Living in California is a mixed blessing. Two of my adult children
with families live here. A huge blessing!
Several great art supply stores, and beaches, yay.
The other side is the politicians who represent California are
hugely embarrassing , as well as the Hollywood worship.
Disney – nice for little kids, but who wants to stand in line for
one hour or more for each ride??
Maybe another version of Californians
than you hear about in the news
but most (90+%) are very hard-working,
(the good kind, lol) who penny-pinch
and live simply, like most do.

San Diego House, specialized in Coffees and teas
Since California was formerly Mexico, there are still many Mexican influences in buildings, art, etc.
On the inside of the back door, this specialty store in teas
and coffees. What you see is not even half of this nostalgic
store. Of course I could order on line, but you can’t smell
and taste it! The latter puts a smile on my face!
May be I can revisit it on one of my vacations🙂

Orange Poppies are more common than the
red or white. The poppy is California’s state flower

Palms and Cacti – undeniably native to this state.
Summer is here, most of the year!

You may not realize many Chinese live in the Los
Angeles and San Francisco area.
Also many were here for the railroad
and gold Rush. A while ago a youth pastor told,
I need an assistant who speaks Mandarin!
Just a simple row of Trees and a spectacular
sky makes me happy and smile.
