Big Bear & Rose
Onyx sent me this and a few other Pict's she had copied so i could resume with her story with some visual aid.
Thank You Sweet one!
We were talking about her childhood and she remembered a time she and her family had been given a gift of a stay at a special little cabin spot up in the Mountains of California, a place called Big Bear.
Her Mother had been working at Convair doing her Patriotic duty as Rosey the Riveter and a friend who was a Realtor decided the family needed a treat.
So they drove the wooded roads up into the grand mountains.
Onyx remembers the little town had a bowling alley, a cafe and "a beautiful lake".
This picture is Not Big Bear lake but ... to get an idea .. Onyx was not shy about playing in the water.
Though i bet Big Bear is a whole lot colder!
She also recalled seeing many wild deer that seemed to be as curious about their arrival as the family was of the deer. None of them ran away, instead they stopped munching and stared right back til Mom and the folks went on up the road.
One morning she awoke at sunrise to the surprise of a rather nosey deer peering in the window at her as she lay in her bed.
She called out to her Mother in excitement and the deer remained right in the garden by that window for some time.
She says they returned to Big Bear several years after that and always felt refreshed & ready to take on the world.
