ON TOUR: Bubblegum Alley (Day 3)

IMG_2950
Finally, continuing on with my West Coast Tour stories... Day 3 of traveling with my lady love, Amanda Shires, landed us in a little place called San Luis Obispo. Load in was mega early, so I had some time to wander around. I didn't have to take many steps to find this treasure, Bubble Gum Alley. It actually dates back quite a few decades, however it's exact beginnings are a little fuzzy.

Of course that amount of bubblegum in one location is rad, but then I noticed that people started leaving behind their memories through photos and handwritten notes and I was overwhelmed with excitement. I told Pearl (Amanda) and Caitlin that we had to leave our own notes!

Pearl totally made fun of me for leaving this note behind, but I didn't care, I was missing my fella. AND we were sending love notes to each other everyday while I was gone. See post here.

Have you ever been to Bubblegum Alley?
Have you ever been to an odd landmark like Bubblegum Alley?

Awwwww! =) This is awesome. They have a wall like this in Seattle too. Except it's more colorful...like, weird crazy non-fading gum from the crazy northern lands of rain!
