Back home! Went on a
little vacation to Southern California, mostly to visit with friends and
cousins that I have scattered all across that region. It was a great time, (Thanks, Folks!). Besides socializing, there were a few things
of interest that I visited:
Integratron is one of the great monuments to the UFO cults of the Fifties and
Sixties, now transformed into a sort of New Age center. http://integratron.com/
The L.A. Arboretum is a very interesting and
relaxing place to wander around and admire its plants and gardens. The section devoted to Australian plants was my favorite. www.arboretum.org.
Pismo Beach – a fun beach and resort town. http://www.pismobeach.org/
Go for the walk and view on the pier, stay for their famous clam chowder.
The Stone Brewery Store in Pasadena - https://www.facebook.com/StoneStorePasadena
I have yet to get to my favorite brewery’s
headquarters, but this was a nice substitute. Finally got to try the chipotle smoked porter: Yum!
