Northern California – Trip to Tehama Angus Ranch (June 2014)

This June the Avrit side of the family had a family reunion, and we were lucky enough to be able to join… I had been dying for another California visit so, needless to say, I was so thankful we could go.

First stop, Sonoma, CA to visit Grandma & Grandpa. DSC_0698 2 DSC_0702 3 They have a loaded garden. Watermelon, corn, lemons & oranges. Grandma makes to die for jellies, curds and jams… DSC_0722 17 Next stop, Fenton’s. If you’ve seen Up, you’ve seen Fenton’s, you just might not have known it. 🙂 DSC_0737 29 and no, i did NOT eat that entire ice-cream.

(I’ve been eating better, working out regularly… and man, seeing this really makes me see the difference.)

So, once we got to the ranch and parked, we were walking towards the house and we got buzzed by a little plane! It was Jonathan’s uncle, just having some fun. I think we could see him laughing at our faces from the ground.

Within the next 20 minutes, Jonathan was up there flying around.

This is their take off.

I didn’t feel brave enough to go flying until the next day and his cousin took me up, and I cannot describe how amazing it is to see the world like that. Probably as close as you can get to being a bird, without parachuting or hang glinding.

Jonathan’s aunt was determined to get me to try all sorts fruit this week, and I ended up loving all of it! I was even eating blackberries with milk and sugar. SO good.

Nothing i’ve seen this far in my life is as pretty as Northern California. Especially the fruit.
