ABC..what?

So there was this thing called an ABC-along wasn't there?  I sorta blew it didn't I?  It's not that I forgot, there were just other more important matters to attend to. Like knitting. And making soup. And furry critters. And fun times with friends.

Over the New Year's holiday I had the great joy of a visit from my good friend D, who I don't get to see nearly often enough anymore. She brought another friend, K.C., and I played hooky from my studies for a few days to run around and play with them.  We drank adult beverages, ate a few excellent meals, took a bus ride up to the airport for lunch, visited with other friends and wandered through other scenic areas of Avalon. Along the way, I decided to grab the last few shots to complete that neglected ABC-along for 2008, and get a start on 2009.

So...

W is for Wrigley Memorial




X marks a spot in the Memorial Gardens




Y is for Yucca elephantipes




Z is for Zane Grey Pueblo Hotel




A is for Airport in the Sky




B is for Buffalo in the fog



So how 'bout that?  I think in the past I got held up on some of the letters because I felt like I had to say something of substance about each picture.  But I'm not going to worry about that anymore, I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

Hopefully there was a little something for everyone, but just in case not, or if you want more, the rest of the eleventy-jillion shots I took are below. Enjoy!

Wow! Beautiful gardens! Those cacti look almost Christmasy with the red buds on them. Glad you spent some time with friends. You deserve it. xxoo

You have a great eye for pictures.

Very nice! I think that the whole "alphabet in order" thing is overrated. The alphabet likes to be jumbled up! It's more interesting that way!

Those pictures look warm. I miss warm...
