Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Tarantulas!

It’s time again for the tarantulas to make their seasonal migration to their breeding grounds in the Santa Ynez Valley. Here’s one crossing the road.

To get more information about the spiders and where they’re headed, see this link. I saw my first one last Wednesday evening and since then I’ve seen four more, two smooshed flat on the road, two more making their way across.

If you are looking for tarantulas good places to drive include Brinkerhoff Road, through Woodstock Ranch and Oak Trail Estates, and on Calzada Road (off Roblar, not near Santa Ynez). This picture was taken on Calzada Road.

I've decided tarantulas bring good luck. Distribute rumor at will.
