We've been enjoying our local open space - Las Flores Ranch. Eventually, the city of Santa Maria plans to turn a portion of it into a new landfill. Meanwhile, we're enjoying the serenity and beauty of the place. The raptors and oaks are fabulous there. Our horse enjoys her portion of the picnics as well as anyone in the family. And the girls are doing really well on horseback.
Recently, E's 4H horse group gathered for a trail ride at Las Flores. Mr. B, V and I enjoyed a nice family hike while E rode up the trail with her horsey peers. They had their own adventure before making it to the picnic area where we crossed paths on our way back to the truck. Another beautiful winter family day on the Central Coast.
