The night before the full moon I was out on Shelter Island for practice, then the night of the full moon at Balboa Park (not happy with either location for what I wanted). Then I found my spot -- Harbor Island. This was actually taken the night after the full moon. Thanks Susan Elms for your encouragement and company.

The "All Girl Sail Jam" was held this year again at Mission Bay Yacht Club. Thanks to Aine Fretwell for organizing the regatta again this year. With friend Susan Elms driving, we had a boat and motored around the course while I took photos of the racers. Love seeing the girls out competing. Fantastic day on Mission Bay!

Terry and I arrived the night before the workshop began, had a leisurely breakfast and then wandered around the town. We spent time at an abandoned building, then at the museum. Back to the Mizpah Hotel to meet up with the group.

I realized that I haven't been posting many of my current photos, and I can't believe my last blog post was in April. I decided to post some of my favorite photos from the past few months, but won't overload you all at once, just a few here and there.
Last month, Terry Myers and I did a fantastic weekend workshop with Keith Douglas Skelton in Tonopah NV. On the way up we stopped at the Amargosa Opera House, (Death Valley Junction) and had a look inside at the beautiful paintings Marta Beckett has done. If you don't know the history, be sure and click on the link above. She's an amazing woman, and although not performing anymore, still lives on the property. It is still visited by people from all over the world, and we were told that the day before we stopped by, they had two busloads of folks (about 90 people total) who came for a visit.
