Sunny Sundays in the Sierras

 So, what do you do on Sundays in your neck of the woods? Here in the Sierra foothills we taste wines with friends, enjoy our fabulous restaurants and shops, stroll our historic gold rush era towns or partake of any number of hikes and outdoor activities.  Sharing a few glimpses from my sunny (yea!) meandering travels for Sundays in my City.

I’d promised (here and here) to continue to post the frogs that adorn Calaveras County in honor of Mark Twain’s “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County“. Here’s Angel’s Camp fire department.


While out at Ironstone Vineyards capturing shots of daffodil varieties, I also caught a few of the grounds and gardens. We’re having a blessedly sunny crisp and clear weekend – so perfect for wandering their manicured paths.

Planning your weekends away? Sunday, May 22 is our Calaveras Country Fair & Frog Jumps (you can enter with a locally captured – and at the end of day released – supplied frog). If you like dressing up –  don Victorian costumes and join Columbia’s Easter parade and if you’ve never seen a Fireman’s Muster – well, it’s a fun event of contests and activities not to be missed. I’ll see if I can find a date for Murphys, Columbia’s is April 30th and May 1st. I’d never seen one before moving out here and they are totally a kick! If you’ve not seen one, scroll down the page here to see some great photos. Of course, for any of these, stay in Murphys to enjoy the best restaurants and accommodations.

Be sure to check out Sundays in my City  and see what others around the globe do in their neck of the woods on their day off. This post is also participating in the parties linked below.
