Hi Patricia,

Yes the important thing is that you got to see it as millions did not. We were lucky to get the chance. I complained as they were running late to they cut the Huntington Beach sweep short and passed by Bourns and did not go to the pier where I was but as it passed in the distance I got 7 pictures with my good camera and 5 came out great. I like the way the beach & palm trees showed up in the pictures too so maybe that was better now that it is said and done.

Hi DeeDee,

So many people did not get it so you are not alone. The day before it landed at Edwards AFB in the California desert and I happened to be home for lunch and talk about good shots. One of the chase fighter jets had a fixed camera and the pictures were wonderful so much better seeing it on TV and if you ever go to the Science Center, I am sure they will have highlights from the flight.

I am a Southern California Realtor and have a wide variety of interests. First of all Real Estate is my real love and focus point but I do have hobbies. I am interested in photography; nature, landscaping, lunar and solar phases, but Birds are my favorites. I also enjoy scrapbooking, blogging, and traveling; beaches, deserts, and mountains. I am also involved in the community as I care about the Inland Empire and making it a better place to live. I write this daily blog composed of nature, real estate news and interesting stories in Southern Califoria and other places across the United States.
