Let's pause the Halloween love for a moment.
We took a trip out to Poway, CA.
Elevation: 515 feet
Proximity to the ocean: about 35 miles inland
We were told about Poway from friends out here and heard about the great schools, avocado and citrus farms, etc. What we didn't hear was how cute Old Poway Park is.....where this Train Song Festival was held.
We quickly booked tickets for the train and Jack prepared himself for the fun ahead.
The joy.......the joy! Makes me happy to see.
Cute punks waved to everyone.
This was the Train SONG festival......which means there were songs about trains piping in from every direction. I didn't realize the amount of music dedicated to railroad life.
Darling little town......do you see the kitty?
Get a good look, Jackie.
Stopped in The Hamburger Factory for a late breakfast.
Found these two rockers for sale outside. They must have known we were coming. Trains and kitties!
We visited the one-room school house. (Carter's being the teacher here.)
There were lots of town beauties strutting around in their pageant dresses. Lainey was in princess heaven. And, even got to wear a crown!
We visited a Blacksmith Shoppe and the kids were fascinated with the fire.
Everything in this park is picture perfect.
We found the children's area and the little ones were apprehensive to get tattoos. So, Carter took one for the team and let the beautiful girl apply his.
Every time we heard or saw it......."Train! Train! Train!" Never got old.
Toured a farm house from the early 1900s.
Jack walked in, heard 30 seconds of the history lesson and then screamed, "Alright. Wet's get out of here!" Nice. I tucked $5 in the donation bin and we took off.
Loved it. Great little town. Super nice people. We'll be back!
Enjoyed the drive to and from.......so nice being in the mountains again.
Now, on to today.......Pa is in town......a harbor cruise and dinner by the sea is in our future. Later!
