Lost and Found

My mom was here visiting from Denver, CO this past week so we took a trip up to Julian, CA. .. for those curious minds Julian, CA is located just east of San Diego in the Cuyamaca Mountains.

This is a beautiful, quaint mountain town which has lots to offer and the best apple pie you'll ever sink your teeth into... now unexpectedly on this glorious winter day while we casually strolled through town we came upon this chilly scene. The sun was shining, the air was a crisp 25 degrees.

Right there before our eyes, laid out on the rocks, dirt and fall leaves- was teddy. My immediate thought was "Oh, my!" how could anyone... *gulp*... leave behind this teddy and in this condition. Next thought, "CSI" Julian".
How did this teddy meet such a demise? eye missing, arm ravaged.

I looked around for any immediate suspects but it was apparent he had been here for some time. I knew what I had to do next and that was to snap a photo of him so that he could live on in our spirit. I contemplated picking him up, but then thought what if the perpetrator had second thoughts and decided to come back and rescue him. Give him new life?

We continued our stroll,snapping more pics along the way and then stopped for a nice warm meal in another one of my favorite places
"Romano's Dodge House"

I guess this picture summed up how I was feeling on this cold, wintry day.
A bit lost and a little found.

Hope your holidays were grand and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Poor teddy!!!! So cold up there! I think I have to wait until summer to head up there....25 is well below my 60 degress threshold.
