While the last two days were spent with friends from our old old house club, today was spent with friends from out new old house club. We visited two cabins in Bear Valley that are owned by members of the Splinter Group. It seems funny that a Ferndaler would need a remote cabin, but Bear Valley does usually provide a welcome respite from the colder climate of Ferndale. This weekend so far has seen beautiful weather, even in Ferndale, so we didn’t gain much there. But still it was nice to escape the bustle and hustle of Ferndale, and just sit under the shade of big trees and admire the scenery. The cabin in the picture is barely large enough to hold a bed, and a small kitchen. In between touring the two cabins, we also were invited to tour a neighbor’s beautiful garden. Seeing some of the plants that were in my old garden again made me think of how much I really enjoyed my little garden in San Jose. To bad you can’t just pick up and move an entire backyard.
