4th of July Weekend Roundup

20140706_151608

 

I hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July holiday weekend and that you were able to spend it with the ones you love.  I manage to spend it recovering from Strep Throat alongside my wonderful husband who was also struck down with the malaise.  So, antibiotics in hand and our alarms set to go off every six hours we managed to get out an about this weekend.

We started in San Marcos, California at a little Farmer’s Market and Art Show.   It was really quite a small affair but enjoyable nonetheless.  There was a car show as well and we made our way through the market and ended up in front of this beauty.

I know next to nothing about cars but the beautiful red paint on this car caught my attention.  We met Woody Wood whose auto shop assisted the owner in putting the engine together.  We had a nice chat with Woody who proceeded to tell us about his experience with cars and being a local high school auto shop teacher.  The best part was when he decided to show us pictures of his cars.  He showed us actual photographs that he pulled from his wallet, the photos were part of a series of photos he kept in his wallet, old school, the way people used to carry their photographs.  No phone pics but real, hold in your hand, wrinkled and bent at the corners photos. I liked Woody Wood and we will be going out to see him race his car at the local races soon. www.baronadrags.com

Next we took a short ride to the town of Ramona, California.  We’ve been wanting to explore more of San Diego and this seemed like a good way to start, so of to Ramona we went.

Ramona is a small town that at one point in its history was known as “The Turkey Capital of the World”. www.ramonachamber.com Now, it is known for its beautiful Thoroughbred horses.  You can see by the mural above that horses are kind of a big deal.

They also have many antique stores of which we visited one. It was full of beautiful horse theme antiques. My daughter loves horses and this will be the perfect place to visit with her. The store had a lovely display out front for fourth of july.

I also did my usual routine of looking for yarn stores and though I did not find any to visit I did find that there is an Alpaca Farm in Ramona.  They dye their own yarn! Check out, www.ldvalpacas.com

I would have liked to have done more but I was happy to get out and enjoy a little local exploration.
