Sitting around and weed watering
That’s what I did this morning just taking it easy in the yard enjoying the nice day.
Around 2 I jumped on the dirt bike and headed up into the forest headed to some of my neighbors that live up on the hilltops west of me.
On the way I stopped here to get this wind blown dead tree off the road.
A little bit further I ran into this mess of trees on the road. Too heavy for me to move but I remember my brother Barry and I rode around the end of this on the hill side, just barely making it.
Wild morning glories
I was surprised to run into these wild morning glories just before I got to my neighbor’s gate.
Lots of wild white morning glories along this part of the road.
I kept going up the road and went through their gate. Well actually, there is a hole in the fence by the gate they leave open for neighbors to get through.
This was the view to the west as I entered the neighbors property. Over the last hills as far as you can is is the Pacific ocean, not far as the crow flies.
Our family property is on that highest hill and to the left of it and the town of Guerneville is just over the top of it and in the valley beyond.
I continued riding up the road.
And down this road to their house which is in those trees up ahead.
Dogs greet me
The gate was closed when I got there and the dogs came to the gate barking away. I yelled I was there but the dogs where making so much noise I didn’t think anyone could hear me. But eventually I heard Rob say the dogs were harmless, but one of them I wasn’t sure of.
I opened the gate and went on in and the dogs where mostly friendly, just doing their job.
I visited with Rob and Laura for most of the afternoon, shooting the bull. Rob was interested in how I tap water springs so I’ll likely be helping him with that in the future and Laura is real interested in the history of this area, especially the state park where she used to work.
Eventually I had to leave as they had to get back to work doing some house cleaning getting ready for an Easter party they were having.
Dirt bike ride in the forest
It was such a nice day out I went for a ride in the forest on the way home going by the Guerneville overlook.
This is the view of the little town of Guerneville which the river flows by sometimes flooding the town.
Spring water check
On the way down the hill I stopped at our main spring to check the water flow. Two gallons a minute which is pretty good. We have some other spring too connected into the system.
And I stopped the check the water level in our storage tanks which were full to the top so I was good to go to do lots more weed watering at home.
Back home it was nap time. And in the evening I did a lot of chair hopping around the yard moving water sprinklers around to water weeds and just sitting around enjoying the nice day.
At dark I went in the house.
Have you heard anything about the hermit?
