Home Free - Wagon Wheel/Song of the South

“Why of course there is always hope”

Story by Diana Marcum

Photos by Robert Gauthier

We had planned on covering some miles, roll past the garlic and onion fields, past the black cows in pastures the color of tortilla chips, and travel north toward the Delta.

But we ran into parties at the Grove in Hollister, a farm-to-table restaurant owned by a winery that pulled its grapes this year because of the drought.

Aaron Avila, who used to be a police officer in Gilroy, was playing “Sweet Home Alabama” with his band, The Second Winds.

Sharon Fuqua, a cute little blonde in her 70s, was complaining she had no one to dance with.

“I m disappointed –  I sent emails to all the line dancers,” she said. (I may have joined her for a dance or two.) 

There were little girls in pink cowboy boots, teens in floaty dresses and a water fountain full of coins. (How many of them wishing for rain in the fall?)

At a shady table, Mike Bernal and Gay Rush, both 69,  were holding hands and smiling. She’d moved in with him six months ago at his Morgan Hill ranch.

They had been friends in their 20s and ran into each other again at the local Elks Club a few years back.

Mike Bernal and Gay Rush fell in love late in life.

They sat near a sign directing guests to a young couple’s boisterous engagement party. It read, “Love is sweet.”

At their ranch, deer were eating the succulents, which Mike had never seen before, and the place was overrun with ground squirrels because none of them had drowned in their burrows this year.

Mike’s family had first arrived in the area with the padres who built the missions. His mother, Mary Bernal, died in December at the age of 100.

“She couldn’t remember nothing like this drought, and she had all her marbles. Sharp and active till the last day of her life,“ he said.

“We’ve had dry years before,” said Gay. “But this is different. You’re always waiting. Waiting for the well to go dry. Waiting for the rains.”

A guy at the next table leaned over to say a San Diego baseball game had been rained out.

“It’s too weird to even contemplate: rain in July,” Mike said, shaking his head.

If the rains hit here this time of year, it wouldn’t be good for strawberries or peaches or a lot of other fruit.

“It will rain in September,” Gay said. “This drought has got to break sometime.

“There’s always hope.”

Mike looked at their entwined hands.

“Why of course there is always hope,” he said.
