Storefront sign: PIZZA BOBA.

Found this great combination in Santa Barbara last week. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to stop there.

I didn’t even have time to get out the camera with an actual zoom, and had to make do with the phone.


A Snorlax from Pokemon Go superimposed on the road in front of a giant free-standing LAX sign.

The kid watched the Snorlax episode of the original Pokémon cartoon around the same time I managed to catch one in Pokémon Go, and we had a conversation about text-to-speech on GPS navigation getting tripped up and telling me to take an exit “toward Lax Airport.”

Oh, and something I didn’t mention when I posted this on Pixelfed earlier: The sign is a Pokémon Go gym. So of course I claimed it!

For about an hour. 🤷‍♂️
