Happy New Year to all!
So far, it has been a very fine start to the year but I have to say, it has also been incredibly quiet. It was quiet last night here in our neighborhood in San Dimas but today, on our New Year's outing, it was quiet, too. So, just what did we do with our day?
I started out with some beading, always a fine thing, but I will post what I am up to on that in a few days.
We decided to go out to lunch at a place by the little airport in LaVerne.
The weather has been perfect this week and today was nice and warm so we sat outside where you can watch the planes take off.
And you can watch them as they come by.
The restaurant might have been fairly busy but I tell you, the airport was extremely quiet and there were only a few planes in and out while we were there. Still, it's a fun place for breakfast or lunch when the weather is so perfect.
Then we came back to San Dimas and thought we would check out the Veteran's Memorial that had been put up recently.
It just wasn't the time of day to take a shot in front so I had to find some shade behind a flag pole to get this one.
The skies are so blue today.
We walked around town a bit but San Dimas is pretty much a ghost town on New Year's Day. I suppose quiet is a good thing to start out the year. Relaxed, contemplative and enjoyable. That's how I would describe the start to 2012.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to this year!
