I remember making home-made ice cream with the family. The salt rock,cream and all the fixings. I loved when my grandparents would visit us on the farm. We had dinner in the kitchen around a generous sized picnic table and benches. Our living room was huge-we had a slate pool table in the center of the room. friends would come over for saturday afternoon  pool tournaments. My parents hosted opening day hunting season at our house. We could have up to 50 people show up for hunting. Mom made chili and hot dogs to feed so many at once.

I treasure Kern Ville, the many weekend visits with my cousins. We had our own (secret) everyone knew about swimming hole. I never could figure this one out; we brought our camper, but slept in the converted garage. we all lived for whiskey Flat days. The town has not changed since the 1960’s when my family visited. Family came for turkey hunting and quail hunting season. I am from a long line of hunters and fisherman. Now the relitives call my mom and reminisce about the good old days of opening day of hunting and weekend visits Kernville.

I hope you are snapping up every precious moment of summer to be a tourist in your town. so many festivals left to see,summer concerts in the park,farmer’s markets,lake cruises, hiking,biking,library visits. So much to do with the kids. I always take a few minutes everyday to enjoy the beauty around me. I love to see beautiful garden yards and all the love and work put into them. I love to see families going for the after dinner bike ride together or walking the dog down to the bay to swim. I need to get down town more often and enjoy First friday, walk the boardwalk with friends, catch a summer play, drive around some historic homes in my area.  I love that I live in a area that has all four seasons.
