Oceana Santa Barbara #santabarbara

hotel203 blogMany years ago, when my husband and I were dating, we stayed at the Ambassador By The Sea Motel in Santa Barbara, California.  I just came across these matches that I took from the hotel as a souvenir.   Since then, of course, they have remodeled and it’s now called Oceana Santa Barbara.  It’s across the street from the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara.  It’s on prime Santa Barbara land and in a very touristy area.  On Sundays there is the Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Festival, which has fabulous items, all handmade in Santa Barbara.  The hotel still looks like a cute place to stay.

I would like to be in Santa Barbara right now!  Don’t tell me you are going there!  But please tell me if you have been there!

Piece of Fruit

7 Apr

apple_7694 ch blogI photographed this piece of fruit in Malibu.  Is it an orange?  Embarrassed to say I don’t know!  The tree was in a pot and was very small.  Let me know what it is once it’s ripe.

Food Mart in Agoura Hills, California #agourahills

food mart_7814 blogThis Food Mart in Agoura Hills, California is where you get gas and buy groceries or whatever food you need when you are traveling.  It’s the equivalent of Kwik Trip  or PDQ in Wisconsin.

Only in California are there chandeliers in their gas stations! 

Love it!

Mission Burrito in Canoga Park, California #missionburrito

1 Jan

I am very sad to tell you that a couple of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Canoga Park (Los Angeles), Mission Burrito and it’s sister restaurant Sierra’s is closing down…today.  That sucks!  Here is the article.

Luckily I went there a couple times during my recent visit to Los Angeles.  I ordered a bean and cheese burrito and put lots of salsa on it, not that it needed it.

The Mission Burrito in West Hills is going to stay open, so I can go there for my Mission Burrito fix.

Mannequin #mannequin

12 Dec

I was driving in Van Nuys and saw this mannequin on the back of a car.  Not sure what it means but I was glad I was able to take a photo of it.  I hope it’s not offensive, cuz I don’t know what it’s about.
