.m. and stayed through sunset. These sunsets below, however, are from summer 2004, on a walk with my beloved rainbow bridge dog Cookie. Remember her?
What a great 14 years Cookie and I had together, my rescue dog from the Hollywood area, who came to me from living on the street with her homeless owner Johnnie. Cookie got hit by a car and my son's then girlfriend coaxed me into taking her.
And here's my sweet rescue dog Mollie who I got when she was about a year old. I've had her for about 1 1/2 years and she has the most wonderful disposition of any dog I've ever had. She and I now walk the Esplanade in Redondo Beach and look forward to some great summer sunsets, our paradise.
