We finally had the opportunity to get out and about and explore our new city of Redding in California. We ventured down to Turtle Bay and walked the sun dial bridge and admired the Sacramento River.
It really is beautiful here, lots of lush forests and mountains are all around us. There are also lots of trails, rivers, parks and lakes and I cant wait to explore them all. It is coming to the end of summer here. The weather has been hot, up in the high thirties and some days even in the forties but the heat is actually tolerable, the sun does not seem to beat down so fiercely here like it does in Australia. It has not kept us indoors at all, we have still be walking to the store and back in the middle of the day. We have another month of warm days and then the weather will turn and fall shall be upon us. It will be lovely to see the trees turn from green to yellow and orange.
