I started my first full week of vacation going back to where I came from. This is going to be one long post.
I started the morning off with a visit to my financial advisor (who is a family friend) in Huntington Beach and then headed back to my hometown. On my way I passed the old Uniroyal building (now the Citadel Outlet Mall) where my parents worked and met
Then I stopped at a Jack in the Box for lunch and picked up some flowers at Albertsons to take to my parents at Resurrection Cemetery
I went to the bookstore and bought a few children's books for a friend's son. Then I drove over past Central Park where I spent many summers going to Concerts in the Park
Then I went over to Painter Ave where the trees are taking over the street!!
And I stopped at my Alma Mater, Whittier College. I started with a picture of a beautiful Jacaranda Tree
The library and a sculpture
Philadelphia Street, which runs through campus on one side
View of Whittier from the hills
Michigan Park where we had many family get togethers
Weird bird sculpture
JC Penney's at the old Whitwood mall (now the Whitwood Town Center. They tore down the mall and made it an open shopping center)
I met up with a friend from college at Tony's Pizza after my Whittier tour. For desert I got a Jamba Juice then drove back to Bonnie's in the Valley through major traffic.
I miss Whittier a lot. I would love to move back, but the cost and earthquakes are major deterrents lol.
