I took them for a nice & frankly, just for the heck of it drive through the nearby Old Folsom. We didn't opt to do any shopping there, but we did enjoy the beautiful old homes.
On the quiet & shady back street of Old Folsom there were a couple of very old autos parked. The red one here has a nice picnic basket in a special carrying place behind the spare wheel - see it? That must have been the equalent of a fancy cup holder back in 'ought o' two'.
This equally red, not quite so shiny car looks like it was just a work horse. It's obviously out to pasture now though, and I'm sure it enjoys all the TLC the roadster in the picture above gets.
Now you know no visit from my San Diego buddies happens without us going out on 'Deer Hunt' in Sunrise on the American River Parkway.
|This doe (photo by Joann) seemed a tad moth eaten. Wonder what unwanted adventures she's survived?|
|She was the first deer we spotted for the evening|
|What happened to the Turkey Roost Oak Tree? Storm? It looks like it just fell down. Weak root system or ?|
|There was a turkey parade - young Toms, crossing the park road|
|Climbing up the hillside|
|The five of them, gathering at the base of their new roosting tree|
|All snug and safe for the night|
If ever there was a parade to enjoy, that is one without floats or bands, this was it! The Toms marched up that hill, then before our eyes, they shot skyward and up into the gigantic oak tree.
|OK,here's the bed count - One... two...|
|Three, four and five! Can you see 'em all?|
