Sunday drive....

Today we took a drive to just enjoy the day. We drove up the 210 Fwy to Hwy 126. Have you even taken that Highway? It is a really beautiful drive. A lot of the produce in California is grown in this region. It was so nice to enjoy the green all over. I sure do appreciate the simpler more peaceful life they live. We stopped in Fillmore where they have a cool train that goes from there to Santa Paula. They even have a train museum. My grandson would just love to ride this train. Maybe when he comes to visit sometime we can take him.

This is a lot of what you see on the drive.

We continued down the road to Ventura where it was very cool and breezy. The temps were in the high 60's. 
The we headed to the Oxnard Farmers Market and got some fresh produce. 
Then we headed down Hwy 1 all the way through Malibu to Santa Monica. My goodness I think everyone in Southern California went to the beach today. I didn't have my camera to take a picture but this pretty much shows what the beach looked like. Even with temps in the 60's it was very crowded. Lucky we were going south because the traffic northbound wasn't moving. 

Finally we got onto the 10 Fwy and headed home, back to where it was closer to 100 degrees, and that was at 3:00PM. We had a Tri Tip steak marinating in the frig waiting for us. So after a long day of sightseeing it was nice to come home and relax, have a glass of wine and enjoy home sweet home. While the steak was cooking I snapped a few pictures of the prettiness in the backyard. My plants are in full bloom and really looking beautiful. 

And then there is that beautiful peach tree of my neighbors. A lot of the branches are hanging over our fence. I've heard that anything on your property is yours for the taking. 

Here is just one small bunch of peaches hanging over the fence. Beautiful! Peach cobbler anyone??

Aren't they pretty.....
