I am taking you to....

Today, I am taking you back to the past....

haha.... actually is this little shop at Sausalito, CA. There is a sign outside this shop "Welcome to the Past", I just love all the old poster in the shop....

My aunt and I stopped by Sausalito after Muir Wood National Monument on her visit last month...

this is one of my dream town when we decided to move out of New York City after my daughter Clare graduated from The Juilliard School a year ago, but it was extremely expensive, therefore, we ended up where we are now, in the desert!

I used to love the seafood pasta at Scoma's, but ever since I had food poisoning eating scallop, seafood pasta is out of my list now.

ahhhh....... just love the water.....

I think this little guy feels the same way like I do......

Hope you enjoy this while I am in LA!!!!
