Out and About

I slept better last night than I did the first night. Hiker woke me up around 5:15 am and I kept telling her she had to wait a while and to go back to sleep. Then she woke me up again at 5:30 am. Once again I told her to go back to bed. She kept bugging me so finally at 5:45 am, I got up and fed her and let her go outside. When she came back in, she went back to bed and so did I until around 6:30 am when my brother Ron got up.

We went and picked up my nephew Jared and we went over to a café called Kalico Kitchen. I remember my mom used to love going there for breakfast when she and I used to visit Ron back in the 1980’ and 1990’s.

We left the café and came back to pick up Hiker and we headed down to see if we could see the Sutter Buttes up close. We’ve always seen them from up here in Paradise, way off in the distance. I looked them up online and it said they were a “state park” so off we went to check them out. I printed out a Google map but when we got to where it told us to go, there was no sign of a “state park”. No gate, no entrance…nothing. So we turned around and headed back up to Paradise.

We dropped Hiker off at the apartment and then went to lunch and then took Jared back to his home.

It started getting very cloudy this afternoon as a storm is supposed to be heading this way, but Keith and I are afraid we are going to be heading home before it gets here and we won’t be able to see the rain. We have not seen “real rain” for so long down in SoCal, we were really hoping to have at least one day of rain here.
Tomorrow, Hiker, me, Keith and Ron are heading down to Chico. Planning on checking out the Honey Run Covered Bridge in Butte Creek Canyon and then going to a park in Chico to walk Hiker around.

  1. Sounds like a GREAT trip so far. At least Hiker went back to sleep this morning. Wonderful pics.
