California is a very big state. To the south, we are two-hours away from the Mexican border. It is a three-hour drive to the Arizona border. Going north, it is a two-day drive to reach the Oregon border. To the west, we have our choice of beaches within an hours drive. Within those boundaries are a myriad of adventures. Living in Southern California, we have access to so many different locales and experiences. We like to take people to play in the snow in the morning, have lunch in Palm Springs, and roast marshmallows on the beach as the sun goes down. The Blogging from A – Z Challenge allows me to share some of my favorite destinations.
I write about California so many of the attractions and destinations have already been posted. With the challenge, I am trying to find new places that I have not previously shared. Knott's Berry Farm and many of the museums that are close to me are already there. I am in the process of converting old slides into photos and am finding a host of memories that I have forgotten.
My brother and I at Trees of Mystery in 1958. One of my converted slides.
Traveling creates those memories. Family history is about the times we share enjoying each other and the places we go. I hope that you will find places to create your own family memories. Come along with me.
