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!


Herons and Ponderosa's

One of those days where I was fortunate to get a bunch of different pictures. First off Dave and I went to Young's Market when Dave stopped real fast and started backing up. Before I could say anything Dave pointed out a Heron on a stump in Robbers creek. He stopped I got out and did the best I could do with my camera and the angle and where I was standing. I am quite happy with them under the circumstances.
Then awhile later Dave and I decided to go take the dogs for a run out at Moonlight road. Wow, It was a beautiful day and a cold one, but I am quite happy with what I found through my camera lens!

You have to look kind of hard, but that is my husband Dave looking up to the top of this Ponderosa Pine. I actually could not get the whole tree in the lens of my camera. And Dave, well you can only barely see him in the enormity of this HUGE pine!

beautiful scenes as always. That Heron sitting behind the willows, WOW. We had Ponderosa's too, they are a wonderful tree, and capable of reaching amazing heights. Mostly I just love looking at the mountain scenery, and thinking of home.

Hey again, thanks Eric. I always enjoy you stopping by and I so very much appreciate the comments you leave. We have quite a few Ponderosa's around here. What took me so off guard about this one is where it was at and its height amongst the other tree's! It was just a trip. As far as the heron goes, we have them up here, but to be able to actually get out of a car and get a picture of it sitting where it was at was such a wonderful surprise!

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!
