We had a fabulous two months in Southern California this past spring. Our son lives in a community called Temecula. We fell in love with the town and “old town”. A great place to shop. One of the things that stood out was the lush green landscaping, flowers, street signs were visible and “so clean”. Wine country at its best. We visited a few of them and found the Cougar Winery to be exceptional. We visited San Diego and the waterfront district, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, Malibu had a ride to remember up Mulholland Drive. That road is so twisting and curvy and certainly not a relaxing drive. Ha!
We took our son to San Fernando Valley where he was born. The hospital is still there and the home in Panorama City is still in existence. Can not believe the change in 50 years time. Van Nuys Blvd. didn’t even look familiar. My husband graduated from Birmingham High School in Van Nuys and the school is still there. We use to treat ourselves to a Bobs Big Boy now and then and so we had to stop in Taluca Lake to have a Big Boy. They taste the same.
Visited family in Covina and Whittier also. Traveling the freeways out there are different than here in the Twin Cities. At times we were standing still! One thing I have to mention is the motorcycles traveling between the car lanes. I couldn’t believe it and it is legal.
It was a good trip and we plan to go again next year.
Life is good!
