Hollister, California is a real town that has been around since the 1870s. Unlike the fictional town created by a corporate clothing company, Hollister is no where near a beach. The town is about 45 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Seagulls occasionally make their way over the mountains. Hopefully, they are able to find their way back.
This past Friday was one of our wonderful rainy days (just like today). When I was downtown, I took this shot of blue sky breaking through the clouds north of town while grey clouds were bringing rain south of us.
