Yesterday, I went up to visit William in Modesto and then we went to Sonora, California. I am not incredibly familiar with my California locations, but Sonora is what is considered the “Foothills”. It’s around where a lot of the settlers came during the Gold Rush. Certain parts of it looked really Kentucky like, but just certain parts. It’s a lot more hilly than I’m used to seeing in the Central Valley, that’s for sure.
Anyway, a few things that I did while I was there…went to a potluck, played with Sofie, William’s 18-month old niece, went to old town Columbia (it’s an old West-looking town) to watch his sister do poi dancing, visited an apple orchard and distillery (I learned how hard apple cider was made), and planted pomegranates. It was a busy day!
Anyway, here’s a few pics. It is absolutely beautiful there. Very picturesque.
William planting his pomegranates. I helped with shoveling and planting. I even got my hands dirty!
This one made me laugh…I didn’t realize till WIlliam pointed it out, but Frankie is totally peeing here!
Me on a mossy rock. Can you believe this is in his sister’s backyard??
Here’s William pondering the great outdoors.
Here’s William’s sister Heather doing her poi dancing in downtown Columbia . I think they look a LOT alike.
And her cute little girl Sofie. I think she liked me! It was my first time meeting her.
Anyway, just wanted to share. Hope you have a GREAT week!
Until next time Swellions!
Sofie, definitely liked you. I’m rather fond of you myself;) Thank you for all your help. I had a lot of fun.
That looks like you had a great time. William has a lovely family. His sister looks so much like him.
Hey doll! What a beautiful area that is… does William’s sister go to Burning Man? We are already making our plans for Transformus in July, and I have a friend who does poi dancing that goes with us to burns.
