A DAY AT THE ZOO WITH GRANDCHILDREN

Watching the animals at the zoo; we started to see patterns of behavior. The mothers watching over their babies and teaching them skills for life; while we watched how an older child handles an ice cream cone in the heat of Los Angeles.

LUTHER BURBANK’S EXPERIMENTAL FARM

Yesterday started with a guided visit at Luther Burbank’s Experimental Farm in Sebastopol. Originally 16 acres where he bred many of the varieties of plants for which is famous. There are still perhaps 6 varieties of roses he created.

From there we went to Point Reyes, a national park, a peninsula with a lighthouse at the point.
