La Mesa - Jewel of the Hills
In the past I have always been
with Cory and Britney when I come to
visit. This time however
I had a car, they had something to do
and I enjoyed my time alone.
We usually stay at Grandma's
condo on Del Mar but Grandma's
daughter is living there right now so
we decided to stay in La Mesa where
Cory and Brit live.
They got this amazing cot that is
a full size and a blow up mattress
that goes with it and I had my own
room. All was great.
Friday when Cory drove to the mountain
to have dinner and party with his friends
I stayed in La Mesa. It was my first
time to be able to get out and roam.
I love the quaint little historical town.
Cute shops and stores.
Cool places to eat.
And look what I found.
Did you see the sign on the bldg., under
the clock sign?
Yes, I went in.
Yes I bought three shirts.
Later while running around looking at
things in the car I found this.
No I did not go in.
Thinking if I could retire in Calif.
(never going to happen)
La Mesa would be where I would
want to be!
Plus I think I would fit right in
since everyone other car I see
is a Prius!
(I drive one).
I went in Goodwill, then I
walked down the street to a local

Stopped in a clothing thrift
store where I bought another
shirt. Then decided to drive around
a bit and check out homes.
Saw these while driving, lot
like the houses being built in
TN., tall and skinny.
Amazed at the lack of space but how
they use it all and have such cute
little sitting areas in the yard.
While driving I also noticed for
privacy they have a lot of privacy
fencing, some cute shorter fencing but
so many had some really cool
gates. I have gotten a lot of
doors and gate pics that I am
turning B&W to frame.
Will show some of my B&W pics
on things in another blog.
We all know how I love paintings
Fruit trees in Cory's yard.
Love this street with the
This afternoon I fly home. It seems
like my time here has flown by and
I am already sad about leaving.
Britney left for work about an
hour ago. Cory is still sleeping and
I am blogging.
Going to get up and throw some
clothes on and head for coffee.
Cory keeps talking about the house
him and Brit will have when
she graduates with her PhD and has
her practice, the one with the room for
mom! I love it.
