The Real Deal

Standard

Last weekend it snowed in the Sierra.  It was a beautiful sight.  It was nearly all gone the following day so I’m glad that we stopped on a bridge to snap this photo.

The river was completely still, and as I looked a little closer there were two geese standing in the river.  They are the real deal, not at all like the ones on the roof at MacArthur Place.

A favorite sight for me is the fresh snow piled on the bare branches.

While on our journey, we came across a red barn.  You hardly notice it when there is no snow but it stands out with the white landscape around it.

A favorite barn on the road to the cabin.  We are sure that it won’t be standing for long.

I hope you were able to get a feel for the Sierra Snow, we haven’t seen much of it this year.  I’m hoping for more……

Come a Little Closer

Standard

Last weekend I turned and took a look down a quiet pathway at MacArthur Place in Sonoma.  It looked so peaceful.

As I proceeded down the path, I found the light to be growing about me.

As I came closer, I could see the geese on the roof.

You see, they’re not real, and I knew they would be there.  They looked so delightful in the sun.  I couldn’t resist taking a photo of them.  

The lady that created MacArthur Place put objects of whimsy all about the property.  If you ever venture out to Sonoma, it is a magical place to wander through.
