Photo Fun on Friday

August 31, 2012

Happy Friday, dear readers! Can you believe it is Friday…again? The time is just flying by. This week I just wanted to share some fun in the form of photos because who doesn’t like looking at some lovely photos on Friday?

I’ve finally gotten time to travel after finishing up my schoolwork and I went to visit one of my dearest friends in Monterey. She happens to be an aviculturist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium (because she is amazing) and so of course, we went to the aquarium.

It was awesome because I saw some of these sea nettles by the wharf when I went walking after visiting the aquarium.

I also finally made it out to Gilroy Gardens. It is an lovely theme park–very family friendly and much more relaxing than any other theme park I’ve ever visited. I loved the gardens, including these amazing circus trees.

Gilroy Gardens also did an amazing job with signage as can be seen from the sign at the entrance to the Monarch Garden. It reminded me of how important it is to have beautiful signage that conveys a clear message to the public. It’s a concept that libraries and archives that sometimes forget when putting up handmade signage. (And you thought it would just be about pretty photos.)

Also, I made it down to the Alameda County Fair, which was a lot of fun and the first fair that I’ve been to in quite some time. The highlight of the fair was definitely seeing all the cute bunnies.

And, for the PSA for the week: if you use Dropbox, you should turn on two-step verification. Let your friends and patrons know about this extra level of security for your account.

Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend, dear readers. I’ll be offline for the next week or so as I’m off traveling again, but then I’ll be back with more information to share. Allons-y!

      Thanks! 🙂 Happy to help re: Dropbox; it’s so useful that I’m glad it’s gotten another layer of security.
