    Thank you all the volunteers who organized the BBQ in this beautiful setting under magnificent old trees on the grounds of the Vista Historical Society Museum . It was a real “Normam Rockwell” style kind of day. Great music, delicious food, and pure family fun.

    The museum itself is packed with an amazing number of interesting items and furnishings, and a current exhibit of photography by children from the Vista Academy of Visual and Performing Arts. It will be there til Sept. 19 when the museum hosts it’s “all you can eat” Ice Cream Social fundraiser. For $5, I’m going to find out just how much ice cream I can actually consume!
