Mostly sunny

Stroll through Jack London, Wilson’s art studio and the Village Fair

Chocolate on the go

Anne Abrams from Jack London State Historical Park wrote recently to share what fun the 340 running folks had at the park’s recent Chocolate Run. Runners as young as 5 years old competed in the 5K event - where all were winners.

The fresh autumn air that swept in on the heels of Saturday’s surprise storm made for a sweet run day Sunday. Runners stopped enroute to enjoy chocolate on the go, and were awarded with chocolate medals, no doubt fashioned by Betty Kelly from Wine Country Chocolates, at the finish.

Slow autumn stroll

Another event coming up this weekend, Saturday, Oct. 5, at Jack London Park features one of my favorite Bouverie docents. That would be naturalist John Lynch, who is quite the expert on just about any subject you’d care to broach. John knows oak apples, woodpeckers, trees and fungi. With Halloween in mind, John will search out witches’ broom and discover spiders’ towering turrets, while educating you about our local bats.
