Quite a lot of fluffy clouds were passing through the other day. Hopefully some of them joined forces and made rain when the reached the Sierras.

Both horses turned to look at me. "Who's that?" they seemed to say. The white horse came over to greet me, probably thinking I had some kind of yummy snack. When it realized that I was just going to pet him, it went back to the grass.

This El Camino Real Bell stands in the front yard of the Native Daughters of the Golden West Adobe at 203 Fourth Street in San Juan Bautista. Cast from a mold of an original El Camino Real bell, it was dedicated in 2010, the year that "The Gold Dust Girls" of Parlor No. 179 celebrated its 100th anniversary.
El Camino Real was the foot path that the Spanish padres took between the California Missions, from San Diego to Sonoma. In the early 1900s, bells were erected every one to two miles to mark this historical route as well as to promote tourism in the state. By 1914, over 400 markers were placed.
