Julian California

This is a beautiful town, quaint, picturesque and friendly.  There are so many things to do in this wonderful town that you can easily spend a leisurely, two or three days here.

This is not a theme park.  This is Americana at its best.  A former gold mining town, a small shops and winery town, an award winning restaurants and niches town, a place to relax for a few days town.  There are no big chain stores or restaurants, no large attractions, no rides, no thrills, just hikes and bikes and friendliness and llamas and B&B’s and wineries with tastings and even a brewery (hard to find it though, LOL-needs more signage or at least one good sign) and shops and bakeries and history out the wazoo and it is a comfortable atmosphere that is hard to find.

We went to Vulcan Mountain Winery, Wikiup B&B with llamas (so cute), Nickel Beer Company, Apple Alley Bakery (small but tasty), Soups and Such restaurant which has expanded and many pleasant shops just nosing around and walking the streets.  Having been many times before (about once a year over the past 12 years) it is hard to believe that we can keep coming back and still find it so enjoyable.  Just soak up the hominess and relax and find the friendliness everywhere. 

We happened to be there on Halloween and there were children going from shop to shop tricker treating and collecting candy and wonderful exclamations on their costumes; “so cute”, “you are scary” and a nice family vibe to it all.

The batteries are now recharged and we are refreshed and ready to the next week.

<title>David Alan Binder – Write Coach Claire Cameron, author of The Bear

This book resonated with me due to my love of the outdoors and the seven years of being Assistant Scout Master and camping all over the United States and my encounters with wildlife and the adventures.  The story is very real and that realism propels it forward with such energy.  Please read the article on Claire Cameron, Dear Writers, and find out for yourself the warmth and situational charm of placing stories in very real and emotional environments.

You will find out that the possibilities are endless when you draw upon your life and own adventures or misadventures and it conveys to your readers that realism and those possibilities in their own lives.

Claire is from Canada and ease of international access to this and any other author is astounding in the age of the internet.
