Postcards from Sebastopol

Despite serious drought conditions, we endured several consecutive days of damp, drizzly, chilly, gray weather that kept me off two wheels. Not enough precipitation to make a dent in our enormous rain deficit, but enough to make pedaling seem unappealing.

    Lots of great color in all those photos. It sounds like it was a perfect riding day.

    Those postcards are quite a change of scene from the barren brown fields here!

    For some reason, Sebastopol sounds like it should be in Russia. Maybe just up the road from Sevastopol on the Crimean Peninsula.

      Well, Sebastopol is only a few miles away from the Russian River. I’m not sure how far to the waterway made famous by Joe Cocker, the Crimea River…. 😉

      My best friend from uni that’s joined me for a week on my long US tours is from Sebastopol. Her dad still lives there. They had a nice property out between town and the ocean that her dad built. They certainly didn’t have any Russian connections though!

    Very nice kodachrome postcard pics – looks like you made the most of the sun after the grey weather 🙂
