I just went to visit my daughter Dre,

in Pacific Grove California.

The roads were downright Hollerific,
with scenery just like Hollerdom.
There were Hollerish folks,

like this army veteran who loves butterflies and Hillary Clinton. (You have to play, “Where’s Hillary? and look for her in the first butterfly house photo. Click to enlarge to see her clearly!)
The critters were different,
but it’s nice to know there are Hollers everywhere,
with creative folks, living in natural places, with wild animals,
that are protected.
Cheers to you from Dre’s Holler~

  1. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    One of the most amazing trips David and I made was the from San Diego to Seattle.. I love that whole coastline and found several places by the sea that I would have very happily settled. Cindy Knoke visited her daughter in California and of course could not resist finding just the perfect examples of this wonderful coastline.. That seal had done this before.. my right side.. just my right side..

  2. Love them all, the photographs, the Hollerific sites, the veteran, the sea animals, if I could I’d move in a flash. How fortunate your daughter is to live here πŸ™‚

    • Of the three coastal sisters, Carmel, Monterey and Pacific Grove, PG is my favorite. Monterey is too crowded and Carmel too snooty, much like my hometown of La Jolla. Pacific Grove is more low-key and unspoiled and of course the near-coastal rural areas are my hands down favorites. You have the beach and the empty, natural, peace.

  3. I love the butterfly house…and the seal (baby sea lion?) is too cute! Amazing how big they get…I’ve seen Steller’s sea lions up close, and they are massive.

    I hope that you had a nice visit – it looks as if you did!

  4. Aww, so your daughter found another Holler which looks fun and amazing, filling in any holes or gaps in her missing the real Holler where heart will always be, in spirit. Lovely, Cindy. ❀

  5. I love Pacific Grove and the Elkhorn Slough. Your photos of the harbor seals were especially fantastic, Cindy, but all were fun. And I saw Hillary! Made me laugh. Thanks for this great post, I’m glad you had a pleasant time with your daughter.


  6. I love your photos as always, Cindy, and the gracious thoughts that go with them. Beautiful land and sea, beautiful people and creatures are everywhere if we look πŸ™‚ You left me with a smile.


  7. Pacific Grove is beautiful. I love that tribute to Hillary in the Butterfly House photo! What a funky place! The seals do look different from others that I’ve seen.


  8. How blessed your daughter is to live in such a beautiful place (and you to visit there Cindy!!) We went to Pacific Grove on our honeymoon (41 years ago!) and have sweet memories of that place…


  9. Really enjoyed this trip. I particularly love the colorful Butterfly house and the adorable seal. Incredible photos. Happy you got to see your daughter and had a wonderful time!


  10. Hello Cindy. Don’t know how else to communicate. I’m honoured that you’re following snippetsandsnaps, because your posts are so photographically splendid. However I need to tell you that that blog is in recess till mid-March 2017 while I’m living in Warsaw. I’d hate you to think I’m a lazy poster!

    By the way, I love your tag-line. I caught myself thinking the other day “I’ll have to go to that train museum. (Train museum???? Me??) It would make a good post.”


    • Thank you for such kind thoughts and have a wonderful time in Warsaw, a city I want to visit to honor my Polish grandmother. And I agree, train museums are always fascinating! πŸš†
