Vaca With The Fam

Jean Paul Sartre said, "Hell is Other People." "L'enfer, c'est les autres."
I say, "Hell is Other People's Vacation Photos." "L'enfer, c'est les photos de vacans des autres."
Welcome to HELL.


Bubble Gum Alley in San Luis Obispo, California.
This is a long alleyway completely covered with chewed gum.
It smells and looks as disgusting as you would imagine it would.

The Neptune Pool at Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California.
Oooh. So beautiful and serene.

This really is a Mystery. I still can't figure it out!

Buttercup Cakes in Santa Cruz. I had the Blood Orange Cupcake with Earl Grey Tea Frosting.

Doris Day owns this Hotel in Carmel, California.
Pets are Always Welcome.
I Love Doris Day.

A Sea Anemone at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

An Impressive Sand Castle at Venice Beach.

Home Again.
Pancake is VERY HAPPY that We Are Back.


  1. I like your version of hell! Especially when it's full of devil's food cupcakes. Now I'm hungry. Doris Day has always been a favourite.

    1. I would eat cupcakes in Hell with you any day, Melanie.

  2. What can I say, I agree with Sartre in general but your photos are really cool! Looks like you had a great time!
    the cupcakes look yummy and they seem to be, by the sounds of it!
    Pancake does indeed look very happy, just look at that dog smile :)

  3. Welcome back! We visited Monterey and Carmel too when we were in California. We enjoyed it those places. Pancake looks so cute!

    1. I've lived in California for 10 years and this is the first time I've visited the Central Coast. It's so beautiful, isn't it?

  4. Hi, many thanks for dropping by an leaving a note, glad you enjoyed the pride of stone lions, am always happy to see a new visitor leave a word in the comment box, on my most obscure little blog...

  5. I honestly love other people's travel photos.

  6. I LOVE this post and all of these pics...well maybe the bubblegum explanation, ahem
    I could do with a leap into the Serenity pool right now!
    That anemeni thing looks like a fab waste paper basket..

  7. An anemone waste paper basket. What a great idea!!

  8. You made me laugh with l'enfer c'est les photos de vacances des autres!
    I hope mine are ok!
    Love yours !
    I love Doris and happy to learn that she is still the co-owner of that hotel

    1. I really like your Vegas photos. Bring 'em on!

  9. Que Sera Sera - I loooove Doris Day! And I am a huge fan of the Central Coast since my college days in San Luis Obispo when I was introduced to bubblegum alley during Freshman Orientation week. Fun highlights Connie!

    1. Have you actually contributed to Bubblegum Alley?

  10. You and Sartre are funny. Love the final photo!
