The locations featured in I Have People
I grew up in San Jose, California. Hence, the places Holly and Gabe go to on their ‘dates’ are real places that I frequented as a child. Authors write about what they know, and these are places that I know!
Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk

My hubby and I went to The Pinnacles on one of our memorable first dates! It really did look like something pre-historic. And we really did hike through caves filled with about a foot of water. It was quite the experience!

My hubby and I were stationed at Fort Ord in Monterey for a time. So I actually got to LIVE there. And our first daughter was born there, hence it holds a special place in my heart.
Monterey looks pretty with those cliffs overlooking the ocean. The Boardwalk looks cool too. I haven't been to any places like those. Neat. Now I'll be able to better visualize when I read this book. Thanks.ReplyDelete
You are welcome, Charissa! I love every one of these places. Each one brings back memories of my childhood. Hopefully, having learned a little more about these places, it will help bring the book to life as you read. Enjoy! Thanks for your comment! This is the end of the I Have People posts. Thanks for faithfully following along.Delete
Just finished the book, and am glad I got to see pictures of these places before I read it. Perfect!Delete
Cool. I love them all but have never had the pleasure of visiting them. I have been to the Los Angeles area. My hubby has been to San Jose and took lots of pics. He enjoyed his time there, even though it was a working/pleasure trip. Thanks for sharing the wonderful pics and Holly's and Gabe's adventures.ReplyDelete
I have a really hard time writing about places I haven't been to. It's so easy to write about what you know. I've been to all of these place umpteen times and I'd love to go again some day, but now I live in Texas and don't have the opportunity! Oh well, the memories are great!Delete
San Jose has changed a lot since I lived there. It's grown so much. Glad your hubby enjoyed his time there! Thanks for your comment!
