It was only about four years ago that I first visited the California State Railroad Museum. It really is a great place to explore, and after watching this episode of California’s Golden Parks, I think I’m about due for another visit. It’s clear from Huell’s conversations with the docents that they truly love working in the museum, sharing their knowledge […]
The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Summer Scenes.
This week’s slides are a somewhat hodge-podge collection from late 1971 and early 1972, all stamped with the same processing date of June 1972. I don’t know the dates they were actually shot, but I’ve mostly tried to arrange them in order according to the small numbers printed on the slide frames. I have no idea what my gift was […]

Even though I’ve passed through both Bodega and Bodega Bay many times, Huell’s visit to these two small Sonoma County towns in 2002 highlights the people who live and work there and who make the communities something special. Join Huell as he travels to the village of Bodega Bay, located just 68 miles north of San Francisco. The sights are […]
Spring/Summer 1962 — My last few slides from the 1960s cover our family trip to the northern coast of California, specifically Patrick’s Point State Park. Even though I can’t really remember the details of this visit, I do have a warmly nostalgic feeling about Patrick’s Point and a burning desire to revisit and hike the same trails. I originally posted […]
