Oak Glen - December 27, 2014

Yesterday, we went to Oak Glen. The plan was to visit the Oak Glen Old School Museum, which was scheduled to be open from 12pm - 4pm. We got there at about 10am.

Little Sis played at the playground for a little bit, and then we decided to take a drive. We went to Oak Tree Village, where they had an animal museum, train and pony rides, and homey exhibitors with hand made items. There was also a little stand that sold mini donuts and hot apple cider. The donuts were amazing and the cider was dee-lish-us. 

After the Village, we continued our drive and stopped at Los Rios Rancho, a cute little shop with apples and apple butter and pumpkin butter and all kinds of other goodies. I bought a bag of Granny Smith Apples, and sampled just about everything else. 

The journey ended when we went back to the Old School Museum, hoping for it to be open. It wasn't. So Little Sis got to play at the playground again. There is a giant wooden seesaw, a play structure, and a rock wall (on which she got stuck - twice). There are restrooms there as well, but they were locked. Perhaps they are open if the museum is open. The playground was clean, too. No trash or graffiti. There are also picnic tables, which would be a great way to spend a few hours when the weather is warmer. 

I am hoping to write more about our Southern California travels.

Some pictures from our trip yesterday:
Oak Glen Village has two deer and a goat outside. For 25c, you can get a little bit of corn to feed them. Or, for $1, you can get a cup inside the animal museum. The cup is a better deal. 






  
Signs at the Oak Glen Old School Museum park warn of bears and rattlesnakes. Thankfully, we didn't see any. It was too cold.
