My week in photos 6.4.12 - 6.10.12. See more of my Instagram photos here.
Last Tuesday, Lucas and I went on a short hike somewhere around Santiago Canyon, along with his family. It was a perfect day - not too warm and not too cool. The only imperfect part was that he only told me about the hike after I came over. I was wearing flip flops, which obviously weren't very practical. But can you tell that we both like big sunglasses? Haha.
I'm actually pretty surprised by how many beautiful natural settings we actually have in Orange County. The canyon is amazing. We had to drive down a very narrow dirt road to get to a little pond area. Don't worry! I snapped a couple of photos of the pond too.
Here's another photo of the dirt road. I wonder what else was up ahead on that road. Also note the cloudless sky, which doesn't really make for very interesting sky pictures.
As promised, here's a picture of the pond area where we stopped to explore. It was very peaceful here. And the best part? Not too many bugs or other creepy crawlies. There were just some ants and a few tadpoles in the pond.
Yes, the pond even had a waterfall. It took a lot of careful maneuvering and climbing over rocks for me to take this photo. Even with my clumsiness and the fact that I was wearing flip flops, I still managed to not fall over. Woo hoo!
Before we left, I took this photo of the sunlight streaming through the trees. It was probably around 5:30 or so when we left. The canyon was a lovely place and I would love to go back one of these days...and of course, I'll be sure to wear more practical shoes!
And now for something completely different...This past Saturday, Lucas and I joined our friend Melissa at Dave and Busters. We had dinner and drinks there before enjoying an hour or two of arcade games. During dinner, I took a photo of this lovely stained glass fixture.
