It’s so lovely to be back in contact with the world!
Today was a driving day. It occurs to me that I haven’t posted a photo of our new chariot, ‘the beast 2’ so here it is! This one’s a little smaller and only seats five people!!
We left our fabulous B&B and the lovely people we met there and are now ensconced in Mount Shasta. The weather’s a bit of a shock, at the moment it’s cooler and cloudy. We had some rain on the way here but only a cupful. We have come to the conclusion that we have probably seen the last of the very hot weather and plan on getting our jeans out tomorrow. Hey ho!
Northern California seems to be the home of fruit growing. We passed through miles and miles of fruit trees, nut trees and acres and acres of sunflowers. Then it turned mountainous and very green with lots of fir trees. I was taking photos as we travelled but this is about the best one, a view of Lake Shastina (not bad for being taken through the car window).
Tomorrow we explore the Mount Shasta area.
PS: For those taking an interest in Si’s eating habits, tonight he had a beef short rib ……….. he said it was fabulous. I should have taken a picture of the look of pleasure on his face!!!!
