CAMBRIA CALIFORNIA - SCARECROW

Several years ago I took this while visiting the central coast and the small town of Cambria which is near San Simeon - on the coast.  They dress up the whole town with scarecrows. I wouldn't mind visiting there again on my trip in November

Tomorrow, typically we would go to Big Bear for their halloween celebration - but with the winds and such - not sure if it wil be happening.

Here's one of the scarecrows from Cambria.  He looks like a nice guy.

Hoy nos brinda un simpática imagen, que parece saludar al que pasa.

Hace tiempo que no veo espantapájaros.

Besos

Were you here in October or were the scarecrows still hanging around in November? I haven't been to Cambria for way over a year, so, yeah, we should do that! The scarecrows are always very welcoming!

I love scarecrows, he does look swish!

There are lots of places here in the UK that have scarecrow festivals but I've never been to one yet. The biggest is in Kettlewell & there are bus trips to it every summer. http://www.kettlewellscarecrowfestival.co.uk/gallery.php
Maybe I'll get there next year & get some photos.

This particular scarecrow is very elegant and stylish. It looks that tomorrow you would have a great time at Big Bear. I didn't do something special for Halloween this year.

Hi Kaya - ...yes he is elegant. I think we've opted to forego Halloween in Big Bear and instead go down the mountain to REdlands and get some shopping done, a good walk in, where it will be warmer ..and beautiful to walk through the neighborhoods there and then back home. Big Bear will be cold - not into that yet. It's cold enough here.

What a fabulous scarecrow...he looks much too kind and gentle to scare away any crows though!😉
I certainly wouldn't mind having him on my doorstep! 😊😊

Happy Halloween 🎃🍁🕸 xxx

haha, your comment gave me a laugh Ygraine - he does seem like a handsome kind guy.

What a cute theme for a whole town. I hope you get to go back there this month.

Sandy said...

So much green! I don't think I have ever seen such a dapper scarecrow.

sandy said...
