Where in the world has Big Boy been? Here’s a glimpse…

Over hill and dale, hither and yon, our home away from home, “the Big Boy” has rolled and rolled and rolled. This links to my facebook “Where in the world is Big Boy?” album. You have to look closely in some of the pics lol. (1) Rhonda Effron Brown.

A California Coastal Gem called Carpenteria

Who hasn’t heard of Santa Barbara and Ventura California? But Carpenteria was new to me and I am so glad for the introduction.  It came as a recommendation of a seasoned nomadic adventurer who was considering settling down there.  We spent the night on the side of a downtown street near the Amtrak station and took a morning stroll down to the ocean.DSC_0829

This is the little town of Carpenteria between Santa Barbara and Ventura just a short ways from LA

Here's the shady spot where we spent the night near a charming train station then strolled up a short way to the beach the next morning.

This is the short photo safari I took while on our stroll.
