Our little family decided to escape the home front and traverse the beautiful California Delta. It was a little strange since this was the first time we were a family of three and not four. Sniff sniff.....my son and his family will be starting their own traditions. I missed him. Sophie really missed her big bro. To quote Bowie: Ch-ch-ch-changes..........
Here we are in our fair state's Capital, Sacramento
It was Gold Rush Days in Old Town
We got some learnin' in
Saw the Calvary preparing for their day
time to break camp
and protect the citizens
then we walked down the dusty streets
Worked up a mighty powerful thirst, so I pumped some water
looked at some dollies
Met Black Bart, the gentleman criminal.
Factoid: he only robbed Wells Fargo because he felt they did him wrong.
He never fired a shot or harmed a clerk.
Jammed with the band
Delivered some mail
witnessed a shoot out
Saw the fire department in action
Saving some local 'working girls'
A grateful public
Next, we found the Chalk it up Festival
then we found Nemo
Watched some artists work
Time to say goodbye and follow the mighty Sacramento toward home
Cross a draw bridge
Or two (or six)
Then we took a wrong turn and ended up in..........
Te hee hee I couldn't resist. Rio Vista is just over the river from us and I HAD to take a pic just like the phone commercial.
It was a pretty great day.
