Our first morning of the road trip, we had breakfast at one of my favorite local diners, Latif's, followed by some antique and thrift shopping on Main Street.
This Disney's Haunted Mansions book was my first find and was a steal of a price. We came across a ton of Halloween decorations while on the trip as this was the week leading up to Halloween.
After spending a few hours on Main Street we decided to hit up the local thrift stores. We both ended scoring some awesome Hawaiian duds. I found this lovely 70's Hawaiian print dress (made in Hawaii) and Dave ended up scored a 50's Hawaiian shirt as well.
After thrifting we had lunch at my favorite local Chinese restaurant in town, The China Cafe. They have the best garlic chicken and I have never found anything else that even comes close to it. It was a must do while I was in my hometown. We relaxed at the hotel for a couple of hours and then headed to Minnie's in Modesto to have pre dinner Tiki drinks before heading to dinner to meet up with my local Central valley friends. Below are some of the Tikis outside Minnie's.
We had a great visit with Debbie and she even surprised me with these tiki salt and pepper shakers. Too cute!
We woke up the next morning, had breakfast at a very cute log cabin styled restaurant, followed by thrifting at the stores Redding had to offer. I had a couple great finds to be mentioned in the future blogs. Two more legs of the trip to go. Next blog will be our visit with my parents including a day spent in Medford, OR.
Till' Next Time,
