Favorite thing: Many buildings of Pasadena, especially in the Old Pasadena area, are not just slaps of brick put together or just ordinarily assembled. They stand out as edificial art. Pictured is a lovely adorned building with shrubbery and stained glass. This is the top of a yoga studio.
Favorite thing: There are a number of Public Parking structures in and around Old Town Pasadena. Be aware - they do not all charge the same price for parking! Anywhere from free to $6 a pop. This one on Delacey I like because the first 90 minutes is free. Then the most you pay is $2. Just south of Colorado, west of Fair Oaks next to Twin Palms restaurant and across fromthe Union Cattle restaurant.
Favorite thing: OK, it's a simple thing really but worth mentioning. Throughout the city are tall, elegant, colorful, and truly unique trees, like the one pictured here at Memorial Park. They are well protected,as they are lush and plentiful.
Here I am posing with a fan of the Brazilian soccer team at the 1994 World Cup Finals. Don't recall who won but it must have been the Brazilians because this fan was happy.
I didn't pay attention to the score because I didn't know the game. Also, the antics of the crowd was more entertaining than the players on the field.
By the way, those glasses I'm wearing were in fashion back then.
Fondest memory: Dog shop. If you live in a city or if you travel a lot, I guess you are familiar with shops meanted for dogs. It was for the 1st time in my life I've seen something like that, so it impressed me pretty much. There is selled everything what dog can have. Who buys cakes for dogs?!? By the way, some of them looked much better that cakes for people. Lol! Dog suits, pictures,… Where it's located? I wish I knew. Somewhee in Old Pasadena, nearby centre.
Memorial Park is conveniently located near the well beaten path of Old Pasadena and just steps from the Metro Gold Line stop named after the park itself. Stretching from Holly and Walnut St along Raymond Ave.
The 5+ acre park features a big, modern playground for the kids, ample lawn space, cement path for running and the Levitt Pavilion , a summertime venue for free city concerts and performances. Park capacity reaches its peak when these events occur.
Here I loved to walk doggies and chill out before taking on Old Pas.
Memorial Park 85 Holly St.
Favorite thing: These beautiful trees are called jacarandas-thanks to Keida84 for that info. Ooooh, the pretty colors. Enjoy!
Favorite thing: I didn't know that Colorado Blvd is part of the famous Route 66. The things you learn, just by going there.
Favorite thing: This Catholic Church building, just off Old Pasadena, caught my eye. A pretty building, dontcha think?
Favorite thing: Park early at the Rose Bowl. The golf course was too wet to park on, so they filled the access road, row by row. It was fun waiting to get out after the game ;-)
