Johnson Ranch Open Space

This was a good walk to whip up an appetite before heading down to Avila. (I saw a baby whale from the San Luis Harbor Pier, but I couldn't get a good picture.)

The path is a mostly through fields of gold. (The green season is pretty much over.) 

But there are a few nice shady spots. 

There was even water in a creek, though I didn't get a picture. And I never did see the pond that was supposed to be in the old quarry. I don't know if that's the drought or my lack of observation skills!
