We recently adventured up to the Sacramento area where my (Hoot’s) dad lives and decided to head off to Old Town Sacramento because Annie and I had not been there together and neither of us had been there in at least a couple of decades.
It’s a really cool scene with rich history, the old cobblestone streets and wood planked sidewalks still cover the area, other than all the hip 2012 paraphernalia it really is like walking back in time. We walked around a good portion of the area and walked in a few shops. Evidently everyone’s sweet tooth was in high gear except mine because the candy store was the most popular store amongst Annie, my dad, and his wife Mary Ann.
What to do in Sacramento…???
If you know me at all, I was in search of beer, not candy…and that too was found on the Delta King, a big boat which is a hotel, a restaurant, and a bar. It was pretty cool hanging out in the bar and watching the river flow by, and as usual the people watching was a good time. We also found time to play with Siri on my 4S which was more fun than I thought it would be. Turns out she (Siri) doesn’t like to be messed with all that much, but it was entertaining nonetheless.
Other than Old Town we hung out at my dad’s house, witnessed a brief hail storm, went for a really cool walk up through their neighborhood, ate at Orchid Thai one night, and ate at Awful Annie’s for breakfast one morning. You’ll see pictures in the slideshow from all of this wackiness. Oh, and we also went to a winery while there but that’s for another blog post!
It was a fun visit as usual and it was fun to go adventure in someone else’s backyard! So this was our most recent adventure…what was YOURS?!?!
