Hi.  Well we made it out here O.K.  It was wonderfull to fly.  Hope you have your baby by now.  I got a bad cold.  See you all soon.  Love, Gran and Gramp.


Pot-bellied stove and hanging chandeliers set the mood of Upjohn's old-fashioned drugstore in Disneyland.  Store is replica of an estabishment of the 1880's.



Loved every minute of this.  Will start for Texas Monday by Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns.  Love, Hattie


STRAWBERRY PICKIN' TIME
These choice and luscious berries excel in the warm coastal climate and sandy loam soil of the area.  Many hundreds of acres are in production along the Calif. coast at Oceano, Grover City, Arroyo Grande and Santa Maria



YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, CALIFORNIA
WAWONA TREE
This well-known tree stands in the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees.  The tunnel through its was cut in 1881.  The size of the tree is apparent from comparison with the automobile.

ITALIAN SWISS COLONY VINEYARD SCENE AT ASTI, SONOMA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
Way back in 1881 a hardy group of immigrant families from the famous wine-growing regions of Northern Italy and Switzerland established their famous colony at Asti.  Cuttings of the choicest European vines were brought over, and planted.  Asti proved the ideal location for their winery because within a short eleven years its wines, entered in international competition, had won gold medals for excellence.



Hi!  Just starting out on a 2 week camping trip to Vancouver.  Wow have we been looking forward to it!  Stopped for a little wine at lunch -- are you coming out this way?  Look to hear from you - see how ya doing.  love from both of us, Jani & Foxie
