Work has been put off due to a typhoon, more like a heavy rain, and so I get the extra time to catch up and write a post. 😀
Whenever I go take other people to places I’ve been to in California, I’m always gravitated towards touring them to Griffith Park. It’s an hour and a tad more minutes from Ventura. It’s building is cool-looking. It’s kids appropiate. It has the Hollywood sign. You get to see LA’s cityscape from the top. It has one of the best spots to see the golden California Sun. To top it all off, it’s free!
We spotted an astronomer who was preparing his telescope out in the middle of the park’s ground. He was fixing to locate Jupiter. And we got the chance to see it up close through athe telescope. He even said that it is visible with the naked eye. Problem is, you just need an expert who know where and when this grand planet is going to be at.
Jupiter is 2.5 larger than the rest of the planets combined. It’s circumference is 11 times bigger than the Earth. That’d be a lot lot lot of places to travel to if it was livable. 😀
Can you stomach this side trip?
When I was driving back from up North down to Ventura, I was in a sticky situation of whether to stop here or not.
Somewhere near San Luis Obispo’s Mission is … dum dum dum … Bubblegum Alley. That’s right! Two walls filled with sticky and icky bubblegums glued to it. The amount of rain we have here today amounts to nothing compared to all the saliva grossly welded into those walls.
More disgustingly so is how people stick other more repulsive, ghastly stuffs to it.
PARENTAL GUIDANCE is advised.
Did you see it? A real yucky and ew moment.
That’s it for the first Throwback Thursday and the second Side Trip post. I’ll leave you with this FB throwback picture.
The boy ended up to be a stud afterall. 😆
102. Let me introduce to you magiecrystal, a true travel writer. Though her hometown is San Francisco, she goes out travelling to different parts of the globe. Check out her seasoned explorations from the sweltering heat of Asian countries to the cold winter in Paris. Her Spain posts are my favorites, but you got to see her California post Yosemite, the Girl Next Door.
