Back Home Again

Adele and I have been on the road for our longest trip since the pandemic.

We were away for eight days. Here's our highlights:

We left West Sacramento and stopped mid-day at the Forestiere Underground Gardens in Fresno — a century old farm that was built underground because the top soil was not fertile. As a bonus, citrus crops did well by being in a cooler location during the hot dry summers.

For the evening, we stayed in Visalia. The next morning, we headed to Bakersfield to visit the California Living Museum — an interesting zoo.



We finally made it to Ventura where we joined up with the Road Scholar program on the Channel Islands — see elsewhere in this issue. We visited Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands in the National Park system.

We left Ventura and stopped at the Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo Beach, and stayed that evening in Monterey. Had an amazing desert at the Sur at the Barnyard restaurant — a bon-bon encased in dry ice — pretty cool.

From there, we stopped at our daughter's home, test drove an electric bicycle and headed home.

Back home again — a long day's journey.
