Throwback Thursday: Yesterday was our Saturday!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Most Saturdays, other than a quick jaunt to the wine country early in the morning, we have a busy schedule and work through the afternoon. This includes attending a two hour discussion.

We had recently been told that in Lompoc* was a wonderful restaurant and bakery called Sissy's Uptown Cafe.  Lompoc is about an hour's drive from our home.  Nearby is Vanderberg Air Force base.

*Lompoc is a city in Santa Barbara County, California. Located on the Central Coast, Lompoc had a population of 42,434 in the 2010 census. Lompoc has been inhabited for thousands of years by the Chumash people, who called the area Lum Poc, meaning "stagnant waters" or "lagoon" in the local Purisimeño language.Wikipedia

The food was delicious, the atmosphere was fun and friendly.  It reminded us of small town places.  Just good food and good people.  

We chatted with two ladies who worked at the base, and they shared that when Space X had a launch, there were Teslas parked for blocks and blocks...(Space X is Elon Musk's company).

As we walked around the town we saw amazing murals on building walls.  There is even an art alley, pictured above.  I will be sharing more in another post.

It was so nice to take a whole day off.  We got home in time to make dinner.  Wishing everyone a wonderful Thursday!

A fantastic way to spend the afternoon Ron and Alexandra. While in Georgia several weeks ago, we enjoyed taking a drive to see where we could find authentic southern food and BBQ, we were successful!

I was sitting here thinking. . .I don't believe I've been to Lompoc before.  I've been just about every other place in California, but there.  I need to do something about that, one of these days.

Brian England you should come out next time Musk launches one of his rockets.  I am told the base commander likes Elon because they actually trained their people there on the procedure/. A

Peter den Boer the beauty of commercial real estate is that one does not work on weekends and we did not...When you are in the  creative side, the mind does not know Saturdays. A
