A person we know and her husband-to-be had decided to try to buy a repossessed (and thus, they thought, affordable) house in Madera. But they soon found their dream would remain just that.
A mostly humorous, sometimes serious, reflection on life in Madera, California, by the publisher of The Madera Tribune.
Wednesday night, two Madera tourists happened to find themselves staying in Redding at the Gaia Hotel, and it was explained to them by a waitress Thursday morning that the Gaia is the world’s greenest hotel.
Whew! It’s good to be back in Madera after nearly two weeks traipsing around Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. People ask whether we had a good time, and the answer is:
REDDING — Tuesday night, as two tourists from Madera were walking back to their hotel room from the Woodside Grill, they looked at the moon and were surprised to see that it was red.
ON THE OREGON COAST — There are reminders everywhere of what will happen, and yet people keep coming here, living here, in complete denial that horror, death and destruction are just half an hour away.
LA CONNER, Wash. — This town, nestled beside the Swinomish Channel, was named after a woman, so it isn’t surprising it has many female qualities. First, it is exceptionally beautiful.
ANACORTES, Wash. — This city on Fidalgo Island, facing Puget Sound, and Madera have a lot in common. Both came into being in frontier territory in the late 1870s.
