I made it to Arden Faire Mall for walk last night, but no one else was able to make it (I waited to about 6:15pm). This was fine with me, since it was such short notice. I also got in some extra window shopping, and new tea tasting a TEAVANA (y... Read more

Hummingbirds sipping nectar from manzanitas today
