Opa’s Favorite Photos

Here’s a more recent photo, one that I captured with the camera in my Samsung cellphone. It was taken while in Fremantle, Australia with extended family in 2015.

My great granddaughter, Kaleiyah, loves animals. I call this photo, Beauty and the Beast. It was taken in 2014 while visiting my good friend, Jerry McClung. The private joke with my friend is that the name he gave to his horse is, Beauty.

I love landscapes. Here’s one of Napa Valley. My wife and I were there for a small family reunion in 2005.  Using Adobe PhotoShop to make this panorama, I stiched together two normal shots that I took with my little Sony CyberShot.

Here’s another panorama.  It’s of Denali National Park. It was made in the same way as the last panorama, but this time using three separate shots that were taken in 2002 while we were on vacation in Alaska.

This is me, my wife, and my wife’s dad, Popo.  No, Popo wasn’t his real name; it was a tag that our second son gave to him years ago.  Sadly, Popo passed away in December of ’05 at the ripe, old age of 92.  He was a good friend, a generous father, and a great traveling partner.  We all miss him greatly.

Our ship, The Caribbean Princess, along with two smaller cruise ships in-port at St. Thomas Island in the Eastern Caribbean.

This is the whole Garry clan, including the cats and dogs of my oldest son’s household.  The picture was taken Christmas 2004.

Below is a picture of archaeological remains of the Mayan city at Tulum on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.  I visited this site during our Western Caribbean cruise the summer of 2006.

We had a foreign exchange student stay with us last year (2006/7), Betsy Jeong from the Republic of Korea.  Below is a picture of us with her on our “River Walk” tour of San Antonio.

We visited Lake Tahoe for a family reunion over the 4th of July weekend 2009. Two of our three sones joined us along with my brothers and sister. While there, our sister remarried at a location overlooking the beautiful blue waters.
