We are awaiting a predicted deluge today, although the radar indicates most of it is going to go north. Apparently, all it takes to cause street flooding is a couple of inches of rain so they give the same STOCK UP! STAY HOME! warnings we get in Iowa for blizzards. Friday morning, we met some of Joanie's friends for breakfast and ran a few errands. It was sunny but with a chilly wind. That evening we had a great supper at Joanie's daughter and son-in-law's home. Yesterday, we journeyed downtown for the local farmer's market and vendor's fair. It was a beautiful day to amble down the street and enjoy the offered wares.
I especially enjoy the variety of architecture here. The Spanish colonial buildings, Craftsman bungalows, and quirky individual styles make for interesting neighborhoods--built before HOAs decided to impose their taste on all residents everywhere. We had lunch at an Irish pub with very good food, although my turkey burger and sweet potato fries probably aren't very Irish.
In the plans today is lunch with my cousin Dave and his wife, but it will depend on which way the storm tracks. Monday and Tuesday are supposed to be rainy and then perhaps a respite to get back out and do some exploring!
Some random thoughts about writing, camping, and eating.
