Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 262: California Capitol Holiday Tree

Mr. E and I weren't able to attend the holiday tree lighting at the California Capitol, but I enjoy seeing the lights every time I walk by on my way home in the evening.  According to the state Senate web site, "The Capitol Christmas tree arrived on November 4, 2014. It is a White Fir from the Latour State Forest near Redding. The tree stands 53 feet tall."

The first image below shows the tree being lifted into place and decorated, and the second photo shows the tree lit up at night.

I also found this picture of Governor Brown at last year's tree lighting, and I'm particularly fond of seeing his corgi participating in the festivities!

That is a HUGE corgi! Comes up to Jerry's waist. Looks more like a lion! :)
