Un Fortuna

Poor La Fortuna. Always getting hit.

Wish the lame ass taggers would decide if 32K or 35C is better so they would stop crossing out each others writings.

Love the light changes during the last couple hours of sunlight.

Pictures are from the one week of sunny days this winter.

Second Look

Look past the ugly scrawled tag.

Underneath you'll see something beautiful.

Wish I could have got the picture earlier.

The weather will hit close to the 80's this weekend so get out and play. Shake off the rain and cold.

These guys do it right on the backside of Montecito Heights. Grilling up sweet smelling meat. Lots of tecates. Loud ranchera music. Old school announcer who calls the whole game.

And they're playing real baseball, not softball.

Adopt Lilly

Met this dog the other day when I was out around Flattop. I was scared at first when a German Shepard started to track me out there until she came over and lowered her head to get some pets. I threw a couple sticks for her to chase, she hung around me for a bit longer, then she vanished around the bend.

Now I see this flyer from the Lacey Street Shelter. That's the same dog!!!

Hope someone adopts her soon. Good luck Lilly!!!

Found a very rare waterfall in the hills of Montecito Heights the other day.

Here today, gone tomorrow.

Under an old tree along the Arroyo is where you'll find the escaped golf carts hanging out.

Chillin'. Smokin'. Relaxin'.

Occasionally, one cart will get brave and try to go out alone and cross the river. It only ends up in a mossy grave.

Party Place

Hey look! A new store is coming to town.

I noticed the small red heart on the Ave 43 street sign declaring "Montecito Heights Party Place coming soon!" Turned the corner and then saw the temporary cardboard signs on the storefront.

Bummer to all that wanted a local coffee store. But it can't be worse than the last renter who had a barely open store full of random clothes right?
