All Aboard !


  











These photos were taken on a stroll along the Central Pacific Train Depot in Old Sacramento, California. If your a lover of trains and history our California State Railroad Museum is definitely worth a visit. May your excursions this weekend take you to marvelous places.

Pioneer Square

Across the street from the California State Railroad Museum and down a few stairs from the main street level you will land in quaint  Pioneer Square.  Old Sacramento's city was originally at this sub level but due to flooding in the 1850's  the city was rebuilt and raised above river levels. There is still a whole secret underground city that can be toured.


 El Maya caught our attention with it's flourish of color and ethnic delights. We also had a choice to have mini donuts or frozen yogurt from the other shops in the square, and fro yo won. This little square was also perfect for snapping a few photos.

Mother's Day pic with my babies, two of which are taller than me already, but 5 foot is easy to pass up quickly. This week I will be sharing our photo's from around "Old Sac".

Photo Friday - A Life's Ride


A Life's Ride Sculptor Memorial Bench in West Sacramento

Mother's Day was spent exploring our own historic Downtown which is known as "Old Sac" to locals. Across the Tower Bridge towards Raley Field is "The River Walk". A ball game was just getting started in the distance as the kids ran to the giant bicycle sculptor to rest  a little from our walk and exploration of our historic city.

The First Photo Friday

Hello all you beautiful people from around the globe. Even though it's gloomy, gray and raining over here in Cali, I'm in a chipper mood. If your just getting to know me, I love Friday's and photography. I tend to snap pictures randomly throughout the week and they sometimes just end up sitting in my photo gallery without making it to a blog post or shared on social media. An idea occurred to me to make a day to post pics with no other agenda but to share a moment or a few from my week on the homestead and beyond. I know some of you feel me on this one so.........let's share!



Participating is simple & fun. Post your "Photo Friday" on your blog,  then stop by here and leave your link to your post in the comments so others can enjoy your pics and moments from the week. If this thing catches on I will post a list of participants on my side bar. So without further ado here is my "Photo Friday" contribution.


Oh yes sparrows I am well aware that the feeder is empty. The robins, doves. and miscellaneous other feathered friends had feasted before they got here. Also my  Raven's tend to take flight off the top of the feeder and knock seeds to the ground. When I take a pause outside throughout my day I sit quietly and watch their bird dramas unfold, and have my camera ready.
