Welcome to our home page. We live in Franklin Canyon, California, an unincorporated section of northern Contra Costa County near the city of Martinez.

Martinez is a small town on the Carquinez Strait, a part of San Francisco Bay. It's the birthplace of the martini, baseball great Joe DiMaggio, and the long-time home of naturalist John Muir.
