My First Root Beer Float
Back in 1957, I had my very first root beer float here while visiting my Grandmother at her cottage (WIT’S END) on Campbell street backed up against the 7th T of the now gone golf course.
I was just there last weekend and went “in search of”. It was bitter sweet as many of the old places are gone. The Redwood Inn, The Blue Heron, among a few. But most of all I would love to see the Root Beer Barrel back.
I took my wife up Mt Baldy after visiting the museum. The memories of those times visiting Nana and Grace (her friend that lived down at the end of Campbell) will be with me forever.
Thanks for holding on to the memory for me.
