On the way to Santa Nella, we passed a small herd of Brahman cows and calves. I've never seen baby Brahmans before and of course the camera was out of sight. We stopped on the way back but by this time most of the herd had relocated and the babies were in a far corner curled up on the ground. However there was one pretty lady by the road and she posed very nicely. I am impressed with how pretty the females are. They are very different from the Gurneys and Jerseys around here.
Years ago I had noticed this barn whenever we passed this way to Hwy. 5. I always promised myself I would find this barn again and take pictures. Well, the day finally arrived. The barn seemed much brighter than before. The farmer was out working and told me they had painted it a few years ago to brighten it up. I don't think I'm the first person to take pictures of his barn since he didn't seem very surprised to see me clicking away.
Linda and her son David and I arrived home and settled on lunch at Bistro 234. Bistro is one of those place the reeks of atmosphere, serves good food, and in the end always disappoints me. I'm not picky but for me it is all in the details. I don't like it when the bill comes and I'm surprised by extra and unexpected charges. I also don't like it when all I get is an apology and a gee I'm sorry you didn't understand. I!!!! didn't understand? Hard to understand when the details of the extras aren't explained and no one else at the table heard them either. I had told Linda that Don and I had been there a couple of times and I always left feeling vaguely disappointed considering the dent the place always leaves in my pocketbook. Well, after a two year break, I've been reminded again that there is a reason I don't go here very often.
But even aside from the Bistro disappointment, I had a memorable day. I had a happy day. Brahman babies, Pepsi barns, clear crisp weather. What more could a girl ask for??
