The Birds!

We had originally planned a picnic by the ocean but we ended up in Bodega Bay to see the film locations for the Birds, lunch could wait...  It was a beautiful day and I was really thrilled to see the school house that was used for the movie, Alfred Hitchcock is one of my favorites.  To make things even better, there is a cute little antique shop right across the road from the school house. In the antique store across from the school house.  Me in front of the house.  Bird Curtains! love!!
