Dia de los Muertos The Day of the Dead

Tomorrow is the official Day of the Dead holiday, but celebrations have been going on around her for a week. This one included a classic car show with alters created in the trunks or hoods of the cars. Several of those who built the alters were there to tell stories of their lost loved ones. The blue one was for a baby lost at 4 months old.










There was also an alter building contest. Look how beautiful!














This is the oldest pepper tree in California. There is something in the tree. Can you see it?

Here is a closer look...

It's a Cat!!! Sleeping on a soft bed of leaves on a nice pepper tree burl.
Our day ended with some freshly made TAMALES!!
