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.

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 🙂

Mama Jamaica

Kearny Mesa, Mama Jamaica, Portrait,

Last Friday myself and my colleagues decided to give Mama Jamaica a try during our lunch break, it had some decent reviews on yelp and we wanted to try something new. Having moved from Toronto, which has a huge Caribbean community, I really missed having some good old jerk chicken 🙂 When I was placing my order I mentioned to the lady how much I missed Jamaican food and she asked me where I was from and it turns out that she had moved to San Diego from Toronto over 20 years ago. And if that wasn’t enough of a coincidence she lived across the street from where I worked for the last 10 years there.

This is my entry for this week’s photo challenge, a collage of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The place has changed so much over the years that I hardly recognize it, where there used to be water they have built man made land!

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.

Lifeguard Tower

Clouds, HDR, La Jolla, La Jolla Cove, La Jollla, Lifeguard Tower, San Diego, sunset

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!
