Thursday,  July 26, 2019 found us at Montalvo (link to hikes).  The small group can be seen here on the porte cochere of the Villa Montalvo.

On Thursday , July 12 ,we visited the lazy elephant seals at Ano Nuevo.  It was beautiful and cool.  Afterwards we made a visit to  Pie Ranch organic farm and, of course, we had to have lemon pie for lunch!  (Note, the Pie Ranch link is a little slow – be patient).

Last month, the hiking group took a walk in Garrod Ranch.  We were captivated by these horses, and so the group took pictures and sent them to Kay.  You never know what inspiration you may find on one of these adventures!

On June 28, we had a wonderful (free day for old folks)  visiting the animals at the Happy Hollow Zoo in San Jose.  It’s a fabulous zoo with wonderful creatures.  Some of our gang rode the wild animal merri-go-round.
