Yo soy Peep!

Somewhere near San Juan Bautista, CA

bikenutt and I went out in search of more abandonments, but living in the South Bay (aka Silicon Valley) makes it a bit more of a challenge.  There just isn't a lot that is left to its own devices around here.  Being a native Californian (and a native of the Bay Area specifically) a lot of what the valley is known for now (technology) has quite literally paved right over what it was known for then (agriculture). 

When I was younger, I remember looking out of the car window and seeing more orchards than buildings.  Driving the same route today makes me feel like I'm walking down the aisle of an electronics store.  "Veer to the right at the oak tree" used to be the landmark directions to my childhood home, but now it would be more like, "Continue through the two miles of Cisco campus, turn left at Sony, when you see Creative Labs, make a right."
So, needless to say, we had to travel a bit to find anything remotely interesting.  With a general destination in mind, and a few lucky turns, we ended up finding this great little place.  I regretfully don't have any information for you about the structure itself, other than the cross-streets where we stumbled upon it.

On another trip to the same area, we ran across this little blue house.  It was for sale, although I doubt they were selling the house so much as the land all things considered...
