It takes a lot of time and effort to get a house ready to sell. If you’ve ever sold a home you know what I mean. We had pictures taken today and have a few days before the listing goes live, giving me the time to write this blog and go on a photo outing tomorrow.
Today’s post is on the Vic Fazio Yolo Wildlife Area–we locals call it the Yolo Bypass. This close-to-home wildlife area that covers 25 square miles and is home to nearly 200 species of birds. I’ve never seen 200 birds, but it’s close to home and usually we can spot a few species. Unlike other wildlife areas, we are allowed to get out of our cars to photograph the wildlife.
However, the last couple of times I’ve been there, the wind was blowing so hard that even the birds were having trouble. This recent outing was a challenge for me to hold a heavy camera and lens while bracing myself in the wind.
Still, it was fun and I’m looking forward to the break in the house selling effort to attend my Tuesday group’s outing to the Historic Old Sacramento City Cemetery. Marlene is spicing it up with a scavenger hunt.
We’re not moving far, just downsizing. When you’re in your mid 70s, it’s best to think ahead and buy a home without stairs, etc.!

I do not envy you the task of readying a house to sell and then the act of moving. Many emotions I am sure …….love, Lynn
You got it Lynn. I’m projecting a quick sale of our current house because we have a home waiting for us. I’m not sure we’re going to make it to the desert. It depends on how the open house goes. Love to you and Elaine.
Been there, done that……several times. Fingers crossed you get a quick sale and can begin your next chapter. Your wildlife photos are beautiful……
Thanks Donna. I’m programming in multiple offers all over asking price. I’ll be happy when this is over!
I was missing your blog!!! Nice you’re back with these beautiful birds!! 🙂
Good luck with the house! Hope you can sell it soon!
Thanks Mercedes. I hate selling houses, and I’m hoping this weekends open houses will sell it. Then the work of moving starts. Going to be a busy month!
