Walking in Pasadena

Why go for a walk in Pasadena? Well, because the car is in the shop, of course.

I had to get to that great stretch of Walnut that is car repair shops and auto sound shops and tire shops. So I took ARTS bus south first. The ARTS bus doubles as a school bus:

Then I walked east on Villa (a nicer walk than Walnut), and here’s yesterday’s slice-o-life. Yes, graffiti on the ARTS bus sign, but I’m not going to post it. By the way, have you noticed all the nice new “street furniture” around town? Lots of new benches at bus stops. They are wrought iron–so I suppose they’ll be hot in the summer, but they’re fine now. Yes, I found graffiti on the arm of the new bench. No, I didn’t take a picture. I don’t want to hear from anonymous.

This is a personal blog. Expect a potpourri of stuff.

  1. I love those new benches.

    Funny, there’s a bus stop bench outside the laundromat on Washington & Hill that shouldn’t be there because the bus stop is about 1000 feet away. It’s a nice “resting bench” for peeps in the laundromat and that crazy homeless guy with a beard who is always talking to himself that is famous at the Hill & Washington bus stop corner.

  2. It’s just the New Yorker in me, but I try to walk around town as much as possible. It helps that I live right near the South Lake shopping district, so there’s actually somewhere to walk *to*.
