Leaving Petaluma

Today is our last day in Petaluma. I have to say that this place is very nice when the sun shines. Last May was fairly dismal from a climate perspective. Thursday and Friday were just delightful. We were able to ride two days in a row. Here is Jim out in the boonies.

This morning, fog rolled up from San Fransisco and it was cold and windy. We went down to the Helen Putnam park and walked. We saw wild life. This is a black tail deer.

Don't you love that tree? I love that tree.

These are the rolling hills of Petaluma. When you ride, you get to experience the rolling hills close up.

By the time we got back to the car, the overcast had burned off and it was a beautiful warm day. That's the path our walk started out on, up the hill.

This guy was sitting on the fence near the truck. This is the third day in a row I've taken pictures of this species. This one sat still and presented a profile for me. I need more zoom.

Petaluma has been fun. We've enjoyed our time here. The weekend is in full swing at the park. There are children everywhere, the KOA people are hauling the kids around in the hay wagon, and they're burning wood like there is no tomorrow.
Tomorrow we're staying at a park out in the toolies near Coalinga. We've stayed there before and it's not terrible.


  1. I love that area, and it is a very nice place to spend some time in the late summer and early fall. I love the tree.
