Julian, Dinner and a Movie

On Thursday we drove to Julian, California with Dave & Karen. We had never been that far down that particular highway and the scenery was beautiful with both mountains and open prairie. 



Of course, you don't go to Julian without stopping for a Julian Pie. They have a viewing glass so that you can watch as they make the pies but they had already finished for the day when we arrived. The pies are made fresh every morning.




They have a vast variety of pie options and when I went to the washroom I saw a Help Wanted sign for a 'peeler' so you know those pies are truly 'homemade'.

Don's Market for groceries also next door

They sell all kinds of things from decorative items to tea, jams and soap

On Friday, we determined to 'take the day off', Brad couldn't sit still but I managed to just relax for most of the day. Karen came over and she and I played a couple games of Crib, everyone has been graciously helping me learn the game. We tied over 2 games and hope to break the tie at some point over the weekend.


Around 5pm Brad decided we should go for dinner and a movie so we ran off to Temecula and stopped at Blaze pizza. Another place that you pick your toppings in Subway style and they cook it for you on a fire. Only takes a couple of minutes and your order is ready.



After pizza we went to see The Post and quite enjoyed it. We both love Tom Hanks and I like Meryl Streep, the movie is done well and the story line of course, is very interesting to Political/History buffs like us. I especially enjoy the intricacies of events that took place during my lifetime or close to it. Comparing 'background' details to what 'we' are told at the time is fascinating to me, and learning the who's who of those details is always enlightening. Learning details that I never would have know otherwise is always a bonus.
