Back of Our Backyard
Our area was really quite rural. Our back yard (which was all sand) backed up to this farm which had sheep. There are two water tanks in this picture. One of them- the closest one looks like a regular stock tank. The other one in the back looks like a small square tower with the tank on the top. In this area of California, it rarely rains. It is sometimes quite foggy here though.
It rains in the winter sometimes. Otherwise, although it may cloud over and look like rain, it doesn't rain. So water storage for the livestock is necessary. It doesn't freeze here either, so that isn't a problem.
Whenever we traveled inland, I always had to think what season of the year it was - because while it was always kind of spring like where we were, just 50 miles away it might be over 100 degrees, or there might be snow.
