My mom grew up in Rockford, IL. Her brother lived there for many years after she had moved away. We would often go to visit him and go to fun places around town. I remember several times my uncle commenting, 'I have never even gone to these places until now'.
Isn't it sad that the things in our own backyards we often never see?
Now living in Southern California there is a lot to do, and also a lot of money to spend to do most of those things. The trick is finding the free things.
While my parents were here, we did just that.
In Escondido this is a Park called Queen Califia's Magical Circle Garden. It is a giant sculpture that was built and left for the children of a city by a French artist, who lived the last years of her life in Southern California. There is a maze, and lots of giant sculptures it was a lot of fun, and a lot of fun being there with my camera of course.
