Valentine’s Day Lunch on Main Street

Over the years I’ve mentioned that I’m not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. But it’s slowly grown on me. However Patrick and I have never do anything big, and don’t exchange gifts. Since moving to California, I’ve used Valentine’s Day as an excuse to wear something red and/or pink, maybe with hearts, and go…

Tracing California’s Orange Roots at the Citrus State Historic Park

The orange is one of the most iconic things about California.

Most of our journey to Arizona took us through the northern part of the state, which is the area that Route 66 cuts through, and no trip to Arizona along Route 66 would be complete without staying at the iconic Wigwam Village. Back in 1938, Chester E. Lewis was driving through Cave City, Kentucky when…
