Nice weekend


Saturday I did a little shopping in Santa Maria. My list of places to go was too long but I got to most of it. Sunday Colleen and I ran away from home...actually she was working and I tagged along.....She was doing gingerbread delivery for the Solvang Bakery. We made the exchange in King City and took off on a lark to find the small town of Lockwood. We went west off 101 even though there was no sign to confirm we were going the right way....after quite a drive we started seeing a few ranches. passed one car and then there it was ....Lockwood! We went to a diner connected to a small market and had a really good burger and real fries. We made a stop at San Miguel Mission.
This one is one of my favorites. You feel like you know what it would have been like to have been there when the Spaniards were there. There was a band from Oaxaca setting up for an Our Lady of Guadalupe celebration...wish we could have heard them. Hit a couple stores in Paso Robles and got home right after dark. Great weekend.

My family lived in Paso when i was a kid and we attended midnight mass before Christmas at the San Miguel Mission. i spent the entire time looking at all the art and symbols, day (night) dreaming.brings back lovely memories.
