California Dreamin' - Day 6

May 3, 2019  38 miles.  Later start this morning gave time for a little local exploration.  Out at the edge of town, spotted this machine planting broccoli seedlings.   Eight ladies sitting on the back feeding the seedlings into a mechanism which put them in the ground.  The amazing thing was it planted 16 rows moving about as fast as you would normally walk.  



Oh, and being Friday, spotted a couple garage sales, Pat came out with this, just no accounting for some folks taste,,,,,



When  the official tour began, first stop was at a miniature horse ranch,,,,



And we did obey all the signs,,,,



One little baby out in the pasture, so-o-o-o sleepy,,,



On to Santa Ynez and the Carriage Museum,,,,,



After lunch, we took another one of those crowded Model T roads that they have down here,,,,



Which took us to Nojoqui Falls.  Now they had these signs,  kind of a CYA thing I think,  ignored by everyone.  Got to admit, it was a little bit of a mountain goat trail...



Falls were really pretty,,,,



Next stop was Mission Santa Ines.  






When we came out to the parking lot, came upon a "quince era" celebration, taking pictures of this young girl in this fabulous dress.   Her photog asked if she could use our cars as a backdrop.   Funny the things that cross paths with us.....




Anyway, tonight was the final banquet,  stuffed us to the gills.  There was a special award made to a good Samaritan observed under a car assisting with a muffler,,,,,  Call Barbara for mobile repairs!!!



There were door prizes, our gang won some,,,



And finally, a picture of all the attendees from Santa Clara Valley Model T Ford Club.




The end.        Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.
