    It’s beautiful out there…. but I haven’t figured out where she works….

    In fact someone asked yesterday whether the Garden of Vegan was in New Orleans.
    I meant to say that, along with the newspaper office, it was much more likely to be in Sebastopol or Santa Rosa CA….

    The street looks like Sebastopol, a small town where vegan cafes, crystal shops and spiritual coaches thrive….
    but the building looks out of place. We have few storefronts that I know of in either city with upstairs balconies.

    Cartoonistic license, maybe.

    Spud Point is on the N Cal coast, near Bodega Bay, where The Birds was filmed.

    About 15 miles, but at least half an hour over twisty roads, to Sebastopol, another. easier, 10 to 12 miles to most workplaces in Santa Rosa.

    However, as with all geography in Cartoonland, your mileage may vary.

    You are talking my roots, SS!

    Born in Santa Rosa in the 60s. Mom and dad met in Berkeley. For a while I was a naked baby mingling with the chickens on a commune where Goat Rock State Park now stands.

    I’m thinking Jenner or Ft. Ross…or Stinson Beach?

    Ermal .. I live (and Paige works) in Santa Rosa…. I apparently moved here when you were in grade school.

    I’m not sure what you’re guessing might be on the coast….
    but at this juncture in the flashback, we know Jane has just moved to Spud Point… we saw the sign a few days ago.

    On workdays, she often stops for coffee and doughnuts at Dorothy’s bookstore…
    but is now visiting Skye’s cafe….
    so I’d think they’re both close to the newspaper office.

    And from Chelle’s “out”, above, I think they’re all more inland.

    That’s all, of course, only true if Paige is using actual geography, and as I said…. cartoons may take liberties.

    Wow! Thanks! I would have guessed North Platte, Nebraska.

    Nah, just tip it up.

    Or, since we’re apparently in California, just buy a goat.

    Well, at least Chelle has the right shirt on. I’m glad Jane has finally found an authentic home, a trailer.

    Actually here in CA you can easily rent a goat, or a small herd, to eat away your weeds/grass, this works especially well on hillside lots where a mower cannot go.

    Jane’s shirt confused me; thought it was Jill, but with round shades.
