The Ole Homestead

San Diego isn’t all city lights and beaches you know.

We also have real, live, BACK COUNTRY.

Usually I’m rushing around and drive right past this fabulous homestead, but today, I pulled over my horse and buggy (“Whoa there!”) and jumped out to take a few photos.

I should get extra credit for these shots since I had to hold the reins while focusing my camera…

(Processed that one in “Old Paper” effect.)

Or maybe you prefer sepia?

“Pa did not like a country so old and worn out that the hunting was poor. He wanted to go west. For two years he had wanted to go west and take a homestead, but Ma did not want to leave the settled country.”
