Sears Point Sonoma

This past weekend we left the deluge of rain and drove to Sonoma California to enjoy the CSRG Vintage Auto Races at Sears Point Raceway. Our weather was gorgeous and the rain stayed away.  The track gets very windy so it was cool and we bundled up.

Mr. C was enjoying his weekend watching the club racers drive this historic track.  In fact in his racing days he drove this track and it is one of his favorites.  I know he is wanting to get back into racing and this group of folks is very friendly and enjoy racing their vintage automobiles.  However for us the logistics of buying a car and all of the equipment necessary is not feasible at this time while we are hoping to sell our home and move out of state.  And a big Happy Birthday to Mr. C this April 12th as he turns 75.  Another reason this CSRG club is right due to many others who are this age.

If we could wave a magic wand this is the car Mr. C would like to own and drive.  An amazing Chevron that is wicked fast.  Danny Baker owns and drives it very well.  It is always good to have a dream and a goal.

My pictures are not good but I at least got the cars in the frame.  We were way up on the top of a hill at the back of the track.  The views were awesome.  And you can see the hills are emerald green.

Yes, I was there and bundled up.  The wind really blows up on the hills.  Gorgeous days and we enjoyed visiting with friends who are drivers and meeting and chatting with so many of the club members. 
What hobbies do you enjoy?  We love Formula 1, Indy, Club Racing and so many others.
I am enjoying the longer sunshine each day.  We still have rain predicted for a couple days this week. All the new Spring growth will be very happy.  Flowers blooming and trees budding.
I would like to share something creative however I haven't done anything worthy of sharing.  I barely have time to keep up with all the Random Acts of Mail, Love Notes Fairy mail and this month of April that is National Letter Writing Month.  This year I am only participating in NLWM unofficially. Last year it got too crazy for me and I mailed about 300 pieces across this world.  No time or extra money for that this year. 
Happy Birthdays to my Sisters Joyce,  Marie, lots of friends and my dear husband.  Let us Celebrate and eat CAKE!!!  <3


  1. Happy birthday Mr C a couple of days early! Looks like you had a good time. Glad for you. thanks as always for sharing.

  2. That’s a fun little road trip and all the new greenery for Spring looks beautiful. Happy Birthday to Mr. C. I like hearing that Cali is getting some good rain.

  3. Looks like it was a beautiful day. I'd rather look at the hills than at the race cars. :) Happy April celebrations to all.

  4. What a nice way to spend Mr. C's birthday, and such a beautiful spot. Happy day to him! I like seeing the greening up.

  5. Happy birthday to Mr. C and your sisters!! What a fun way to spend the weekend!! Your pictures are fabulous!! You did an awesome job getting the cars in the photos...they go by so fast!! When I lived in Indy, I drove by the 500 track every day on my way to work :) I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and still praying that the perfect buyer comes along soon!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  6. WOW hats off to you for having mailed that many letters last year...I struggle with the odd 20 or so cards I mail out during Christmas!!

  7. Very happy Birth Day wishes to Mr. C! And the other members of your family too. Not so sure I would want to race vintage cars - I'd be so afraid something would happen to them.

  8. Happy birthday to Mr. C and all of the rest! Wow, so many birthdays. In also love car racing. So many mailed letters. They are refreshing today in our world of email and social media. Not that there's anything wrong with those venues, but there is something special about hand-written mail.
