Fair Oaks Visit

I Know Where You Are!

Fair Oaks is a little town amid the suburbs of Sacramento.  It has incredible history and still has a “Main Street” with a lot of charm.

Will admit to being distracted by hunger today as I visited a popular vegetarian fast food (kinda slow–but well worth it!) eating place.  The normal 5 minute drive took quite a bit longer, as there was a rooster in the road and 3 cars had to wait for it to move.  (Yes, I am serious!)

There are quite a few varieties of chickens and roosters in this quant city/town.

After I enjoyed a wonderful Nutburger w/ avocado, then I set out to capture some of the noisier patrons.

Well, yes that is a fork. This is a fine eating establishment!

The food is wonderful and well worth the 20 minute wait!  Hikers, bikers, and strollers were parked everywhere waiting for the magic order-number to be called.  There are very few parking spots for cars!

Please note, this “curbside service” was outside the parking lot curb:)

Citified Rooster (Is that a word?)

Anyway, it is a pleasure to visit and I drove around to the town park and found a happy squirrel running among the numerous hens and roosters.  This one was clearly begging for a picture.  Well, maybe it was food–but I offered the picture!

Gott a Little Snack?

Highlight of my day, thought I’d share a bit with you!

  3. Laura-I love the dandified poultry! I can see those fancy roosters stopping traffic. Great shots.

    I think Doug contacted you to let you know that we’re definitely set to visit CA! I’m ready to start making the days off of the calendar even though it’s not until October. I hope that we get to meet up and shoot together. That would be a lot of fun.
