Summer Vacation Pictures

Jim and I spent June and part of July in Southern California, visiting daughter Melinda...then hit Colorado for a visit with son Mike and dil Angie to see their new house.
 
Had a great time in both places.
Here are a few hi-lights.
 
Pier at Balboa Island...
 

The Denver Botanical Garden (one of this country's BEST). 



 Luckily there was a fabulous display of Dale Chihuly's glass art scattered throughout the gardens.


 
You may have seen some of his work...the ceiling in the reception area of Bellagio in Las Vegas is one glorious example. 



Try imaging colorful glass sparkling in the clear mountain air, a profusion of every flowering plant you've ever heard of as a backdrop.  Simply breathtaking!

Loved our vacation...wine tasting, being touristy, visiting family...but it's great to be home!!!
