I got to Bob’s place around 11:30. He was working in his yard trying to break down an old stump in one of his garden enclosures.
He took a break and we sat around for a while visiting.
After bit we went over to where he is working and he talked me through his garden plans.
He is also building a closed in chicken yard.
You can get all the details at his blog “Bobs Eyes”.
A Jeep Ride in the Redwoods.
Bob’s family has a large chunk of land that is very hilly and covered in Redwoods. There are several dirt trails winding around and over the hills.
We decided to take a jeep ride in the Redwoods.
Our first stop was at their water tanks. I can’t remember if Bob told me that these tanks held 8 thousand Gallons or 80,000 but either way they have a lot of water storage. And all the water comes from the springs Bob has developed in the hills.
We left the water tanks and followed this narrow road.
At one place a big Fir tree had fallen . Bob just built a temporary road over the tree.
It looks a little narrow but it is passable.
Top of the Hill.
Eventually we wound our way through the trees and made it to the top of the hill.
Here we have a view of the valley where the town of Guerneville sits.
Spring is in full bloom up here. The yellow ones are Monkey flowers.
Back Down the Hill.
We headed back down the hill and stopped where Bob’s brother is cutting firewood.
On the way back to Bob’s house we stopped to check out Bob’s brother’s chicken setup.
Once we were back at Bob’s place we sat around for a while and noticed these two lizards fighting.
You might notice that the darker one is missing the end of his tail. It was lost during this battle.
I left Bob to finish his work and headed home around 4:30.
It was a fun visit.
We invited Joanne, Dave and our friend Loraine to come over this afternoon to play cards.
Of course that meant we spent the morning doing house work.
They arrived around 2:00 and after visiting for a while we decided to play cards.
This is a different game than what we play in Quartzsite. Down there we play a game called 5 Crowns.
This game is called Jokers Rummy. It is a lot of fun.
After the first game we took a break for supper.
We all got into Patti’s car and went to Ozzie Burgers, an old fashioned burger place not far away.
When we got back home we visited for a while.
I cut up the frozen Razzleberry Pie that I baked and we had dessert.
After dessert Loraine went home. Joanne, Dave, Patti and I played another game of Jokers Rummy. J&D left around 9:15.
Another good day.
