Left Coast Crime and Then Some

Evocative Characters. Intriguing Crime. Compelling Stories.

I still haven't settled back to normal (whatever that is) since Left Coast Crime. After the conference in Monterey, my husband and I headed south on Highway 1, then looped inland from Ventura up to Sequoia National Park. We got home late Wednesday. Sillily, I thought I'd be back to my routine immediately.

Didn't happen. Hoping for tomorrow...

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy a couple of photo highlights. (We took around 600, so be happy I'm only posting 5!)

The Last Panel of LCC
With Donnell Bell, Warren Easley, Cathy Perkins and Terry Shames

A wonderful meetup with Sheila Lowe. Time flew!

They grow big pineapples in California!

At Sequoia National Park. The snow surprised us! We only saw  rain in the weather forecast. Oh! And we stayed in the same suite where George W. Bush stayed when the park reopened in 2001. Kinda cool.

They grow some big trees in California too!

Here's to the memories of a wonderful LCC in Monterey and a huge excited shout-out for LCC 2015 in Portland!

    1. Thanks, AD. You should see the deluge I didn't post! Several have gone up and will be going up on Facebook, otherwise known as The Outlet For Those Who Must Share.

  2. It was great to see you. Thanks for sharing. I love the redwoods, but I've never been there with snow.

    1. I missed spending some quality time together, but it was great to see you too.

  3. That tree shot is awesome! Certainly puts the world into perspective rather nicely.

    1. Yep. We are far "speckier" than we usually consider.
