BUT! We did it and are thrilled to be renting a condo in beautiful Avila Beach nearer our children & grandchildren. It took 10 people ( including the 4 outside of camera range) to sign the sale papers on our home.
The semi loaded with our earthly goods arrived at Ryan's Ranch on the morning of September 19th to sort what what was being moved to our Avila Beach Condo and what was to be stored in Ryan's barn. To our amazement, this California black bear showed up on scene.

The guests had fun creating artwork and at Abby's request for a Vincent Van Gogh, Leanne created this beautiful recreation of "Starry Starry Night"
The following weekend brought a visit from Nathan, Megan and boys. Here we are at Avila Farms where we took a hay ride to the Apple Orchard.
