Fun in the Sun

Spider stories aside, here are the pictures from our trip to California. Above is Storyland, Fresno. It's been there since I was a kid and it shows......but it was a fun little adventure.

Pirate ship, which was in pretty good shape still.

Knight's castle. (I guess we don't have any pics of the outside.)

Train ride.

Morro Bay.

We went to feed the seals. CANNOT go to Morro Bay without feeding seals. This one is getting ready to jump.

Me, probably eating salt water taffy.

They give you little packets of chopped up raw fish to throw to the seals. So fun!

Avila Beach.

This is at the Mooney Grove museum and pioneer village in Visalia. They have an indoor museum and then a pioneer village in back of the museum. There are lots of original old buildings, like this old farmhouse. (Did they want to have a bald mannequin head in the second story window looking out? Probably not very historically accurate, but I thought it added a creepy vibe to the old house).

Notice the door up on the second floor. Can you figure out why there would be a door there?

There's a man-made pond in the center of the park, with turtles, frogs and ducks.

I guess one of the old oak trees fell over and destroyed one of the park structures. It's an old park! We had a good time especially swimming at Grandma's house - though we have no pictures of that.
