The Perfect Day

After five years of drought, rain finally blessed the Santa Ynez Valley.  Long dormant fields burst overnight with green grasses.  Wild flowers soon followed.  And the land was happy.  Dovecote Ranch, our little piece of heaven, beckoned us to come out and play.

Play we did.  An oak shaded picnic, a dog taking a swim in the pond, a little BB gun target practice, a little fishing, and a lot of getting dirty.  While the kids fished, I cruised around the ranch to snap a few photos.  All of the scenic photos here were taken from the view atop my ATV.

I still can’t believe we live here.
