I wanted to go to Union Station, Olvera Street, Philippe for lunch and then Chinatown, but despite saying that it would be partly cloudy with a 10% chance of rain, it was raining on and off and I didn't want to get my camera wet, so I didn't make it to Chinatown.

But I did do the others, and here are the pics! Let the mushrooms in my front yard welcome you in:

When I was in Ventura to go to the endo 2 weeks ago, I saw a tree that was chained in by a fence and it killed me that I didn't get a picture. Well, today I did!

But first, this bumper sticker cracked my shit up.


Unfortunately it isn't clear enough to really read it: One Big Ass Mistake America

My former co-worker D and her family are up in Solvang for a few days at the Wyndham Time Share Resort, so they invited me over for a family dinner. It was nice to see them all again (they have an 18 year old, a 5 year old and a 1 year old), but the 1 year old was sick and he kept screaming through most of the night, which really made me insane. But it was nice to see them.

So, I had to drive through the San Marcos Pass to get from Santa Barbara to Solvang, and I was taking some pictures for [Bad username or site: @] to see the countryside.

Let's start at the top!

You know how in one of my voice posts I talked about the dead pig on the side of the road. Last week, I drove by the field in the photograph below and there were about 40 pigs in the field, but I thought they were domesticated. Well, I was talking to a co-worker who also lives in Lompoc, and she said that those pigs (and the various dead ones on the side of the road) are wild!

I was driving home from work tonight when i spied a family of the pigs in the field. So I pulled over, and unfortunately, as soon as I stepped out of the car, they moved away from the road (they were quite close) and started walking away. So, they are really small in this picture, but they are wild pigs!

So it's a beautiful morning, and my fridge is bare. I decide to drive into Santa Barbara to go to Trader Joe's and get some good food. I picked up a different triple cream brie (this is much sharper) from France, some feta from Israel, some havarti from Denmark, roasted yellow & red peppers (to go with the feta), a crispy baguette, some more Bogle Petite Syrah, and a few of their amazing frozen Mexican food products.

On the way back, it was 72 degrees and the hills on my drive home looked spectacular. The torrential rains of the last few weeks have made them green and the hills reminded me of Ireland. So I got out of my car in a few places and took pictures. Sorry these were taken with my crappy phone camera, but you get the idea.

ETA: This Israeli feta is amazing! God this is the best feta I have ever had. Eating it on baguette with roasted peppers. Mmmm...I am going to explode from cheese overindulgence.

So today I'm driving the 3 hour ride home from my parents' house, and I get thirsty and also have to pee. So I pull over to this humongous gas station and go into the Stop N Rob shop and use the bathroom (very clean, I was happy to find) and got a Diet Coke and found I wanted something to munch on. So I went over to the chips and found:
