Where the 25 and 156 Meet

One of the benefits of roadways going through once-upon-a-time orchards, grazing lands, and vegetable fields is this: We finally get to see what we couldn't before.

That's right. Any chance I get, I'll get my little camera out and snap a photo—even out car windows and, as you know, through dirty windshields. Not when I'm driving, of course. This glimpse was taken as the husband and I were heading north on the Bolsa, aka 25.

Maggiora Brothers Drilling, Inc. is a local business that drills water wells and installs water pumps. I didn't know it existed until yesterday. The company has been around for over 40 years. Check out its Web site. The business is very interesting, even if wells are things you don't need.

An Appealing Glance

Metropolis—the city where Clark Kent, aka Superman, lives.

That's what comes to my mind when I see the Vault sign. I don't know why. Maybe it's the sophisticated look of the V.

For that manner, discounting the sign, downtown looks rather glamorous from this angle. Don't you think?

Big City Parking

Who has parked in the free parking garage on Fourth Street because they couldn't find parking near let's say the library? Wells Fargo? Paines? the farmers market on Wednesdays?

Did you know you get a good view of downtown from the elevator?

Did it really cost the city several million dollars to build it? 

Have you ever thought of going up and down the garage stairs for exercise? The husband and I did it first time yesterday.

Loooking Out of San Benito Bene

The husband and I finally checked out the new store, San Benito Bene, last week. Kathina, the owner, is selling a variety of locally made products. The ones that stick in my mind are the Marich chocolates, orchids from Watsonville, and the goat milk products from Bell Hill. I like knowing that I can conveniently purchase the chocolates downtown.

San Benito Bene is located at 615 San Benito Street. Kathina says that she has plans to set up a station where you can make-your-own gift basket of local goodies. How cool is that! The shop is open Monday through Saturday. Stop in the next time you're downtown.

Nope, FTC, I wasn't paid to write about San Benito Bene. I just like to let people know that there is a central place in Hollister  (finally!) where we can find locally made products.  It's about time.
