When I'm on the peninsula for my brother's estate business I stay at his house in Chico. I like Chico because I have so many memories of my brother here—so much time I spent with him here. And I feel like he's still around. Even his shoes are in the same place he left them.
I bring the animals over and we spend a few days or a week at a time. Pepe and I go for a 'walk' a couple times a day in the bay and kitten gets to run around and act like a wild panther. We have family dinners and campfires in the beach fireplace. Sometimes we take a day cruise in my old car.
We're keeping Chico as a family house and as hard as it is to adjust to the fact that Kye won't be coming back I still feel like he visits us here <3
