SPRING TIME AT THE RIVER

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Just last week the garden was alive with blossoms, clematis, tulip trees and plum blossoms. 

So many things in bloom.

GRAVENSTEIN APPLE FAIR AND MORE

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

 

They call it “the sweetest little fair in Sonoma County”

SUN AT LAST…

Monday, June 13th, 2011

The pool is open and so is Johnson’s Beach. Burke’s Canoes is going full blast, Soar Canoe and Kayak Rental  and the Canopy Tours are booking up fast.

Saturday, June 18th from noon to 4:00 PM there is the Art in the Park afternoon with the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, which is a free event except for parking fees. On July 9th there is the Gourmet Hike and Silent Auction which sells out quickly.

 

July brings a couple of nearby Independence Day celebrations.  Monte Rio celebrates on Saturday, July 2nd and Guerneville’s fireworks display is on Monday the 3rd of July.  Who does not like fireworks?  You can go to the events or watch them from the grounds at Creekside Inn

 

The Friday evening Occidental Farmers Market is open with a great selection of local produce, cheese, honey and crafts.  It is hard to pass up the great food stands from Mexican and Indian fare to my favorite Gerard’s Paella and pizza made in a wood fired oven.

 

New this year:  Papa Finch and two babies-barely visible just 2  eyes and 2 beaks.
