This is a Spotted Towhee we caught along the Mitchell Creek trail at Mount Diablo singing his fool head off. Yes, spring is upon us. There is only so much sitting in front of my computer and selling Sacramento real estate one can do before one finally decides to get out in nature. This is the thing that keeps me sane. Which is odd because when I was younger, like between my 20s and 40s, I would never be caught dead in State Park or hiking along windy mountain trails. Not when I could be living large urbanwise. My how things change when we get older. I have developed such a deep affinity for hikes, especially through meadows and forests (not so much going straight up, gotta tell ya that). Mount Diablo is less than a 90-minute drive from Sacramento to the Mitchell Creek Visitor's Center. ...

A Ghost Story I Heard Often While Growing Up - a haunted restaurant in Clayton, CA As Halloween is approaching, I started to think about a haunted restaurant in the town next to mine, La Croquett. I remember hearing this ghost story as I was growing up here in the area.  I believe La Croquett is now Moresi's, but the story remains. Apparently the building was standing in 1857, one of the first buildings when the town of Clayton was founded. Across the street is a saloon (still there, I believe, but certainly with a different name). According to the story, a miner from the Black Diamond Mines area got into a fight there. When the argument turned into a shoot out, one of the bullets went through the window and struck a little girl playing in the street. The people on the street brought th...

I NEED TO SELL MY CLAYTON CA HOUSE There comes a time when almost everyone will need to sell their Clayton house.  If could be because you have outgrown it with an increasing family or you want to downsize because you find yourself an empty nester.  You may have been transferred, promoted or found a better opportunity further away.    In these tough economic times, you may find that for one reason or another; you can no longer maintain the payments and have to explore the option of a short sale. Whatever the reason, I'm sure your goal is to sell it in the shortest amount of time, at the best possible price and with the least amount of stress.  This is where my expertise can help you sell your Clayton  house.  During and after the sale of their Clayton homes, my clients have remarked "I ...

Did you know in the City of Clayton we have wildlife??? Ostriches on the Seeno Property in the Oakhurst country club... when you walk along the trail, sidewalk that sides where they are resting, walking, grazing... they will follow you.  I tried it the other day, walk, stop and they walk and stop with you .  they are quite large and fascinating to my grandkids, as they are not often seen outside of a zoo or animal preserve.

Clayton, California Oakhurst Country Club walk On a walk through Oakhurst Country Club, Clayton California...you miss a lot when you just drive through Oakhurst in Clayton.  The area is a well thought out series of communities surrounded by greenbelts and beautiful scenery that is part of our Mt. Diablo Foothills experience here in Clayton, California. For example.  The waterfall that is part of the golf course. The waterfall is not running every day so it's a treat to see it flowing .  Here I am just about to climb the BIG hill which is what we walkers call it...along side the golf course going up toward the SEENO home at the top of the hill and several luxury home subdivisions in the country club. Some golf course shots seldom seen if you don't walk just about 10 steps off the trail...
