Joys in the little things

This has been a great few days in California. And productive…ugh. Talking about work, I know. But it has been good all around. 

Landing Sunday was by far a good choice. Who wants to spend a few hours in a truck after being on a five hour flight? Not me!

While performing the highway study I was sent out to do, the driver pointed out some local tidbits. You know things that don’t show up on tourist sites. Things like: a Tiki- themed drive-in movie. Or animals made from metal scraps. 


Or a gas station from 1915 and the parking lot from Back to the Future where Marty sped off into the past. Pretty cool places if you speak with the locals. 

Perhaps one of my favorite finds was a blast from my past: Jersey’s Mike’s Subs! 

Who would have thought I had to go to the West Coast to get lunch from one of my favorite places to eat on the East Coast? Yes, this picture made my husband jealous. We already planned to go there while visiting next week. But I was able to get a preview!! 

Can’t wait to see what today brings!
