A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!


A mill ponds beauty in Lassen County

Knowing the day would come when I would just get lucky with pictures in and around "my mountain" I still am not sure what to do about it. One picture or two today? No way! It just can not be done by me, not today. Today my "hubby" asked me what I was going to do for my picture for today. I had stated I was going to the mill pond which is behind our house and take some pictures of these bird houses someone has built out there. He asked me if I wanted to walk around it, (the mill pond.) After all these years living here I had never done so.

After the shock of him asking me and actually wanting to go I grabbed my camera and off we went! Following behind this is the beauty of Lassen County I saw today
Rounding the path

I see this on the left

A little further down and to the right. I just love the way the sun shone here and I was not even trying for that!

It was hard to believe my luck in getting these pictures of the mill pond (almost dry now) with the trees reflections!

This one above and the one below I think are my favotites for the day
Almost completely around the mill pond now
It was a beautiful walk for a picture(s) a day. WOW!!!

Nice, such beautiful landscape. Isn't it interesting that sometimes you capture something you never expected. I love the sunshine shot.

Very pretty! I love when the water is still and you can get great reflection!

Howdy Hi!
I would love to hear what you have to say. Why not leave me a comment?

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
