Not Pumping Iron

Driving around the hills of Brea, in northern Orange County, you’ll find countless old, rusty pumps still going strong. The city of Brea, meaning “tar” in Spanish, was apparently quite the oil town. Founded in 1917, the city grew up as a place for the oil workers to live. The hills around Brea are still dotted with pumps. Today’s Foto Fix features one of the pumps on Brea Canyon Road. I always thought these pumps resembled horses out in the field, leaning down for a bite of grass. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)Not Pumping Iron

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
