Formosa Cafe, West Hollywood CA

It's been awhile since my last post, and for my loyal viewers / readers, I do apologize. Part of my reason for being so bad on this website lately is that I was preparing for yesterday's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. I spent a couple of hours there yesterday signing books and talking to people about Route 66. Well, really, it was more like I was trying to push sales of the book, because few people by our booth seemed interested in buying, and few people were coming by our booth to begin with.

But since I was doing a book signing yesterday, I thought that putting up another image that is in the book would be a good idea, so here's a shot of the Formosa Cafe in West Hollywood. I've been in this place a couple of times and have to say it has a great, incredibly interesting vibe. Lots of good weird about it, if that makes sense. Worth a stop and a look, if time permits, in your travels along the Mother Road in Los Angeles County.

My 100th Post

I'm just going to tease you today by saying that this is my 100th post in this blog. No photo to provide, though, as I'm still feeling lazy.

Actually, I hope to get out today and spend a lot of time driving 66 in SoCal and shooting as many photos as I possibly can. So that is anything but lazy!

Extremely Un-Dry (Bodega Bay)

From the Owens Dry Lake to Bodega Bay and a separate road trip. This was taken in April 2004 when Julie and I drove up the coast from San Francisco to Tillamook, OR. From there inland to Portland.

The night before this was taken Julie and I stayed in the campground at Doran Regional Park. It is literally on the small isthmus that separates the Bay from the Pacific Ocean. It was mid-April. There were about two or three RV's and no other tents in the entire campground. I woke up freezing my a** off, but it was absolutely wonderful. A beautiful night, a beautiful morning, and a great day on the road.
