Only in . . . California?

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that, upon occasion, I pause to marvel at the wonders of Texas. My “Only in Texas” series often includes tasty tidbits from the Boerne Star, my local newspaper. Well, while I was in California over Christmas vacation, my mother urged me to do […]

California Memories

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

My family and I are in California for the holidays, seeing family and friends, hanging out at old haunts, etc. The other day I took a walk along one of the lakes in Irvine. (Yes, it is man-made.) Texas has some fantastic sunsets. But Irvine doesn’t do poorly in this regard either.

Both photos were taken […]

Some Things I’ll Miss About California, Part 4

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

Yes, I’ll miss California’s ocean, and the High Sierra, and preaching to my congregation at Irvine Presbyterian Church. I’ll miss the Regatta Café, my favorite restaurant, not to mention In-N-Out Burger. (My taste in food runs the gamut.)

Saw lots of this.

And this.

Yes, I did take these while driving. Not to worry. You can see there isn’t much traffic on the […]

Some Things I’ll Miss About California, Part 2

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

Yesterday I wrote that I will miss the Pacific Ocean. That’s surely true. But my favorite part of California isn’t the coastline, but rather the High Sierra. I have loved hiking in these magnificent mountains, either by myself, or with my family. The photo below shows my daughter and me in front of Blue Lake […]

Some Things I’ll Miss About California

Monday, October 1st, 2007

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that, after sixteen years, I have just finished up as pastor of Irvine Presbyterian Church in California. As of today, I am officially the Senior Director and Scholar-in-Residence for Laity Lodge, a ministry in the Hill Country of Texas, outside of San Antonio. I’m spending […]
