|Welcome to Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, Jamestown, California|
The Big Guy has a new hobby - volunteering at Railtown! I have gone up there the past two weekends with him. Two weeks ago I went because I had been in Santa Barbara for three weeks and wanted to spend as much time as I could with him.
This past Saturday our grandson visited and The Big Guy wanted to take him up. It is a long day, starting with a drive of over an hour, then seven hours at the park.
We rode the first train at 11:00 a.m., went on the caboose tour, had lunch in the picnic area with The Big Guy and then ran out of stuff to do at the park. So grandson and I went into Jamestown and walked around. Neither of us likes to shop and as we passed the (it seemed like) the hundredth antique shop we looked at each other and asked who had thought this was a good idea? We stopped at a place for drinks (coffee and a smoothie) that had been owned by the same family for four generations and was the biggest antique store in town. I think the drinks business was keeping it afloat! The coffee was really good. They made each cup when it was ordered.
It was a long day. The last hour seemed as though it would never end.
We did finally say good-bye to Railtown.
