I’m a little late in joining in for Outdoor Wednesday this week hosted by Susan at A Southern Day Dreamer but better late than never.
To market, to market to buy a fat pig;
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog;
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.
Dear and I decided to walk to the Farmer’s Market that our hometown has every Saturday in Old Town Camarillo from 8:00 to Noon. As we set out we passed these tumbleweeds that are taking over the sidewalk. What a fun sight to see tumbleweeds tumbling through town when they dry up and the wind blows. Brings back some childhood memories for me.
It was a drizzly morning. The drizzle does not deter Dear and I from walking because of our years in the Seattle area. We do everything in the rain up there and most of the time without an umbrella!
A rare thing to see raindrops on the vegetation in Southern California.
Our walk to the Market is convoluted because we are separated from the main part of town by the railroad tracks that run up the coast of California. We have to jog and go over an overpass built for people to get to the train station. Here’s Dear sporting his new Tilley hat!
See the church across the freeway? That’s where we are headed.
We make it to Ventura Blvd. which is the main street through Old Town Camarillo.
Great timing as we approach the market.
We’re hoping to find some red and white flowers for the dinner we’re having for my brother’s birthday later on this day.
Success! On the way back I had to snap these shots of St. Mary Magdalen Church. A landmark in Camarillo which was built by the Camarillo Family.
The sun is getting brighter as we approach home. The Santa Monica Mountains are camaflouged today by these great clouds.
Just enough sun for Dear to spot this great spider web on the tumbleweed we pass on the way home!
For more Outdoor shots visit Susan at A Southern Day Dreamer!
Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.
