Final Moments on my First Vacation

So the final day of my California adventure. We spent the last day of vacation at my cousins’ house in Irvine. I hadn’t seen my aunt and uncle in a while, so it was great to see them and hang out with them. It was super fun to fight over the dinner check when we went to Ding Tai Fung as well. We caused quite a scene, and my only regret is that I didn’t record it with my camera. Enjoy the last day of pictures! I am getting caught up pretty quickly on the posts that I have to write. Lobsterfest, Blue Point Tap Takeover, and Ravi’s graduation party are all that are left. Probably will put up other pictures that didn’t make it to the posts as a gallery too.

Last day in Carlsbad


So the it only takes me like 10-20 minutes to write these posts, and then another 40-50 to put up the pictures and format them in a way I feel is presentable. Luckily, this post doesn’t have too many pictures, but mostly that’s because Katnip and I spent a lot of the morning/early afternoon at the beach where we were too busy enjoying ourselves to take pictures. In the evening we went to Besta-Wan Pizza house with Mary & her boyfriend Eric, then finished the day with the 3 Bs – Beach, Beer, and Buddies.

Memories of the 2nd day of my California Vacation

I cannot believe how busy I’ve become. But one thing I’ve made sure to do is write this blog every Tuesday. I seem to have failed this week though. Since May 12th, I’ve had some kind of event every Saturday until Yesterday. First Cask Fest at Ashley’s in Westland; then Ann Arbor to take Will to the bars there and also hung out with my cousin Connie at various places in Ann Arbor; followed by Memorial Day weekend up north with Trevor and my family; then another vacation the following weekend to Carlsbad, California; and finally Ravi’s Graduation Party last Saturday that happened concurrently with the second Guild Wars 2 Beta. This Saturday I had nothing planned, although Lobsterfest was on Friday and we had some delicious food/beers. But this weekend I finally had a Saturday to just relax and not do anything. I did begin my writing for these posts though, and now I finish it on Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers out there.

Vacationing, without the parental units.

So I was pondering how to properly divide up the blog posts for this trip, and I think the only thing I’ve really settled on is having a final post on Monday that has as many pictures as I care to upload and put up as a slideshow/gallery. I think the problem is that I’ve only been here 1 and a half days, and I’ve taken…411 pictures. That poses a problem for what to add into each blog post. Even if I divide the posts by day, the sheer number of pictures is just ridiculous. Maybe a gallery post for each day too? It’s really quite a conundrum. I think putting up SOME pictures from each day and just leaving you with mouths watering for more is the best way to do it. Even then I’ve only been able to pick like 40 pictures. I guess we’ll see how this turns out. I may have to be more selective with my picture picking. That way you have something to look forward to on Monday/Tuesday. Let us start from the beginning shall we?

California Arrival

Now to be chronologically out of order, here are some of my thoughts and some pictures from my arrival into San Francisco International Airport, or as it is lovingly known by the ticket booking service – SFO. I had a pretty smooth trip through security and to San Francisco. Only snag I ran into was […]
