Last Wednesday, I decided to take a break from my regular routine of Yoga, Therapy & T'ai Chi, and instead, Alan and I took a long ride to Sacramento, to photograph the holiday decorations at the Governor's Mansion, and in Old Sacramento. It was beautiful there. Cold, but beautiful. It was also a bit damp, and a tad foggy, which is not unexpected for this time of year. With it being the day before Thanksgiving, it wasn't as crowded as it might have been otherwise, which was nice for taking pictures. :)
Lovely Gold Rush era buildings, and wooden streets
A small riverboat, bringing in a supply of Christmas Trees.
Tower Bridge over the Sacramento River.
Choo-Choo trains can be seen at the Railroad Museum.
Workers placing the capitol Christmas tree...
And putting the last holiday touches on the Governor's Mansion.
A gorgeous sunset on the way home. :)
Alan and I have such a good time on this type of day trip. We didn't over plan, and didn't plan to be home at any certain time. It was just a ride to Sacramento to see what we could happen upon. We had a couple of spots in mind, like the Governor's Mansion, but other then that, we just let the day happen. It was a pretty nice way to spend the day before Thanksgiving. :)
I am now off to make some Turkey Enchiladas, tell me, are you still eating Turkey also? What's your favorite way to serve your turkey leftovers?
