I wish they all could be California Girls
– The Beach Boys, California Girls
We went to California during the first week of July.
Saw friends; enjoyed the city; happened upon the Pride Parade, and bumped into more friends.
It was a great way to start the trip.
Then onward, to Big Sur.
And the Hearst Castle. They have zebras. And I always forget that everyone else in the world says zeb-ra, not zee-bra, the way Americans do. So when Paul tried to point them out, I had no idea what he was trying to say.
Speak American, darling.
Then on to Santa Barbara.
From there, we drove to my parents’ house. More friends; more family. Hooray!
Celebrated Fourth of July with my family.
(One of these siblings lives on the East Coast, and one lives on the West Coast, and I betcha can’t tell which is which).
A good trip was had by all.
Especially Paul, who asked me to take this picture laying back so only one of his chins was apparent in the photo.
