Old Sac Town

 

We’ve heard many people around here talking about Old Sac Town – an area in Sacramento with historic museums and shopping. So yesterday, on Scott’s day off, we decided to go check it out. But first, coffee.

Scott picked out the coffeeshop from a google search.

I can’t imagine what drew him to this coffeeshop…… -ha!

It was a cute little coffeeshop. I mean – when you have drinks named the ‘Keith Richards’ or the ‘Kerouac’ – how could we go wrong?!

Old Sac Town was quaint, but I think our expectations were a little different so we ended up a little disappointed. But it’s always fun exploring together so we had fun.

The Tower Bridge in downtown Sacramento is a vertical lift bridge over the Sacramento River. It’s a striking part of the Sacramento skyline.

And how about staying in a hotel on the river??

It was interesting to see the old buildings along the riverfront.

The below picture: Scott thought it looked like a good juxtaposition. So when Scott throws around the word ‘juxtaposition’, you take the picture! šŸ™‚

We expected cute antique shops, etc. When we lived in Omaha, we were true fans of Old Market which is a fantastic place to shop. Lots of variety and independent shops. Unfortunately though, Old Sac Town appeared to be a lot of tourist shops with souvenir-type gifts, t-shirts, and tchotkes.

Lots of restaurants and Sacramento tshirts. -ha.

But any time with Scott, is time laughing and having fun. So all’s good.

It’s fun being a naive tourist in your own new city. I take a lot of those pictures you take as you zoom by in the car and the images never turn out that great. You know those? Yeah. Those.

Right now in California, the flowering trees are truly gorgeous and getting ready to explode!

Look at all those buds ready to bloom. It makes me want to come back to this very spot in a few weeks. It must be an overwhelmingly beautiful tree.

It’s nice to see the foothills and mountains now that they are snow-capped. They mostly look like clouds in the distance. Occasionally you see cars driving around town, covered in snow and you know they’ve come down from the mountain area.

I’m not sure when I’m going to get used to seeing weed talked about so freely here in California – all legal.

It was a fun day doing a bit more exploring around our new state.
