Husband and I had a wonderful day today!
We decided to have an adventure and take really long bike ride to some place new. We choose the Monterey Park Cherry Blossom Festival
We started on the train and went all the way out to South Pasadena, hopping off at the Mission street Station where we were greeted by this guy:
We bike about 6 miles from there through Alhambra
to Monterey Park
. Well - that's 6 miles according to our bike computers.
The festival was kind of a flop and did have nearly as much cultural stuff to do. Most of the booths were the kind of thing you regularly see at local city festivals with a few exceptions. The anime was scarce most of the booths had t-shirts and food.
The long ride was very enjoyable and Husband got some photos along the way. I got an image of a flower I hadn't seen before.
One of the biggest surprises was stopping at Taco Bell and actually really enjoying the meal. I love Taco Bell for fast food but the stores around my neighborhood aren't very good. It mostly has to do with the food preparation - it's sloppy, sauce every where, burritos falling apart, etc... Not at this store.
See - nice and neat!
I know I'm weird but Taco Bell got me through college and I have a really soft spot in my heart for the cheesy mexican food.
