You really captured the quaint, small town feel in your essay. I can imagine many residents there happily living their entire lives in this town. Very nicely done.

I grew up in a small village in Maine. A one room school house with all eight grades and one teacher for all. I was put ahead a year because I was too tall. I think it was 1955.

Really enjoyed the trip and the feelings. Looks like a lovely place to live.

Having just turned back form LA your pictures are as exotic for CA as one could imagine. Have to remind myself that CA is a BIG place and has more than we can imagine, (we, people from the East Coast). There is even the quaint clapboard church an the amazing landscape almost from the Alps . and all under a melodious name of Nicasio with a village counting 96 souls.
Your pictures made me search more. Lovely stuff.

I like that there are no people in this essay. You show us the town through its buildings and landscapes. People change the POV, make it something else.

I cannot express my thoughts better than ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' tnun did.

Such a relaxed, joyous tour through the place. Thanks.

a gem of understatement(s). the place, the wide margins, the apparently effortless framing. I am charmed.

Quit engaging, Alice - I very much enjoyed the trip! (But why so small with the photos? Go full width!)

A charming look at a bit of "small town America" not 20 miles from downtown San Francisco.

Sometime around 1970 my dad and I took a class at SF State where we excavated a former Native American habitation site on one of the nearby ranches ... on the very last day we found a burial site.

Someplace I have a topographic map I made after we learned how to survey the site ...

Alice, I REALLY enjoyed your lovely essay! Nicasio; what a beautiful name. I wonder how it's pronounced? I could look it up, but what if it's not said the way I want to hear it ... Ni-kars-eeoh? That's a perfect sound, a romantic Italian kind of sound, so I would not like it to actually be something less melodious ... like Nee-ka-see-o.

The place looks almost impossibly inviting. Your essay made me want to go there, and it also convinced me that you love Nicasio. I can see why; both in what your photographs show, and in how perfectly they show it. Thank you!
