I’ve been processing a wild and woolly trip to So Cal.
I’ll be posting items out of order, that is for sure.
I’m adding color to many, and some are images from photos taken.
Starting with Tooling around Mitchell’s home town, not the first time we’ve done this,
but the first time we’ve done it alone, and we had a good time doing it.
Telegraph Rd. runs right through farming country. The look of that area spells home to me, and is much the way Dana Point looked when I first moved (it is a couple hours south of Ventura County). Farming is still valued. Dana Point was orange groves and fields of strawberries and corn and the Ventura area stayed that way to a great degree.
Houses like the Faulkner House, top, are hidden behind groves and
you see the tops of palms and avocado trees (yum) and Morton bay fig trees.
Live oaks are way up in the hills, and yes, home home home to both of us.
