Happy birthday, Julie

Today is my wife's birthday, so allow me to say happy birthday by showing this photo of her, as she came out on the little "Juliet balcony" of the master bedroom of our condo after my little walk on the beach that I have shown you during the past few weeks.

We celebrated Julie's (milestone) birthday a little early by spending 5 days in northern Sonoma County wine country in California with 8 friends over the recent Labor Day holiday. Julie made all the arrangements for the trip, including special wine tastings, lunches and dinners, including a private dinner in the aging room at one of the wineries.

Although I have been serious about photography about 40 years longer than she has been, she is now a better photographer than me, as regular readers of her Scottsdale Daily Photo and Viva la Voyage photo blogs are able to attest.

I am sure Julie will be showing some photos from our Sonoma wine trip in the future on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. We enjoy Sonoma County more than neighboring Napa, as it is not as crowded, less traffic, the wine tastings are more relaxed and less touristy, and the wines in the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and Alexander Valley are some of our favorites.

This week we are showing photos of the Atacama Desert on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site, including the highest altitude geyser field on earth, high in the Andes Mountains in Northern Chile.

Happy birthday Julie. Dave, Julie might have honed her photography skills quickly and very well but, you are a master at photographing Julie. You have certainly gotten some great shots of her over the years.

Oh joy of having a balcony. And yes, the Scottsdale Daily was indeed an inspiration to start the adventure of daily athens

Please have you all a wonderful day.
