This weekend, my brother Greg and my sister in law Connie joined us in Felton to celebrate my birthday by riding a steam train.
We rode 30 minutes up to Bear Mountain which we learned has the steepest grade in northern America.
The sun was shining through the majestic redwood forest.
We heard bands playing in the background during the Sol Festival celebrating the first day of Fall.
Afterwards, we ate at a local bbq restaurant. The flavors made our mouths water.
Then, we returned to Mount Hermon to grab an expresso and ice cream. Simply delightful.
Once Greg and Connie headed home to the north bay, we jumped in the car and attended the Saturday night service at Twin Lakes church. We studied Galatians 5:22 The Fruit of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The one take away I learned is to avoid a killjoy of negative thoughts, because they affect your mood.
As we rode through the redwoods, I thought to myself, This is good old fashion fun. Just hanging out with family on a beautiful day enjoying nature. I love it!
