See Beautiful: It's Easy to See Around Us

This is our first time finally remembering to join the See Beautiful blog hop, hosted by Sugar the Golden Retriever. I love the idea of this hop, but I just kept forgetting to join. Well, I finally remembered!

We always try to see beautiful, especially when we are out on our walks together.

We see it in the grand vistas... (This is a view from one spot on our walks. The air was so clear the other day, you could see the islands in Mexico).

To the blooms near our feet...
From an amazing sunset...

To something as simple as a street sign covered in bougainvillea:

We also love the fall season, and - contrary to popular belief - we do get that here in Southern California!

And it's here:
And here:

And here:

And of course we see beautiful every time we look at this sweet face:

{This Moment} See Beautiful is a once a month Blog Hop, every 2nd Friday of the month. Simply create a blog post that made your day, week, and/or month … inspiring you in Seeing Beauty.

Blog Hop inspired by See Beautiful.

Thanks to Sugar the Golden Retriever for hosting the See Beautiful blog hop! 


  1. It really is nice to see the colored leaves in California! Funny, we took the same things in our pictures, but they are so different in our corners of the world. That in itself is See Beautiful.

  2. Those are some very beautiful things indeed. Especially the last one ;)

    Best wishes Molly

  4. Those photos are just wonderful :) love them
    Welcome to join my blog

  5. We get it here in Florida too, though many people won't admit it. So beautiful in your neck of the woods!

  6. Gah! Why does Google put its Sign-Out button so close to the comment box?! My fingers got a mind of their own and clicked Sign-Out instead of Publish.

    You live in a beautiful area!

  7. That bloom is so is the sunset and all the Fall colors. Have a Beautiful weekend.

  8. Beautiful photos Jackie. I love the colors you have there!! And that sweet face too.

  9. We have had some very beautiful sunsets lately. Which, sadly, I often see while sitting in traffic on the 5. But it makes gridlock seem not so bad.

    1. See, now that's the idea! Take an "ugly" situation and see beautiful! We saw a lovely one while stuck in the traffic on the way home from Disneyland the other day.

  10. Wow amazing sunset! I had to double check to see if these were vacation photos! You live in such a beautiful area.

  11. The multi/mized colors of the rose is Beautiful. Witnessing sunset is amazing. Golden LOVE the fall trees view. Golden Thanks for sharing and joining our hop. Happy Seeing Beauty. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  12. Lovely pictures. My experiences with a camera have always been disastrous, but you are starting to inspire me.

  13. What a sweet post...that last pic was the most beautiful! So if you have fall and the trees lose their leaves, how long until the new leaves come back in? A day or two???

  14. Gorgeous photos! You are very lucky to live on the seacoast in such a beautiful area. I especially love Rita's sweet face though!

  15. ohhhh what beautiful photos!!! Love the sunset one the most!

  16. Such beauty you see, and yes Rita is the most beautiful. I love the pretty orange and pink flower shot!

  17. Thank you so much for seeing beautiful with us! We love the way you captured beautiful and brought it to our attention to celebrate. Thank you!
