This week the link is open on Sunday April 22 to Wednesday April 25 till 7 pm, Pacific time.
(Don’t pay attention to the end date of the linky – I will have changed it by then – -the dates above are the good ones!)
Oh boy, this is the most up and down spring I have ever experienced. Last Tuesday when I was replying to your contributions, it began to snow!!
In contrast, your steady weekly linkups of your season are so appreciated!
Love that you share with everyone how things are on your side, and visit, seeing how others live. We have a very international company of people here:):)
Since this week are two special days: earth day and Anzac Day (Australia),
I share one of my special days , and post some images of the 4 hours drive West to Santa Barbara while living in the Los Angeles suburbs. Santa Barbara is a college town, close to the picturesque town of Solvang, with all kinds of Danish bakeries, houses, etc.
When I started graduate work, I remember that Santa Barbara did not a good reputation among my studious friends. “Never go there,” they told me, “it’s a party town – they never study!” From looking at the very busy patios of the restaurants, full of college age people, my study friends might have had a point there.
For you who do not live in the USA, the 4th of July is probably the busiest national holiday (Independence Day) after Christmas and Thanksgiving – all kinds of parades, games, and at its close fireworks at night.
When traffic on the fourth in San Diego became too stressful to handle (talking about 20 min. or longer to find a parking place!) we changed to spending it in Santa Barbara or Solvang (not the one in Denmark, but in California!).
The fog hangs till noon over the hills, even in the summer.
The contrasts are really this strong here.
Even though the sky is not clear, the coast of California is a breath of fresh air.
People are happy to be out of the city:)
Closer to Santa Barbara, the landscape becomes more hilly. Many vineyards and orchards
and other trees here.
A sleepy little town Santa Inez ten minutes before entering Santa Barbara.
This is the outside of a furniture store. Maye a little too casual?
What do you think?
Wherever you are and whatever your weather looks like,
remember when it’s bad: this too shall pass!!
