The Circle in old town Orange.

Old Town Orange is one of the few places in So Cal where the small town atmosphere can still be experienced. No need to drive hours away, Old Town Orange is only a few minutes away from anyone living in Orange County. With several antique shops, restaurants, and a beautiful center circular plaza, it’s the perfect place for a walk anytime of the year.

During the Christmas season, the area is adorned with a large Christmas tree, Santa and nativity scene. Plus they light up the center fountain with holiday lights. My wife and I love eating at the local restaurants, visiting the local coffee shop then taking a walk to the circle to view the lights. If you’re in the area, stop by and take a look!

With all the current rain here in Southern California, I can’t wait for it to dry up! When visiting the Spectrum, the only water I want to see is the one pouring out of the lions mouth!

Hope you like today’s photo, I took it while waiting for my wife to come out of a store. I’m not much into shopping so I tend to wait outside, along with the rest of the husbands. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Other than eating, watching a movie or ice skating, if your not into shopping, there’s not much for you.

Correction, I could have gone on the ferris wheel…no I’m scared of heights!

Sledding in Big Bear

According to ABC’s Channel 7 Live Mega Doppler 7000 HD Super Duper Spectacular Mega Monster weather forecast (sorry, one has to laugh at the name they give it), the current storm in southern California will bring snow to the local mountains including Big Bear.

Rain can't stop the sign man

Rain can’t stop the sign man from getting his job done!

It’s been raining constantly for the past two days and the forecast calls for at least five more days of this wet weather. For those living in Big Bear and the nearby mountains, you might get a white Christmas after all. For the rest of us in the LA/OC basin, it’s dangerous slick roads and slow drivers. I really hope we have some dry days coming up, summer can’t arrive soon enough for me.
