Photo Friday: Wherever You Go, There You Are

You might remember, last week I posted a photo tour of my book, Whirlwind, at My Love Affair With Books. One picture I didn’t include is a shot of one of the dorms on the Cal Poly campus (the inspiration for Santa Lucia Polythechnic):

A Red Brick Dorm

The funny thing? This ISN’T Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo! This dorm, identical to the ones at the center of Cal Poly’s campus, is found on the San Jose State campus. And I’ve seen the same buildings on the Pomona campus as well.

Do you live near a college campus? Do you have buildings like these? I wonder how many of them there are out there…

BTW, the title of this post is a quote from an old movie. 5 points if you know which one! Happy Friday!

Photo Friday: The Golden State

Today’s photo is a blast from way past, and a preview of my upcoming blog tour:

Cal Poly, the inspiration for Santa Lucia Polytechnic in Whirlwind

Located on the Central Coast of California, Cal Poly is on the edge of the city, San Luis Obispo. This photo was taken a LONG time ago (1988), and the campus has grown a lot since then. One thing that hasn’t changed is the brown hills. This is the color of most of California in the summer and fall.

If you look close, you can see the white “P” on the hillside (for Poly). On the left side is the “back forty.” Whirlwind fans will remember what happened out there…

Be sure and check out the Whirlwind Blog Tour, starting June 6th, for even more photos, outtakes, an interview with hero Jason McAlister, and other goodies! The tour runs through June 17th, followed by a live chat with me on the 18th. Hosted by the fantastic Missie of The Unread Reader!
