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.

Cool In The City

This week promises to be very hot and muggy. For kids, and adults too, there’s a place in the Harvard campus area that provides the perfect escape. It’s a cute little fountain setup that consists of a bunch of boulders and lots of short little fountains spraying a cooling mist over the area. It’s the perfect spot to take your hot cranky kid(s).

We’re walking to town yesterday and I’ve a letter in my pocket to mail. We come to the main post office which is huge, clean and well lit. I go in to drop the letter off and can’t find the damn mail slot. I go outside to tell Sarah I’m stumped. She walks in, goes directly to the drop off point and mails the letter……So endeth the lesson.
