The day dawned with beautiful sunshine. No foggy June gloom at all.
On our agenda today was a drive from Paso Robles to Santa Cruz to visit my sister and her kids. About 120 miles, according to Yahoo Maps. We drove thru Castroville, the self-proclaimed Artichoke Center of the World. Beautiful farm country with lots of workers out in the fields picking various crops.
After visiting for a little while, we headed over to my niece Kathleen's house for a BBQ with her family, my other niece Patti and her family and my nephew Brian. Lots of good food and fun catching up.
Here's my sister JoAnne, her younger daughter Patti, and new "favorite child" Bindi:
