Classic Riverside winter view

The incessant, but much-needed and entirely welcome, rains of the last few days have ended. I’m glad it rained this weekend as it allowed me to reduce my sleep deficit by a few hours; hearing rain in the morning I found it really easy to roll over, rather than getting up and going for a walk. This is the day after the rains: chilly and clear and very Riverside in winter. Stately Rubidoux Heights craftsman homes on one side, overlook the bike path below, leading to Fairmount Park on one side, Mt. Rubidoux and the Santa Ana River on the other. A vintage concrete lamp post hearkens back to the neighborhood’s heyday while supermodel-thin classic palm trees sway haughtily in the breeze. Clouds that floated in from a Maxfield Parrish print complete a picture out of Riverside history. It’s the kind of day that makes me glad we moved here. Perfect.
