Pinecrest at 50, Come Celebrate!

Call for Photos!

Pinecrest to be included in History of Julian film project.
Pincecrest member and late blooming filmmaker, Teri Brewer,  is working on a short film focusing on the Cuyamacas and San Diego back country and how the cultural landscape and local archaeology there has been shaped by fire.  As part of this film, which is actually a pilot for a longer film project, she would like to include a little bit of information on Pinecrest and its history with fires and how it came through. She has some photos of  Pinecrest today of course, but wonders whether there are any photographs or video of Pinecrest just after fire came through? If anyone has digital photos of this nature that Teri could use she would very much appreciate it. In order for them to be used in the pilot film, however, she would need to get digital images via email by September 10. But if that deadline passes and you have some good photos, please send them along any way as she could still use these for the master project. 

Photos can be sent to Teri at goby@mac.com.

Trends in Trailers:

Vintage Trailers + Airstreams for your Wedding

I love the idea of renting a vintage trailer or airstream to serve your food or sweets for your wedding. These could also be perfect for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner. So cute, yummy, and they will be the talk of the night! One of my favorites is Enjoy Cupcakes where guests will enjoy treats served out of an adorable restored vintage Shasta trailer. Serving the entire Santa Ynez Valley & Santa Barbara County and inspired by wine country, their cupcake flavors include some totally inventive flavors like: Vanilla Mascarpone Chardonnay, Caramel Pinot, Cherry Apple Chardonnay, Tangerine Mint Mimosa, and Cherry Vanilla Merlot to name a few…

Or how about a Sno Cone treat? Perfect for a summer backyard wedding, Fresher Than Fresh Sno Cones is located in Kansas City and are 100% natural, made with fresh ingredients – organic whenever possible. Served out of a renovated 1957 Shasta trailer, some of their unique flavors are lemon prickly pear, ginger rose, lime mint, watermelon basil, and green tea pear to name a few. Yum!

A change of scenery. Back to nature.

According to recent news stories, Cal Trans will be removing the three crosses that are located across the road from the Pinecrest entrance at the scenic overlook. Due to the fact that no private structures are allowed on public thruways, these long standing icons will be relocated to another hillside on private property. No information was given as to the date of the removal. Reaction is expected to be mixed.
