huntington beach

I was born and raised in Huntington Beach, but I rarely ever hit the beach. Surf City offers tons of sandy beaches, fun fairs on the weekends, good food, and great waves. Going through high school at HBHS, I got as far as Main St on a regular basis. I don't even know how to surf. This past weekend, my friend Carmen dragged me out to boogie board, and I agreed since the sky was overcast and the breeze was strong. I carefully took my camera out for some select shots, but had to put it away too many times because sand was blowing my way, and I kind of hyperventilate if my camera is in danger. It's ok though. I put my camera away, waded into the water, and watched the junior lifeguards race around the pier. The day just reminded me of how beautiful Southern California is, and what a blessed life I lead to be so close to the water and the breeze.

After we left Comic Con, we came across this awesome baseball set in the parking lot. It was so obscure, no one even noticed it driving by. We took advantage of the obscurity and these are the images of our baseball series.

Comic Con

I attended Comic Con with my bros and some friends today, and here are some pics taken of me from my camera. I'm excited about the new Alice in Wonderland, and love the Star Trek Captiain's Chair. This was my first time going, and I had only one day to enjoy it. I met Stan Lee, saw the cast of BSG, Mark Hamill [Luke Skywalker], Tyrese from Transformers, and some others. We took a million pics and I can't wait til next year!

San Francisco

We had one person in our group that has never been to the Golden Gate, so we had to make a stop. These are images from my camera, my beloved G10.

Contemporary Jewish Museum

This Contemporary Jewish Museum was designed by a famous Jewish architect, Daniel Libeskind. One of our girls is studying architecture, and was particularly interested in this piece he did. We made the trek to see the architecture, but I will make sure to go through the museum next time I'm in town.

Maisonry Winery

We Heart Yountville. We went for a light lunch at Bouchon Bakery, and then headed off to Maisonry.
The winery was a recommendation from a wine professor, and it did not disappoint. I bought 2 bottles of the 2008 Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc from Lail Vineyards. It was an all around favorite, and I was on the hunt for a great crisp white for my dinner this upcoming week. This was perfect.
This was our tasting room. Hundreds of furniture pieces fill the house and it was the decor for our tasting room. Two huge speakers hug the side walls with an ipod deck! We happen to have an ipod filled with Michael Jackson favorites, and he let us blast 5 songs in the tasting room! This mirror is a piece in that room, and we had fun with it!

This is my tasting chair. I swear.

Our first winery is Darioush. It's owned by a Persian man who made his fortune in grocery stores in Palos Verdes. His dream was to have his own winery in Napa and this is it. The grounds are small, but absolutely stunning. We allowed ourselves ample time to take pics in this winery, and the results are as follows. I did not purchase any bottles here, but the 2007 Signature Chardonnay was my favorite.
