Finding Treasures

While in Carslbad, California the other day with my friend we found a really amazing place.

The Leo Carrillo Ranch.

Have you ever been there?

Do you remember Leo Carrillo?

He played in the show The Cisco Kid as ‘Pancho’ in the early 1950’s.

When he wanted to escape Los Angeles, relax and spend time with his family, he retreated to the ranch in Carlsbad.

It’s a lovely area covered with adobe structures he built with his family to live in.

The grounds have peacocks walking around everywhere.

It’s quiet, peaceful and I could see how Leo would have loved it our there.

I did.

We walked around for quite a while.

We enjoyed watching the birds strut around, feeling the breeze in the trees and just took in the general quiet and peacefulness of the area.

Here are some images I took from that day.

I hope (as usual) that you enjoy them.

As a side note, if you’re in Southern California, in the summer they have movies outside on this lovely ranch.

Bring a picnic and a bottle of wine. Sit under the stars and watch an old classic movie. For Free!

Can you think of any better way to spend a lovely summer night?

Check the website in July for the schedule.
