Iris Festival And Rock Show

You do not need to go very far to find interesting events and activities to do within driving distance.  Yesterday, I met with my friend Aki and visited the annual Yucaipa Iris Festival.  We managed to see the rock show and vendors, but for some reason, we missed the iris part:

The Yucaipa Valley Jem and Mineral Society was represented.  I have yet to go polish rocks this year.  It seems other things in life get priority for now.  But, I do miss it, and before the year is out, I will make a consious effort to do so.

We have also had a colleague of DH’s from when he taught at the university in Sydney visiting.  It’s always nice to see old friends that we haven’t seen in years.   It brought back good memories of our life in Australia.  Now if we could only manage the time and finances to make a visit down there…
