It's that time of year where more and more Iceland Poppies are appearing in gardens around my neighborhood.

This is the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, Orange County, California.
The main sanctuary was constructed with 10,000 panes of rectangular glass and was designed to withstand an 8.0 magnitude earthquake.
It is a Christian Protestant church with an international congregation.
The Sunday worship services are also televised on the "Hour of Power" each week.
Up to 2900 worshipers can be seated in this "mega-church."
Considered a southern California landmark, this church attracts many daily visitors year round.
My family has attended a few special programs and services in this church...but, we are not members here.
Click on photos to enlarge!
The bell tower is quite unique.

These photos were taken at Mammoth Mountain and June Lake this past weekend...but, not by me.
They are of my niece, Sara, and her friend, Chelsea.
The Sierra Nevada Mountain resorts got a whole lot of the "white stuff" during last week's California storms!
They had the best time ever!
And, for Watery Wednesday...this is water in its frozen state!
ABC Wednesday / B is for "Best of Times"
Valentine's Day is coming!

Huntington Beach, California
It's Sunday, January 24th...
It's a beautiful day at the beach in southern California.
This little girl thinks it's warm enough to touch the water!
And, I did too...
a LONG time ago!
Some enjoy a walk on the beach...
That's what I like!
or on the pier...I like to do this too!
Some feed the sea gulls...
Others drag their stuff across the beach to get close to the water...
beach volleyball is addicting...
To these guys, It's not even cold!
After all, it IS Jan. 24th
