A Day in Good Old San Francisco

I have been in the Bay Area for several days now and I still haven't visited San Francisco yet, my old romping grounds for seven years!  So I decided that I would make a trip of it today and visit some old friends as well as the school I attended, San Francisco Art Institute.  Not a lot has changed in the city, it was still just as busy as ever and the new Bay Bridge…

Adrenaline to End the Day!

Since we decided to come back from our trip to Monterey, we thought there might be an inkling of hope that the sunset in Santa Cruz might give us a chance to still capture some images with surfers in the background.  We went to Lighthouse Point Park where many people go to watch surfers as well as to see the lighthouse, which is also a surf museum.  From a distance, all the surfers swam in…

Today was a very eventful day.  Woke up early and took off for a drive to Monterey.  There were several things I wanted to see and do on this particular outing:  Monterey Bay Aquarium, Tillie Grot's Cafe (a highly recommended vegetarian restaurant), drive along the 17 Mile Drive, and catch a sunset at the Lone Cyprus tree.  Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with the sunset plan but three out of four wasn't bad.  Instead of…

Palm Trees and California Sun

I've been staying with a friend in Almaden Valley for the last couple days, and will be for the rest of my time here in the Bay Area.  I lazed around the pool today without a plan and just reminisced about the time when I used to live in the Bay area. The palm trees, the pool, and the sun, it all makes me feel so...Californian.  But at heart, I am a Vancourverite and being…

Seeing Red at the Historic Santa Cruz Hotel

What would it be like to be like to have dinner in a 1900s brothel?  With only the letters "h" and "o" on the illuminated neon sign of the historic Santa Cruz hotel attracting hungry diners into an all red den, the Red Restaurant & Bar reminds me of such a place.  If you ever visit, this is a must go not only for the cool setting, but for the amazing menu and drinks.  While…

Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is one of my favourite small towns along the coast.  The downtown area of Santa Cruz is basically one road and some of the main stores are on those three or four blocks.  Out of them all, the one I visit the most is Pacific Wave Surf Shop mostly because they have the best selection of t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, and toques.  While in Santa Cruz, we also drown down the pier and just…

Rock Bottom Brewery in Campbell

It was a very productive day today.  it started off very lazy but then we went out and had lunch at the Rock Bottom Brewery in Campbell.  After lunch, there was an old banana seat bicycle parked outside underneath the water tower and I couldn't resist so I sat down and took a picture with it.  I hope the owner won't mind.  Afterwards, we went to a look at a local art gallery where a…
