It is a Gift to be the Instrument of a Miracle

Once upon a time a 10-year-old Indian Princess was always heard singing, now at 11 yrs she is unable to speak. The expression in this video link below shows her there is another way to sing, even more beautiful from the heart… only using her hands.

Winchester Swap Meet *

What a disappointment, I visited this hot, dusty, rural Winchester Swap Meet on Aug 14 2010 only to be turned away at the entrance because I had my camera on a neck strap. The lady in the entrance booth, after taking my fifty cents, informs me that no cameras were allowed. All of my webpage photos are taken with permission of the individual vendors. This is the first time I have come across a complete ban on cameras. Until I get a response to the email I sent Winchester Swap Meet, I can only speculate what the motive is behind their camera ban policy.  Christopher

Visit at your own risk, they could be strip searching people for cell phone cameras?

This is the valleys very own original swap meet tucked away on the corner of the dusty road that once lead to the Diamond Valley Look Out Point in the Community of Winchester.

Anza Swap Meet  *

* I toured this swap meet August 7, 2010 and may have arrived a little late. It was 12:30 pm and the small gathering had already half dismantled. It was a beautiful day and a scenic drive up hwy 371, it was around 80 degrees. At the swap meet I had hoped to photograph some of the art or craft talent Anza has in the area but was unable too. 

The Anza Swap Meet is held rain or shine at the Anza Community Hall in the center of town, take Highway 79 south out of Temecula to reach 371.  Thank you Julie C.

My goal today is documenting all of the locations of local Swap Meets, Flea Markets, Farmer's Markets and Art/Craft Fairs etc. Say a distance of no than 30 minutes from the 15/215 south connection.

You are visiting oldtemecula.com and this webpage is also www.highway79.com. In the future I would like to keep the present theme while focusing on the cities that SR 79 highway passes through. It stretches just over 100 miles from Julian to Beaumont. Highway 79 is the heart of Temecula Valley. Visit Wikipedia Info on SR 79.  The atomic number of Gold is 79 so our Highway of Gold might also be called the "Yellow Brick Road".

Please help me add more info or report the bad!
