Our two-and-a-half week stay at the Pleasanton fairgrounds flew by. With all kinds of appointments to tend to, we were pretty much always on the run. We did manage to make time to see a few friends and have a little fun. (Although we sure didn't take many pictures!) We had a great time catching up with friends Cindy and Rick. We spent an afternoon introducing them to geocaching. Here they are at their first find, a virtual cache not far from the fairgrounds. (The sculpture is part of the cache, so I was trying - without much success - to include that in the photo.)
On Mother's Day, we joined long time friends Jean and Kevin for an early morning hike near Mt. Diablo. The highlight of the trek was this amazing rainbow.
Along the trail I just had to snap these California poppies! After all, you just have to stop and smell the flowers, right?
We didn't get to see everyone or do everything we had hoped while we were here. So, I guess we'll just have to come back! Of course, our friends can always meet us on the road somewhere. Y'all are always welcome!
