|Not bad RV parking, eh?|
|Pastoral golden foothills|
Our friends of back in the Half Moon Bay days, Don and Joan, live out in the country near Ione, CA, in the Sierra Foothills. They have 5 beautiful oak studded, horse grazing acres that nicely accommodate Don's passion for saving everything old and Joan's for collecting rocks...mostly agates they gather from the beaches in Oregon during their summer travels. Our RV parking site isn't bad either!
|Collection of glass insulators|
|Agates & other precious rocks make for a nice birdhouse...|
|Love these clouds|
|Is this a geode??|
|Just over the fence these alpacas pose|
|And a prickly pear blossom harbors a pollen-covered bee!|
If we head south about 30 miles on Highway 101 we encounter a whole new scene! Another landscape unfolds as we cross the Golden Gate Bridge, which by the way, no longer collects tolls at the booth but videos your license plate number and bills you according to registration info...smile for Big Brother, though it does save a lot of time!
|The famous GG Bridge looms large...|
|The Ferry Building, my favorite place|
|At Fisherman's Wharf|

|Lunch at the Waterfront Restaurant with a Bay Bridge view!|
