Wednesday April 8, 2020 Guerneville CA
First thing this morning, around noon, there was a knock at my door. It was my brother Tom asking if I had any eggs to sell as they seem to be in short supply in most of the world right now and the market called and said they were out of eggs. Hummm, yes I have about 12 dozen extra ones. He took the eggs and processed them for sale.
It’s interesting that eggs are in short supply. People must be eating more eggs these days than I thought, or something.
Swallows are back
When I went outside this morning I noticed the swallows were back. I knew one of my nesting boxes had fallen off it’s post during a storm last winter and it needed to be put back up so it can be used. I got the ladder out and a screwdriver and repaired it and put it back up.
Nest box fixed
It’s a rather old nest box but it still works and they are happy with it.
No get up and go
I wasn’t doing too good today because I’d overdone it yesterday and wore myself out too much. Something about older age I suppose.
Anyway I felt like a truck ran over me and didn’t have any get up and go so I did a lot of chair hopping for part of the day. The sun was out so that was nice at least.
Putt putt dirt bike ride
After doing that for most of the day I decided I was good enough to go for a putt, putt dirt bike ride up in the hills, just going along not too fast and taking it easy.
So I got the dirt bike out and rode it up to this spot where I looked around for a water spring, but didn’t go far. Being spring everything is nice and green.
After a short time there I jumped back on the bike and rode it to the ridge top for the view.
This is the town of Guerneville with a bit of fog from the ridge top.
After a short time there I continued on my ride going through here.
Ever Green Pass
A few miles later and I was here where I decided to stop to take some pictures of a place we played when we were kids, a long time ago.
Here’s the view from there, a place we used to call Ever Green Pass.
On that flat spot in the center is were we made a small shelter out of the small Christmas trees, fir trees to some. We’d hike up to it from our houses and eat lunch. I’m not sure we ever stayed up there?
I continued my ride on this road.
Pig Wallow Spring
And stopped at this spring I call Pig Wallow Spring. I needed to check it out. It seems to be plugging up for some reason so I will need to dig it out and redo it eventually.
This is how much water comes out of it when it’s working as it should.
Lots of ferns and sorrel in this area.
Ferns and sorrel.
From there I headed on this road towards home.
I stopped at my brother’s strawberry patch to see how it was coming along, the berries I mean. No berries but there were lots of blooms.
I rode on home and put the bike away and sat down and did some chair hopping for the rest of the day.
I was feeling much better after the bike ride but still took it easy and rested up.
Nice sunny day.
