Monochrome Monday ~ California

Got on board a west bound 747, it never rains in Southern California.

But man don’t they warn you, man it pours, man it pours.  England is my home, I want to go home, I want to go home, where it rains but it never pours.  And, they say it never rains in Southern California.

Southern California is a cool place to be.

Encinitas Pebble Garden

Some things are just such novel and cool ideas.

Scenes on Sunday # 16

This Sunday there’s some pictures of a California seaside town, (mostly of the beach).  These are just a few from a road trip I took with a friend, (a.k.a. the girl riding shotgun).  Almost everyone, (especially attractive women),  likes to hang around cool seaside towns, for the day, for a weekend, or even a short break, it’s just that there aren’t many places like Southern California.

All these shots were taken with a compact LUMIX Panasonic DMC-AS3 camera, using the built-in features.  This camera is so lightweight, small, and smart that it’s perfect for a long day in the sun, and keeping with you as the sun goes down, the fire-pits are lit, and the bars come alive.

San Juan Capistrano

Drive north from Encinitas in Southern California on the Interstate 5 and after 40 miles you will come to a famous place called San Juan Capistrano.

I wanted to go here because a song I heard a long time ago.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUSC37bLuuU

The swallows legend says that the faithful little birds return to the mission every year on March the 19th, St. Josephs Day.

The mission is a beautiful and restful place, filled with flowers, that reminded me of the set for a John Wayne western movie.

The town of San Juan Capistrano, is also a great place to sit in the sunshine ant eat chocolate ice cream, especially if you have a great girl with you

Encinitas

There is a City in Southern California named Encinitas.  It is by the beach.  Take Interstate 5 and it’s 80 miles south of where I was staying, somewhere near Santa Ana.

It means something special to a girl I know.  She took me there, and I acted like a jerk because I was jealous that she went there with a special guy before me.

P1030432

He must have been a great guy to have won such a fabulous girl such as she.  He served his flag and all I ever got to be was a snot-nosed officer cadet.

We had a great day at the beach, then I spoiled it all because I wouldn’t eat sushi.  As I said, I acted like a jerk.

P1030525

This pathetic English fool wouldn’t even get into the Pacific Ocean.

P1030445

Since then I have gone on being a jerk.  Perhaps if I try hard enough she will still want to be my friend.  Perhaps I will go on trying for the rest of my life.

I hope this is not my sundown with her.
