Who Knew?

  Last weekend my hubby and I took our kids and my mother-in-law to Oroville, CA. Not our usual stomping grounds, although my husband works there. We decided to go because there was the California State Fiddle and Picking contest going on and we thought the kids would get a kick out of it.  The contest was fun, but we didn't stay long.
  The day ended up being so much fun and quite unexpected. We went out to lunch and had Chinese food at a restaurant called Tong Fong Low. Super tasty and super reasonable. I totally recommend it.
 On our way back to Chico, we took a detour and ended up at a Chinese Temple. (total coincidence). We decided to go in and take a tour (self led, the place is pretty humble). It was so beautiful and full of amazing tapestries and furniture. It was so tranquil with the rain and courtyard.

The Temple still used today for prayer and meditation.
 I highly recommend taking a trip out to Oroville to dine, thrift shop and meditate. The city is odd, full of beautiful old homes and wandering speed freaks. But it does have it's redeeming qualities. You just might not expect them.
