Downtown San Diego at night where all the traffic was going into the city as opposed to the ocean.
Seaport village at night with the Grand Manchester Hyatt of San Diego in the background.
Field Level access at the Rogers Center to a Blue Jays game. This was Blue Jays vs the Oakland Athletics which they went on to lose the game; I’m not a baseball expert but apparently the Jays are making some major moves in the off-season.
Yesterday’s post was about Pacific Beach’s Pier and today’s post is just a few miles further north, Scripps Pier in La Jolla. This pier unlike the others in San Diego, is not open to the public but is mostly used for research by UCSD; to be more specific its part of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP).
An image of people taking a stroll on the sands of Pacific Beach. Pacific Beach’s Pier is quite unique, as you can see the first portion of the pier is made of chalets which is part of a hotel. That is the Crystal Pier Hotel, the link will take you to an image of the entrance.
The sun has set a very clear path down the ocean on where its going to set from that day and I tried to get it right down the middle of the stairs as if its inviting you chase it down the ocean 🙂 Have a great hump day.
My entry for this week’s photo challenge is the entrance of the Mechanical Engineering building at the University of toronto. I just wonder how many generations have walked through these doors with renewed hopes of a brighter future ahead. It seems like it was yesterday that we walked out of these same doors into the real world… there has been 12 classes since us!
Another picture from The Lost Abbey in Escondido which is a decent sized micro brewery. Apparently San Diego is famous for its micro brewery scene and lately I’ve been touring a lot of them, definitely much better than the big macro breweries! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.
An image of Casa de Manana’s retirement community with downtown La Jolla in the backdrop. It originally opened as Hotel Casa de Manana in 1923 and its original owner sold it in 1956, shortly after it was turned into a retirement community. The detailed story is available on their website, its a short read.
This in an image from my recent trip to Toronto, we went to a Blue Jays game against the Oakland Athletics. At one point while everyone was looking at the mound waiting for the pitcher to throw the ball I was thinking what a great photo opportunity this is 🙂
Yet another week comes to an end and what better way to end it than another sunset from La Jolla shores 🙂 Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
This is the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall where every year the new graduating class holds their commencement ceremony at, due to the size of the University now the ceremonies are broken down by faculties for the most part and for (more…)
A Picture of Hoangie’s food truck that serves Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) on the go, they are actually quite highly rated so maybe I should’ve given them a try. I took this picture outside of The Lost Abbey while touring San Diego’s North county microbreweries.
A parked Ferrari at the Stone Brewing Company, this is the the F430 Spyder. The F430 was produced from 2004 to 2009, its the predecessor was the 360 and it was later on replaced by the 458 Italia.
The lifeguard tower over children’s pool at La Jolla Cove around sunset. Considering how this the highest point overlooking the ocean and its on top of a rocky area, this is probably the central tower for La Jolla as the ocean is not very accesible from that point specially in case of an emergency!
