If it seems like I’ve been a little more scarce than usual, it’s because I’ve been over in Redding hanging with The Redneck and the boys. The Dirt Faced Okie kids have the week off for Spring break. We’ve been having fun.
1. Driving Highway 299
I love that drive. It’s so pretty.
2. Lim’s Cafe
With Mill’s Brother in the background and fantastic Egg Foo Yung, I adored this place. It’s been in Redding for fifty-one years and it’s a landmark.
3. Whiskeytown Lake
A gorgeous man made lake.
4. Castle Crags
We’re going to hike to the top (I hope) today. 2.7 miles up and 2.7 miles down. Whew.
5. Hanging with The Redneck
We’ve been spending some time with him every night. I really miss that.
6. Watching “The Deadliest Catch” with the whole family
Tuesday night was the premiere of Season Five. WOOOOOT!!!
7. The Turtle Bay Museum
That place ROCKS!!!!
8. Caldwell Park
A skate park, basketball hoops, cool playgrounds and a fish ladder all in one place. Awesome.
9. The Pizza Factory
In Shasta Lake City (formerly Central Valley). It was filled with hunting pictures, fishing trophies and had FOX news on a big screen. Oh, and the pizza was TO DIE FOR!!!
10. The Turtle Bay Cafe
Which had a yummy chicken fajita wrap for me. Mmmmmmm.
11. The Sundial Bridge
Absolutely stunning AND it’s a real sundial. Very, very cool
12. The Trinity River
Which meets the Sacramento River for a gorgeous combination.
13. My friend Cathy
Who I haven’t seen in a couple of years. Man, I missed her.
