You know what, I'm having problems
thinking about my new bedroom, and
whether or not it looks best in the day ...
.
.
... as opposed to the nightime.
.
.
.
Also, I have this little patch of grass, and grass is notoriously difficult to take care of.
.
.
Uh, I don't know ...
Maybe I shouldn't get this house,
but it does have a killer dungeon/wine cellar!

The picture was taken from this bluff, a
kind of no man's land between freeways.

hopefully we will find more places. It's hard to take good pictures though as the marine layer we have in our town.
