A Little Drive in the Country....

Over my Christmas vacation, I drove up to Northern California to visit my sisters, nieces & nephews.  It was a wonderful break from my regular work routine!
I spent the first half with my sister Nancy, the Artist, and on Christmas Eve we decided to take a little drive in country.  Nancy paints and thought it would be a good day to get some shots for potential new paintings, so off we went.

Here are some of the photos that I took with my little camera, a Nikon Coolpix point & shoot that lives in my purse....

I just loved this spool, sitting in the field.

 I wonder what's at the end of this road?


There were lots of big boulders randomly scattered around the countryside.
I wonder if a giant was tossing them around.

As my friend Izy said, "What a great wonky road!"

We were somewhere between Lincoln & Wheatland, CA, and along the way we passed tangerine groves, a new winery that will be opening in a few more months, cattle, horses, 2 deer, and even saw a sign at one house for a fused glass artist. 

It had been overcast & raining the 2 days prior to this day, and it absolutely POURED on Christmas Day.
But for this one day...just a little slice o' heaven!


  1. Ahhh California! Love that wonky road. Nothing like a ride in the country to blow away the cobwebs!

  2. Spent many a day in that area. Always like it.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
