Pictures From My Day With Mason

We walked into town, just about 1/2 a mile.
Our first stop was the old firehouse that is in the process of being restored.

Auburn is known for it's gorgeous statues. This is just one of many on our walk.

We stopped for lunch at Burneys. If you're in Auburn, this is the best dog going!

Mason and I went to the wetlands preserve where we took quite a few pictures. You can see the beautiful Placer County Courthouse in the background.

Mason being my kid! What a ham.

Sitting by the creek which he eventually fell in!

This is one of my favorite things. Our clock tower was just repaired after being out of commission for years. It was struck by lightening. Yes, just like my favorite movie of all time, Back To The Future!

Auburn Drug is like a page out of a history book. It's exactly like you think it is...

all the way down to the working soda fountain inside! If you only visit one place in Auburn, and if it's not to see me, stop in and have a milkshake.

Auburn seems like a pretty cool place to live and take a walk in. I love the pictures, very interesting and colorful (can't wait until Rochester is that green again). Handsome young man there too! Nothing like northern CA in the spring... what was outdoor temp, by the way?

We're having a normal winter/spring/winter/spring. That day it was in the mid to high
60's. We have another week of 68-71 and then back to the rain and cold. You would love Auburn, and all the surrounding Gold Country towns; Grass Valley, Nevada City, Sutter Creek, Angels Camp, and Murphies to name just a few. If you guys ever make it to CA, please, stop in to see us!
