Entropy, 1

Whenever we have a free day, John and I like to explore. You start out with a vague plan and it always, always changes. That's the beauty of it.

On Thanksgiving day we discovered a place I had never noticed before. You may have seen it, but in my six years in Pasadena I had probably driven by it a thousand times without knowing it was there.

A bit of a mystery for today. More to come.

Oh, wow! Looks like a starry sky and the Milky Way down there in the puddle. Great reflections, Petrea. I can't wait for the mystery to be revealed.

John Sandel said...

I don't care if my plan changes, as long as it includes you.

Just amazing and mistery photo, Petrea. I like it!

Not sure what that is, but it looks like a perch several hundred feet above a forest.

way to create anticipation :)

Trish said...

I've got a guess, but I won't spoil the fun.

And John...awwww! sweet!

Glad you two enjoy your adventures, even more glad you share them with us!

Before I met John I used to take adventures on my own. I'd find a spot on the map and target it, then head in that direction. Most of the time I wouldn't get there because I'd spot an interesting detour, or I'd get there and the target spot wasn't interesting but I'd keep going and find something that was. I spent a lot of weekends doing this.

Imagine my joy at finding a partner who likes to do this with me! JS, I feel the same.

We did this one right in town. Targeted a spot, headed there and even got there, then found something we didn't expect.

TheChieftess said...

Interesting shot!!! Now I'm all afire with curiosity!!!

Petrea Burchard said...

Ahah, "blurp." Susan, you'll fit in at our house.

Don't worry, PA, I never would have known either.

We shall see, Chieftess. I'm sure many of you know this, but I had no idea.

Bellis said...

It looks familiar but I can't place it right now. Hope you put us out of our misery soon.

Petrea Burchard said...

I'll bet you know it, Bellis. You've explored everything and everywhere.

Ms M said...

The colors and designs are intriguing. Things to imagine....

Margaret said...

oooohhh. Where are you?

Petrea Burchard said...

hahahahaha Ms. M, you made me laugh.

Margaret, I'm right smack dab in Pasadena. Smack dab, I tell you.

Trish said...

I'm in with a "blurp"!

A few years ago, we had some business to conduct about 30 miles away. Rather than take the freeways home, I cranked the GPS up and just took a road, when it stopped, we made a turn, then another, then another. All amongst farm country, which isn't hard, since we have a farm less than 5 minutes away. While it took us a few hours to get home, we had a lovely afternoon looking at farm houses and animals and relaxing.

wv: crump...oh, not touching that one!

Petrea Burchard said...

That's the way to do it, Trish. If you've got the time, let yourself get just a little lost.
