Nowadays people have a variety of ways to keep in touch with each other and to share their daily experiences. Personally I don't use Twitter or TikTok at all, but I do look at Facebook almost every day. For me it is a way to keep in touch with friends, family, and a few groups I belong to. But, for me, it is not a satisfying way to record and share our travels or pictures we take.

A feature of the Blogger platform I really like is the ability to go back and see what I wrote in past years. I don't know how many times I have used the SEARCH function on my blog to verify when we went to a particular location.
I do put links for my Blog posts on Facebook, so my friends there know when I write a new one.
For now, I want to say thank you, and welcome aboard, to my friends who commented on my first blog of the year and wrote they would be "traveling with me". It makes me feel like I am writing a letter to each of you when I do a post.
The pictures in this post were all taken Monday at the McConnell Arboretum and Gardens. It is located in the same park area as the Sundial Bridge. These orchid-like flowers grew on a tree!
We walked 2.4 miles, just a little farther than on Sunday. Monday was quite warm, but some clouds kept it from getting as hot as the day before.

This fallen log definitely says: "don't sit on me!"
We will still be in Redding, CA on Tuesday, but do not plan on any outdoor activity. Predicted temperatures are over 100°. There is a bowling alley just around the corner from the RV park we are at. We haven't bowled for 40 years. It might be fun if our old backs and knees feel up to it.
