Mortgage and Lending with Success Lending


 Oh my!  If you've ever been to Lindsay, CA or Porterville, CA or Pismo Beach, CA you probably have eaten at Coleman's.  In fact, my own parents met at Coleman's in Lindsay 51 years ago this June 2007.  They just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary!  I would like to recommend the Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich (just called the Steak Sandwich).  I get a little ranch and mustard on the side! The above photo was taken in Porterville, CA location 939 W Henderson Av (Ph 559-784-1639) (Unfortunately,both the Lindsay and Pismo location have closed)


Juicy Burger

Since we're talking good food, I have to mention one more......A tiny little building located on Main Street in Porterville, CA holds one of the BEST burgers around!  Go on in, grab a seat!  You won't be disappointed. (748 N Main St., Porterville Ph 559-784-5738)

A Typical Friday afternoon

(Above) A typical Friday afternoon in downtown Porterville, CA.  Downtown streets are wide and tree-lined. 


La Vintage Rue

La Vintage Rue located at 129 E Main Street (Ph559-781-6370) in Porterville is absolutely charming and loaded with wonderful painted furniture finds from over-sized French design clocks to antique daybeds, hutches, shelves, buffets and a quaint blue painted glider couch and much, much, more!  Ooo la la!

Mural in Porterville, CA

 The above mural was painted by artist and muralist Stephen Ball (Ph 559-539-0612) of Springville, CA  It is depicting the pioneer days of Porterville, ca.  The shot is only a portion of the building length mural.  Notice the detail of the tree, branches and the light streaming through the leaves.  This mural is east of Main Street directly across from the deposit window of the Bank of the Sierra.

Yellow Rose

My personal favorite floral shop in Porterville.  The Yellow Rose carries upscale fresh and silk arrangements that take your breath away!  I got my Christmas tree from them for 2006.  It came completely decorated with lights, ornaments, you name it!  It is stunning. (yep it's artificial; my first one..I LOVE it!) Located at 222 W Henderson Av, Porterville (559-781-5683)


 River Island Country Club

The River Island Country Club just outside Porterville includes a championship golf course and tennis courts.  River Island Country Club is a six-time host of the  San Joaquin Valley Amateur.  The golf course boasts the highest course and slope rating in Kings and Tulare Counties. (Ph 559-781-2917, Main Office)

Pioneer Man

 Not the best shot since I remained in the car (there was some traffic), I just felt that Pioneer Man was a fitting photo to include in this montage as it perfectly fits Porterville for me; a town of western, pioneer history looking to the future with hope, and working hard to get there.
