A bit early for *AW*...but today works for me....so hope you don't mind! Last week, I went to the *Mysterious East Bay* (so-called because I rarely venture in that direction)....to visit my friend Carol (who was Dog-Sitting her daughter's wonderful Bulldog - Capone)!
|He may look *Tough*....but he is a real sweet♥!|
Carol's Daughter lives next to Blake Gardens... a gorgeous estate that once housed the Chancellor of UC Berkeley.... here's the view from Capone's Backyard..
If you *embiggen*...you can see the Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.....not really too far away..
We HAD to stroll around Blake Gardens...
The pool is filled with many large Koi ....
And some interesting figures can be seen...
I particularly liked this very old-world, Forest Deity one......
Suki, any clue as to who she is?
Ok..time to visit the *Little Farm*, located in Tilden Park....this is where the *City-Folk* come to interact with *Farm Critters*!
|Just chewin' my cud, enjoying the Sunshine!|
|Fun to see a *Farm Goose* as opposed to the Canada Geese over in SF. Very well-fed, don't you think?|
|Hens, Roosters - oh my! Cris in Oregon - this is your future - a-ha-ha!|
|Look at those sweet paws!|
|Hello - do you have any lettuce or carrots for me? Of course, we did!|
|Mr. *Aries* - look at those beautiful horns!|
My favourites though.....were...
Because it takes one to know one! They were just adorable!
We all had a great day..... but *someone* was pretty tired after all the *exploring*.
|Look closely at Capone's ears.....they have *Leopard-like* Spots on them! Too cute!|
HAW (one day early) everyone!
