Silicon Valley sounds like such a harsh place but it actually has some cute, little, quaint towns. Saratoga is one of those and I feel lucky to live just on the outskirts of it. I have the benefits of living close but not the high rent...actually, I don't think there are many rental places in Saratoga but the houses are more expensive. I grew up in Saratoga when I was little before we moved to San Jose. I remembered that there were cute little houses behind the church I attended. I found this cute neighborhood because my best friend and I used to cut Sunday School when we were in Jr. High and roam around the town for an hour and then make sure we were back in time before her parents came out of their service ....can you believe that! My daughter and I took a drive through these streets the first Saturday in April on our way home from the flea market. During our drive we stopped and took pictures from inside the car. Here are some of the homes we saw (these look so much cuter in person than they do in these pictures).
This house below is on the main road, Saratoga Ave. I'm not sure if this is an old house or if it's new and meant to look old. Lucky for us their gates were open so we just pulled up. See the french doors on the left side...I was so afraid someone was going come out of there and ask why we are taking pictures of their house!
This house was really nice but hard to take a picture of because of all the trees. It has a huge front porch.
There are a lot of quaint little areas in Silicon Valley so I'm going to try to get out and take some pictures to share with you in the future.
