Morning Read

There is, if we’re lucky, a brief time each morning when breakfast is eaten, dishes are washed and we settle down to read the paper. A treasured private moment before the day’s events begin to intrude.

Careful Daddy There’s A Puddle

We were walking this morning in Sonoma County’s newest park, Tolay Lake. The area is stunning!

It’s dedication yesterday was something of a formality, as the 3,400-acre park opened in October 2018 after its master plan was officially approved. It’s accessible via an entrance on Cannon Lane, off Lakeville Highway southeast of Petaluma.

The park currently offers more than 11 miles of multi-use trails crossing grasslands and ridges with views of San Pablo Bay and beyond. Currently many of its trails are closed due to flooding.

However, the wet ground didn’t stop too many people from hiking where they could. This little girl was taking no chances and kept making sure her family was made aware of the puddles.

Sometimes one’s home life presents colorful photographic opportunities. This was supper 2 nights ago. I couldn’t resist.
