I went on a road trip to San Diego last weekend to visit my aunt and uncle overnight. Along the way, I drove by the horse ranch that my parents owned in the 1960's. They never allowed me to have a horse, but owned the ranch for a period of years. It was their weekend getaway from the stress of working in downtown Los Angeles! The barn roof was old and falling apart, so my dad decided to put a new aluminum roof on it! I remember him wrapping a rope around his waist as he sat on top of it, nailing in the sheets of aluminum! I don't remember HOW he did the sides. Anyway, I've driven by the ranch for 30 years and watched it progress to the beautiful equestrian center, Quail Hollow Farm, that it is today. The current owners have owned it for the last 5 years and they have restored it and improved it to the beautiful ranch that it deserves to be! There are new trees and flowers and the ranch is ALIVE with horses! Back in the 60's, it was the only ranch for a long spell on that road. Now the road has been subdivided and there are houses and ranches all along it. I LOVE driving by the ranch. The fog rolls in, and there are many birds in the canyon. I drove up into the ranch Saturday afternoon and there were many cars and people there! I wandered around with my camera around my neck and the owner came by and took me for a tour. Lindy was very friendly and pleasant! So, enjoy my trip down "memory lane".
