One of our guide books describes Fresno as a town "almost classic in its ugliness" which can't easily be avoided. Most people pass through Fresno enroute to Yosemite. We passed through Fresno to visit our very dear friend Ludlow, his delightful wife, Catherine and their wonderful daughters.

The Shonnards at home
We visited the Shonnard's on Easter weekend and were entertained fabulously well. Dinner was great, the company amusing and witty, the accommodation was excellent and Easter breakfast was a masterpiece. 

As we all know, El Niño has deluged California. As a result, the area around Fresno was delightfully green and the Shonnard's back garden was heavenly. Doesn't remind you much of Fresno, does it?
