A Day in Davis


Last Sunday we went to Davis to spend the day with Kaefer. Of course it was wonderful to see her again!!!

She enjoys living in the dorms that are in colorful buildings that leave open space between the buildings, trees and lots of parking for bikes. Davis, after all, is a bike town.


We walked around campus on our way to downtown Davis. Kaefer has recently joined the Davis Agility Nerds which is an off-campus club that does Parkour. She showed us a little bit of what they're doing when they get together. I could see how much she enjoys this.




She is still at a very basic level and doesn't jump from skyscraper to skyscraper - Thank goodness!

Of course we noticed some more of the famous eggheads that you can find all over the campus.



Davis is a sweet little town with a lovely downtown - lots of trees line the streets here. Some houses look rather rundown and offer some interesting items on their porches. There is also quite a bit of interesting art to see.





Lots of outdoor cafes and beautiful young women...



We also spent some time in the Arboretum where we lazily sat on a bench, watching people, some turtles and two very active otters on the other side of the little stream. It was a beautiful autumn day!



Of course you can't go to Davis without visiting the cows!! Kaefer lives rather close to them and told us that they are the "smelliest" right before dawn. The two of us spent some time with the cows who were quite curious and one of them even wanted to eat my shirt.



Unfortunately way too soon we had to say our goodbyes again. It wasn't as hard as the day when we first took her to Davis, but I still miss my goofy girl.

And without doubt the most beautiful of those beautiful young women is your girl.
Love her agility, and loved wandering with you. Thank you. And hooray for a town with lots of public art. And cows.

What a lovely day you had visiting your daughter. The town and campus looks quite interesting. I was amazed to see all the bicycles parked. I guess it is a true biking town.

Pleased to see your post of a really lovely place in which to study and it seems your gorgeous goofy girl is settling in very well.
All those bikes are reminiscent of towns in Germany. Great to see street art, it certainly adds character to the place. Good too to be so close to Nature spots.
I know how much you must miss her .... I did with my two but they always kept coming home on and off during their uni days accompanied by a variety of hungry friends to stay weekends.
I'm off on a solo trip to Lueneburg late Nov for the Weihnachtsmarkt. Can't wait.

Davis is indeed a nice town, just the right size I think. Glad you live close enough that you can easily visit your daughter. Still, I understand missing her at home.

I remember stopping in Davis on our way back from a trip and I liked it so much, nice to see your photos.

That girl of yours is a rock star and yes, beautiful, too.
