We love to get in the car and go exploring up in our local mountains! Our horses are up there anyway, but sometimes we just drive other places, armed with cameras! Sunday afternoon we drove through Garner Valley, past the old Garner Valley Realty. Much to our surprise, the building was in disrepair, old, and vacant. In its prime, it was a busy place. And, the sign out front was amusing...a realty office for sale! I have always loved that office~~30 years ago it was where we bought our 5 acres in Garner Valley. We had it for several years and parked our VW van on it and went hiking on the weekends. But, then I got pregnant and we had a baby to support and we couldn't support both on one income, so we sold the property. I miss hiking in Garner Valley, but my cousin, Valerie, lives there and so I still have a chance to visit! Last summer she took one of my horses, Beauty, and boarded her for the summer and saddle broke her. This summer, she'll take another one of our horses, so I'll have many opportunities to visit GV! That's My World for Tuesday, March 10, 2009.
