San Francisco International Airport

After seeing some friends and attending a birthday party it is time to leave San Francisco.  I have just checked in at San Francisco International Airport and this terminal is larger and busier than Vancouver.  There are three domestic terminals plus the international terminal with a tram connecting them in a circular loop.  It seems like the airports that I've visited so far have all been modern in design utilizing metal and glass.  While SFO may not be the busiest airport in America, I don't know if I want to be going through security here during the day.  The wait…

My friend got hit up to to do an engagement photo shoot for a friend of his and was recruited to help him out and give some advice as well as be his "assistant".  The site that the couple chose was a beautiful area known as Lands End.  However, the weather here in San Francisco is very unpredictable.  Something that is almost certain is fog.  Lets just say, today the fog rolled in HEAVY.  Not…

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…

Tillie Gort's Cafe

Being a vegetarian, and for those who are vegan, isn't always easy.  Usually restaurants will at least try to accommodate us by supplying one or two items on the menu that doesn't offend the palate too terribly.  Occasionally there are restaurants where even their salads all have chicken or prawns in them!  Is that really necessary?  It was completely the opposite today when I went to Tillie Gort's Cafe in Pacific Grove. Almost everything on…

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…
