I Spy . . . A Little Old Cute Airplane


I spy with my little eye a classic single-engine airplane proudly on display at the Frazier Lake Airport in Hollister.  Actually, I saw several sweet antique aircraft last month there.

Frazier Lake Airpark is a small, private airport several miles to the north of Downtown Hollister. It's located on Frazier Lake Road, off Shore Road.

On the first Saturday of the month (which is tomorrow, August 6, 2016), the airport has an exhibit of antique aircraft, such as the Cessna 180, Stearman, and Stinson, on its grounds. The display is free and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

For for information about Frazier Lake Airpark, check out its website.

Enterprise Road


You're looking east on Enterprise Road, near the intersection with Southside Road. The mountain in the distance is Santa Ana Peak.

May Mustard


A fair view of yellow mustard on Fairview Road.

Have a wonderful weekend.

A Tropical Vibe


Close my eyes for a second. Feel the sun's warmth on my body. I can almost believe I'm in Hawaii, rather than traveling along Union Road looking towards the Gabilan Range. Sweet Aloha!

A Reflection of the Gabilans


I spied this reflection of the Gabilan Range while the Husband and I drove through the San Juan Valley after a very nice rainy day.

See you tomorrow.

Union Road Hills at Sunset


I love looking up at the hills as the Husband drives along Union Road. Anytime of the day. This photo was taken a couple of months ago.

Driving at Twilight


The Husband turned right from Highway 156 onto Union Road. I leaned out the window and the camera went Click!

Rock!


The things that catch your eye when you're driving a windy road. For instance, up on Lone Tree Road the other day, I saw this huge rock on a hillside. It was quite handsome standing near the top in the late afternoon sunlight.

I wonder how the huge rock got there and if it used to sit among boulder mates. From what I could see, the big guy is surrounded by smaller rocks, which reminded me of a sheepdog tending its flock.

Wandering the Backroads


Here's another view from Hospital Road, off Southside Road.  This time, I'm looking northwesterly.

Beauty


If I could add a definition to the word beauty in the dictionary, this is what I would put:
beau-ty n.   San Benito County

Santa Ana Mountain in the Mist


Recognize Santa Ana Mountain? It looks nearby in the photo but it's truly far off in the distance. I took this photo from Thomas Road, off of Southside Road.

Cows, Mist, and Green.


This morning I went searching for a picture of water in the San Benito River. Couldn't find one. But, I did find this sweet scene off of Southside Road. Moooo.

Going Around the Bend


I like this bend on Union Road, the one by Riverside Road. It reminds me that we do indeed live in a rural area, no matter how developed we get. Even, if one day, the orchards and vegetable fields along this bend are gone. Hopefully, that doesn't ever happen. Knock on wood.

A December Morning


The Three Sisters look closer than they are. I took this yesterday morning from John Smith Road near Guerra Cellars.

See you tomorrow.

Loving the Back Roads


Riding a motorcycle or scooter is a great way to enjoy the back roads of San Benito County. Pedaling a bicycle is truly fun, too. Okay, so is driving a car.

Giggle. And, a big smile.

Day In, Day Out

San Juan Valley

Lots of very hard work go into farming and ranching every day. It doesn't matter whether temperatures are over 100 degrees or in the low 40s, nor whether it's windy, foggy, or raining.

Many thanks to the men and women who do the backbreaking work of growing, nurturing, and harvesting food for everyone!

Beautiful Countryside


On Southside Road, near Enterprise Road, someone recently planted several Italian cypress trees. That's going to be an even more amazing scene when they get bigger.

Time to Go Home


As I was riding my bicycle yesterday, I noticed the goats on Enterprise Road. Of course, I had to stop and photos. I watched a black and white goat for a while. It was apart from the others, gazing up at the barn. It took a few steps up the hill, stopped, walked a few more steps, stopped. Then, slowly it made its way up the hill as if drawn by some alluring music.

When I looked at this photo hours later, I noticed goats hanging out in the shade of the barn and in the fenced area to the side. Maybe the black and white goat was missing its partner. One can imagine.

Until tomorrow.

Looking Upward on Enterprise Road


It was a beautiful blue sky earlier this morning. Now, it feels like the fog is coming back in. Unless. Perhaps. Maybe. Gathering rain clouds. We can hope.
