This past weekend our local Sacramento chapter of the Golden Gate Lotus Club (GGLC) and our parent chapter from San Francisco Bay area met in Woodland at Van and Catherine's Historic 1868 Home and 80 acres of farm land in Woodland CA. We spent the day enjoying a BBQ with lots of delicious foods. Guests came and went depending on time allowances...after all it is busy Summer.
Home tours of this historic mansion were enjoyed by both men and women. No photos of the inside out of respect for the privacy of the homeowners. Trust me it is amazing.
Indoor parking for four Lotus Esprits in the Barn. Van actually owns five and there are two more parked in a double garage on the property. The black Lotus is Wayne's and is being offered to a new owner if you are interested.
Here we have Wayne (aka Mr. C) getting ready to lead the club drive around the Country Roads. I offered my seat to Joe who gladly jumped in for the ride. It is like an "E" ticket ride if any of you remember Disneyland in the early days.
Here the cars are lined up ready to VROOM. Yes, we allow daily drivers to also enjoy the run and scenery. Not everyone has a Lotus that can make the trip or is street legal.
Our turn out wasn't huge but a nice number of people came and enjoyed. After all it was about 101F. Thankfully we had a giant shade tree for very pleasant chatting and story telling.
Bubba Wayne (aka Mr. C) also did a Hay ride through the Sunflower and Tomato fields. It was such fun and our youngest guest, 8 year old Sebastion, really enjoyed learning about farming.
We are very grateful to our hosts Van and Catherine for this lovely day of fun and comaraderie.
Until next year...Keep the Shiny Side Up!!!
