Welcome to Fantasy Island!
Do you recognize this, or are you too young to remember Fantasy Island? I was going to name the post, “De plane, de plane!”, but I decided against it. I took this photograph at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, located in Arcadia, CA. It is a fantastic place to visit. Since I grew up in Pasadena and Glendora, a school field trip was a common event to the Arboretum. We took Larry as a little boy and Willie and I love to go and walk around with our cameras. Because of the close vicinity to Los Angeles, it is used quite a bit for movies and TV shows. Many of the Tarzan movies in the 1930’s and beyond were filmed there because there is an area that replicates the jungles of Africa.

There is so much to see there and we really enjoy going. If you look at the link I gave you above, you will find a lot of information about the area and the history of this house plus the carriage house. It is another beautiful day in Huntington Beach. I worked on my “LinkedIn” affiliation and invited many people to join. I signed-up for a few groups myself. I was accepted into the “Women in Photography” group. I need to do some research to see how it will benefit me. I am hoping this will be a good thing. Larry and Shelley are having a great time up in Mammoth snowboarding and romancing (I assume) on their one week vacation. They will be home on Wednesday night. Are you having a good week-end? Let me know what you are up to!
