Breakfast – deluxe and delicious – even liked the plates so much that I switched to get the one I wanted (tulip motif). This is only a part of what was on offering: bless you P and J!
Then it was a short walk along the paved trail surrounding the gated community with views from everywhere (ok didn’t intend that pun either, but the truth is the truth – 360° of countryside) before starting off on our second day’s journey: we did go to the park at the bottom of the hill also as I had seen a pair of geese and their babies the day before as we were arriving and desperately wanted a picture.

Then it was a leisurely short drive to our next destination – Auburn, California where we were spending the night with very dear friends from my deceased little sister’s life. Auburn has the merit, in addition to D&K, of having an Old Town – one, which we were able to explore before heading to dinner with their daughter S and her daughter C. S taught at the same school where our little sister spent so many years and the whole family were – and still are – a tower of strength to ours.
