Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (CFFC): Week of 22 June

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is:

Ground: sand, dirt, paths, walks, trails, roads

Self woke up this morning in beautiful, calming Paso Robles and decided to explore the paths winding around the gardens of her Inn. It’s in a great location: right in the heart of downtown Paso Robles. Across the street is a public park. This morning, there was a wee farmers market and even though self was not in the least bit hungry, she couldn’t resist buying a few cookies after she found out they were mango-oatmeal cookies.

The footbridge crosses a narrow stream filled with some fat carp.

There is a short “reflexology path.” She would love to walk barefoot along the stones!

A sign explains what a reflexology path is:

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.

White or Silver: Life in Colour, June Challenge

Self loves this photo challenge. It’s hosted by Jude on the blog Travel Words.

For today’s post, self returns to the always-amazing Sacramento, a city who she visited in April, just in time for the re-opening of the Crocker Museum.

Self stayed in a re-furbished building that had once been the site of a Family Laundry, on 16th Street (There’s a neon sign hanging outside the building with these very words).

Here’s the kitchen:

And here was the karate school, directly across the street:

The lobby of the Crocker is all white and silver:

That was self’s first post-pandemic road trip. Sacramento will always have a special place in her heart. She stayed there for several weeks, the summer of 2017, in the sweetest little in-law unit which her Airbnb hosts had built themselves. (Alas, the hosts seem to have taken their property off Airbnb. She went searching for it, a few weeks ago.)

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe,
