May 27; golf in Arbuckle. May 29, 2011. It was a nice Spring day so we decided to give the horses a dsy off and drive to Mt. Diablo. We went up the mountain on the West side and down on the NE side; then we drove on Morgan Creek road (a single lane road) on to complete a circumnavigation.
May 24, 2011. Dave and Linda take Ladybug on a "spur of the moment" road trip. After riding our horses we drove to Jackson and browsed the big used book store before having lunch at Mel and Fay's diner. Then we drove up the twisty Sheep Ranch Road all the way to Big Trees State Park. more
May 17,The Tour of California bike race was scheduled to go through Ione so we drove up to watch. We managed to get a nice spot under an awning (out of the rain) so we could watch as they rolled into town. Itwas so much fun that we decided to drive to Modesto to watch the finish - so we did!
