Island of the Blue Dolphins

Wednesday's Attic

This is why I love California. You can stand on the beach in the sun and take a picture of snow at the same time.

Look the other way and there are the Channel Islands If you ever read the book Island of the Blue Dolphins as a child, the Island in question is one of the channel Islands. San Nicholas Island.

Freeway Santa

Wedneday's attic

This Santa was originally found at Santa Clause, California which is sort of on the way to Santa Barbara up the 101. He is now in Oxnard CA. and is visible from the freeway. Santa was built in 1948 as part of a strip mall named Santa Claus Lane in Santa Claus, CA. (famous for its Date Shakes, which were like drinking a Fig Newton). He was moved to a vacant lot next to a mobile home park in Oxnard in 2003.

Pictorial of the workday that was my 50th birthday!

Wednesday's Attic
This post may not be very exciting. I decided in honor of my 50th Birthday, which fell on a weekday so of course I was working, to document my average workday. As you will see I have a very long commute, so most of it is Southern California freeway driving. So without further ado- here it  is!

I awoke to these lovely red roses from my sweet husband

I started taking pics on the 210 while heading to work. I drive 4 freeways every day. The first part of the 210 is the pretty part of my drive.

The 210 where it turns up to go through Pasadena. I call this part 'the first 210' and the part after the tunnel 'the second 210'

Yes, its bumper to bumper on the other side. Glad I am not headed that way! And yes, you get to see all this through my dirty windshield just like I do.

The Miller Brewery. I pass this stinky place everyday.

This is the 57 freeway heading south toward the dreaded 10 freeway.

Ahhh the interchange. Be on your toes here!…
