Last week Bret took a day off for an outing. He's been wanting to go up to the foothills for a while, and it seemed the perfect time with all this nice spring weather. And extra nice during the week when the traffic and peoples are at a minimum.
This is the actual creek. When I told Frankie about going she remembered seeing snakes and frogs in the creek, we would stand on that bridge there and look down at the water passing. Sometimes we'd bring a picnic and up the other direction there were places to sit and watch the water go by.
First stop Water Street Antiques
. It's a fun place to look even if you don't find anything. We haven't been in ages, and now they've got a warehouse full of new things as well.
Sutter Creek is a beautiful town. The old historic area has a lot of lovely old houses. Many people were out working in their yards or there would be way more pictures of darling houses to share.
After Sutter Creek we headed over to Amador City, a few miles down Highway 49. There is a little shop there, Country Living, that is completely darling. Been there for THIRTY THREE YEARS! This is Sandy the owner. Super sweet, she let me take some photos. I was so happy to see it.. I've shopped there many a time.
Here's Bret enjoying his lunch of fancy pizza at the little bakery in Amador City. I had a cup of coffee and a piece of walnut shortbread. Lunch of champions.
We took a leisurely drive from there through frog jump
country, stopping in Angel's Camp and Murphy's. On the way out of town we saw this sign, and it really really really cracked me up.
Have a super day peoples. xo
