These doggies participated in the 'doggie surfing' competition in San Diego on Saturday, June 4, 2011.
This little lady is Kalani.
She had a nice long ride!

This is Louie!
He made me laugh!
Gotta LOVE that face!

This is Louie's friend...can't remember his name...

This guy was trained to push his own surf board out until he was deep enough to hop on...perfection!
...a flawless performance...!!!

Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow, Ruby Tuesday, My World Tuesday / Balloon Glow

 Clock on photos to enlarge!
It seems I can't resist a 'balloon glow' or every combination of color I can create!

 This is when the balloon was inflated and then the heat lifted it to an upright position...it's amazing to watch the process go from packed in the back of a van to ready for launch!
Although, these balloons were tethered to the ground for the night-time 'glow' event.

This is just a sample of the 'gazillion' photos I took this past Friday night, June 3, 2011.
