Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Loveland’s Midwestern flair (updated 12 p.m.)

Wisconsinesque.

Wisconsinesque.

Not sure if its the humidity, the greenness, the farm fields or the roadside businesses — cherry jam and pies, Granny’s Gluten-free goodies, Sunny Jim’s homemade taffy, a mead winery — but the 34 east coming into Loveland feels like Wisconsin or Minnesota to me. Then there were some enterprises with a more modern twist, like a groovy java stand, and a Ninja sword and knife emporium. Hmm..

Jim's Country Candies.

Campground ponies.

Campground ponies.

These horses live behind the campground. They were eating dinner last night and had a very mythical presence to them .. just something about the way the light was hitting.

Also here.. a huge midtown lake, and the Devil’s Backbone, a preserved open space area.
