Odds and Ends

Saturday, February 25, 2012

We drove over by Palmdale Lake. The Seagulls were having a ball.

As I was walking back to the car I noticed this Raven. It kept picking up a twig, then looking up at a tall bush/tree. It was deciding where the nest should go. After I took this picture it flew over by the lake with the twig.

We drove by a business where you can pick up a bus or shuttle that drives down to Los Angeles Airport. It looks like the lot also stores odds and ends, like this cute Trolley Car.

We headed to the pet store to pick up the dog's dry food, when my Hubby spotted this cute Shetland Pony. I started talking to it, and told him/her I wanted a nice picture. So it walked over to me and just stood there. I then noticed it had blue eyes. They are so pretty. I took a pic of its face so you can see the eyes.

A few days ago while we were driving around we came across this house. It is so luxurious that I am wondering if the place is going to be a retreat. If not then someone has a lot of money to spend, and they want to show it lol. They are still in the process of building it, so we will go back and look at it again.

This is the entrance to the round pen, where you can exercise or ride your horse. Note: They have another round pen just like it on the other end of the property.

This is the gate at the end of the driveway

    Love the horse. The trolley bus looks nice. We used to have double decker ones here when I was young. The house looks good with lots of room.

    You take the very best pictures. I love the blue eyed pony. He/she is so cute. I can't wait to hear what the building is.

    Awww-what a cute pony! My experience with the Shetland Ponies when I was a kid, was not nice....always seemed mean to me! But, this one seemed ok. Gorgeous house-wonder what it would be like to have that much money! Wow!!!! Seagulls always fascinate me! Thanks for sharing! emoticon

    Animals with blue eyes just seem so intense to me, like huskies or aussies with blue eyes. That house is sure something! Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live someplace fancy and then I figure it would just be too much for me. I'll take my little place and just admire the fancy ones from afar!
