The Hills are alive with the sound of ........

El Sobrante Hills Posted by Hello

Spring is the greenest time of the year. The hills are really dressed to the nines with their lush green suits. This is the view from the naturalized hillside of our home.

El Sobrante means left- overs in Spanish. It originally refers to the open space left between the spanish land grants of the 1800's. It's not a city. It is an unincorporated county town.
We don't pay city taxes. Now that is a plus!

It also means that our semi rural lifestyle is freer than most.
Folks around here have horses, goats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys and mini donkeys.
I have seen these animals in the greater one mile neighborhood.

I always enjoy seeing someone riding down Appian Way on their horse.
Old Mills Feed Store has been here forever. The owners passed away years ago, but I nod at their still standing sign, Feed of All Kinds.

Maybe a semi rural lifestyle will be the Feed for Your Life.
