|After 14 months of no lawn, Tessa has found nirvana here!|
|Bill and Kurt get caught up in the shady backyard.|
|Although Tessa was over his attentions quickly, sweet boy Dutch gave us lots of loving doggy eyes.|
|The family matriarch, Anne.|
While running a few errands we find three generations of goslings in a parking lot. They're all so cute!
|The "middle" aged kids.|
One of the errands is a trip to the vet for Tessa :-( who has a mild ear infection. Glad to get her taken care of before we get further into our travels.
|After my evacuation experience a couple years ago, this is unnerving!|
Driving through California's Bay Area is a challenging experience even in a car, so I'm happy I was able to route us through on a Sunday morning. It's an easy peasy drive even with the wind that seems to be following us.
|Sunday morning - the only way to fly!|
Our next stop, and the last with family for awhile, is Ukiah, California. When we stayed at the Redwoods Empire Fairgrounds in 2015 the sites were filled with stickers and we swore we'd never do it again. Fast forward to 2021, the recent reviews say no stickers, and it's much less expensive than the Willits' option we did last time.
|The large roulette wheel on the ceiling really catches your eye!|
|These giant dry thistles are stunning. I get a pic so I can remember to try and find some for the house.|
|Hard to see, but this musical duo on keyboards and drums are wonderful. Lots of boogy-woogy and a powerful female singer.|
|First stop is for zoomies in the sand along Big River.|
|Spring is bright and colorful in Mendocino.|
It's going to take a few days to absorb all the green!!
