A Sunday Drive in Search of a Few Blossoms
March 2019

March 24, 2019: A Sunday Drive Looking for a Few Blossoms. We hit it between the rainstorms, clear skies, moderate temps, just right for touring. Six T's, an A, and 3 moderns showed up with enthusiastic Model T people at the Rancho meeting place. Comment was immediately made that there were no black T's. only 3 red, 1 yellow, 1 green and 1 dull brown, would Henry approve? The group took a circuitous route that took us to the Heritage Orchard in Los Altos (few apricot blossoms still hanging on after this week's rain) and then sticking mostly to two lane side streets with little traffic, we made our way through Los Altos Hills, Cupertino and Sunnyvale, ending up at the Heritage orchard in Sunnyvale (last week's blossoms gone and replaced by new leaves, how quickly things change.) We did however enjoy blossoms along the way, lots of trees still in bloom here and there on our route especially tulip trees and pretty flower gardens! We had a picnic lunch and then went into the Heritage Museum to look at the artifacts and history of the Valley of Hearts Delight. Final activity, half the folks went for yogurt and the other half went for ice cream. Now that is the measure of a successful tour! We had 4 driving patches earned on this tour. We need extra-large patches for the folks who drove all the way up from the South Bay
