We were up bright and early this morning and took a nice little drive, please join us.
Sit back and enjoy.
The sky was cloudy and the weather cool and it was a great day for a drive. We've crossed the river and are headed up and over those foot hills.
The road is a steep, winding road. Guard rails are present every here and there, which is rare in California. As a native 'Flat-lander', the lack of guard rails on the mountain roads here used to bother me, causing anxiety, sweaty palms, and abdominal distress. Now I am just thankful when there's no ice.
We reach our destination mid-morning and are greeted by these lovely January blooms, brightening the dark cloudy day......
This pair wasn't exactly greeting us; it was more like, "who are you and what do you want?" They checked us out a bit and then casually strolled away. They act like they own the joint....
But they don't..... WE DO! Hurray! We have our 'little log cabin' in the woods.
I am feeling blessed, excited and very overwhelmed. Did I mention excited?
