Rainy day walk that stayed dry

D and The mag near citrus orchard - 1

shadowy at Stevens Creek - 1The morning weather forecast for the mid-Peninsula was showers off and on all day. So the Adventurers bundled up in rain gear and headed a bit south to Cupertino where D had spied a couple of trails around McClellan Ranch and Linda Vista park.

The former used to be a horse ranch owned by the McClellan family in the 1930s, and still preserves the original ranch house, a working milk barn and livestock barn, and two historical structures moved from other sites. Lots of little kids were enjoying it as the walked by on the paved surface (no muddy trails to contend with).

They came upon an citrus orchard where D and The Mag poised for a photo (the shadowing having been taken earlier).

Linda Vista turned out to be no more than a 2/3rds of a mile loop. But it was nice to check them both out and they see grandkid possibilities in the future.

And the day stayed dry, at least until they got back to Menlo Park
