Oceanside, California

John and I went to Oceanside for a couple of days recently.  It was warm without being hot, and the beaches were almost empty.  I'll share a few pictures with you.  I had planned to share videos, but they won't load for som reason.




Pier View Cafe

Really cute house across from the beach


That is a swarm of bees on the side of the bike.  Poor guy was waiting for the county office to come and get the bees so he could get his bike and catch the last Metro Link home.  Wonder if he made it.

Recycled Rita's Booth in Country Roads Antiques

After our trip to Disneyland, we spent an afternoon in Old Town Orange.  I like to visit fellow blogger's antique booths when I get an opportunity.  Recycled Rita has a space in Country Roads Antique Mall in Old Towne Orange.  I loved your booth Karen, and it was so much fun to spend an afternoon shopping in the antique mall - even the guys had a great time looking around.

 I found a treasure in Karen's booth - a very cute picture of a little boy that was taken in 1903.  Check back to see what I make using this little guy.

You are Always a Kid at Disneyland

We spent two days at Disneyland, and we had a great time.  The weather was cloudy and a little cooler, but it turned out to be a perfect day.

The Gibson Girl ice cream parlor and Candy Palace have been undergoing a renovation for a couple of months, and the grand reopening was on the second day of our visit.  Boy, I really like candy!  We met Rob, a Master Candy Maker, and he told us about the renovation.
