City Slicker Visits the Ranch, Part 1

Whenever I have the chance to visit the McEvoy Ranch, I jump at the opportunity. The ranch is a special place. I also get a break from the daily hustle and bustle of the McEvoy Ferry Building shop.

Last week, I was asked to come to the ranch for the monthly staff meeting. My purpose was to update the ranch with the happenings at the shop and in the Ferry Building.

While driving up to the ranch, I couldn't stop thinking about the new windmill. I heard so much about it, and I was finally going to get my first look at the windmill. Or, as some people in the renewable energy industry like to call it, the wind turbine.

As I drove through the main gate and down to the parking lot, I noticed a lot of activity taking place in and around the ranch. I had to remind myself that this is a working ranch, and everyone here is very busy. The ranch is constantly evolving and changing. Never a dull moment.

After I parked my car, I immediately looked out the window toward a very high hill. At the top of the hill stood this tall, I mean big windmill. In fact, it looked like a rocket ready for lift off from the Kennedy Space Center.

When I got out of the car, I couldn't take my eyes off it. It's quite a site to see. I decided, however, to explore this windmill further and get a closer look at it. When the staff meeting ended, I made plans to go to the top of the hill.
