Bragging rights
I hit tennis balls with Dennis Ralston around 1968 at the Bakersfield Racquet Club. Lake Lovelace set it up. I was very nervous. Lake laughed.

Stilted

+Shari Seibold and I used to go camping fairly frequently when the kids were growing up.  One of our frequented spots was at Morro Bay.  I'm up early, so, this area gave me plenty of time to wander before breakfast.  I would either hit the estuary or Black Hill for a couple of hours.  Early morning was really the only time of the day that things were pretty quiet and I enjoy that.

It Just Takes One

I thought this was an interesting line up.  All dove and one sparrow.  I think the sparrow was in charge.  Dove are a little slow on the uptake.

Late For Dinner

+Shari Seibold and I been to this area numerous times over the years.  I'm always amazed that folks visit the California Central Coast and yet have never been to Montana de Oro State Park.  I'm not going to show it to you.  You'll have to visit.

On My Own

If you have butterfly friendly plants in your yard, the butterflies will come.  They may even stay awhile.  The majority of butterflies in our yard were Gulf Fritillary, mainly because of the passion vine.  But, every once in awhile, a Buckeye would come flapping through the yard.  They seemed to like the golden coreopsis (golden tickseed).

Annoyance

Tropical Sage: "These Gulf Fritillary butterflies are a real pain in the butt!  Always flittering here and there and sticking their tongues in my ears.  Drives me nuts!"

Magic

Baxter is a goat who has always had lofty dreams.  He was never satisfied walking around a barnyard or butting heads with other goats.  He dreamed of exploring the other side of the fence.  One day, a magic tub salesman paid a visit to the farm and Barney jumped at the chance to own his very own magic tub.  Everyday, Baxter climbs into his magic tub, closes his eyes and visits all the places he's dreamed of.  Of course, he doesn't physically go anywhere and he's limited to things he knows like the hen house or the horse corral.  After all, he is just a goat without any book learning.  But, Baxter is happy.

Put It Here

You look at some fence lines and wonder who determined where to put the fence.  Did some agency draw a line or did the rancher just follow his cattle and fence in where they walked?

The Reach

On a whim, +Shari Seibold and I turned off on this road because it had an interesting name.  It was windy, narrow and picturesque.  In wetter years, there would be a creek flowing on one side.  The vegetation was still pretty lush and the oaks were wonderful to look at.  Most of all, it was something new and unknown to us.

Incomplete

With the continuing drought in California, we had to disconnect the hot water line in the house.  Now, we chase the granddaughter around for a few minutes and then jump in the shower.  You tend to cool off quickly with just cold water, so, the showers are shorter and we save water.

A very serious situation that you are sharing with us. So many people. I wish I could pick all up and move to Michigan. Winters aren't as bad and summers not as hot.

Dragon Fly

You lay your towel out on the sand, maybe put up an umbrella, slather a sun protective lotion on yourself and settle in for a relaxing day on the beach.  Almost asleep and then the no-see-ums attack!  Little pricks of pain and a lot of swatting.  The little flying pests commonly known as sand gnats, sand flies, sand fleas or biting midges are out to make your beach stay miserable.

Skyward

Remember the oldtime western movies where the cowboys ride their horses down the side of a steep cliff and then ride off into the sunset after reaching the bottom unscathed?  Not happening here!

Had breakfast before heading over Tioga Pass. Very good and from the look of their menu, lunch and dinner would be interesting. This is located in a Mobil gas station, so, you can gas up in at least two ways.

Toro Canyon County Park is a very secluded, beautiful, dog friendly park. Very nice facilities, picturesque. Never been many people visiting at the same time. Added bonus, some nice hikes and geocaches in the area. There is Poison Oak on the trails.
