Rain Rain Go Away

More rain for us out here, 9.5 inches since Friday!  We're in the middle of some storm!  The governor has finally declared a state of emergency for our county.

Having three boys, we were going a little stir crazy, so we went out to check on the grandparents' home in Avila Beach as they're away visiting cousins in New Mexico.  Here are a few shots from that visit.

After checking on the house to make sure everything was okay, we took a quick swim in the community pool.  From the log book, it looked like no one had been to the pool in two days.

(Tim and Jonathan about to receive a surprise cannonball from their father)

We stayed until it started raining again, but before we got back to the house it hailed on us!  That's just a step away from snow!  So we took a quick trip down to the beach to check out the surf.

Along the way we caught a pretty nifty rainbow.

(Tim and Andrew above Avila Beach)

(Double rainbow over the yacht club)

Along the beach we encountered a sight I've never seen, thousands of washed up apples!


(Impromptu Christmas tree with apple decorations)

(Jonathan with his drift-gourd collection)

So we drove up the road to figure out where all the produce came from.  We eventually found the aptly named Creekside Farms.

What a shame, all those wasted apples and gourds.
I don't imagine they would be safe to eat

Your pictures tell quite a story - much more so than a dry TV newscast. So interesting/sad about the apple orchard. Thanks for sharing.
