Retail Center - 1600 Sacramento Avenue

This small strip center across the street from Emma's at 1600 Sacramento Avenue doesn't seem to have any vacancy problems.  From the left there is a Market & Deli, Cigarette Mart, Cash4Gold, Ray's Barber Shop and a Pizza Place. 

Remembering Luanne the Face Painter

Today I was remembering a Funderland outing with our friends the Linkers.  Their grandaughter Keira loves to have her face painted and she was a regular customer there.  Luanne was the very sweet women who painted the faces of many children and she passed away July 13, 2011.  Funderland has a memorial on their website for Luanne.

On the hunt!

This beautiful White Tailed Kite was perched high in our neighbor's tree this afternoon. Many of the North American kites have an eye color that is some shade of red. The White-tailed Kite has a similar hunting strategy and prey preference as the American Kestrel.

Mercado Loco comes to West Sacramento

We stopped in to see the new Mercado Loco on West Capitol Avenue yesterday.  The Mexican food store features a great meat market (carniceria), produce aisle and bakery (panaderia).
