LEGOLAND Carlsbad, California June 2008

My grandchildren are into this toy building bricks like you cannot believe. They are really good at putting them together and creating stuffs. My wife decided a trip to LEGOLAND is something they'll enjoy; so last Wednesday a short trip to Carlsbad allowed them the full day to spend and marvel at the various replicas of places made of these tiny interlocking bricks.

Happy Father's Day!

A panoramic view of a small lake showing a solitary man sitting on a bench (unless you click to enlarge the pic, you can hardly see him and his bike.)

A closer view of the man and his bike, probably a father enjoying a rare moment of solitude.

There's a park across a major street from our house where I usually take a long walk in the morning whenever I am not on the road. There are two lakes within, both of which are regularly stock with catchable trout and catfish. Three of the pictures posted here were taken inside the park.

One of the lakes

A feeble attempt at macrophotography

Second lake where every so often I'll see a fisherman or two trying their luck. Note the handiwork "ng walang magawang matino" on the tree.

Crawfish cooked Cajun style, marinated artichoke heart and cognac for an evening light meal

My dream car LOL (You can probably park this car in a seedy neighborhood with the door unlocked and the engine running and nobody will steal it LOL)

My wife was in the Philippines to attend a family reunion and I was on my own at home. I got tired of eating out and doing my own amateurish cooking so I decided to go to a neighborhood Japanese grocery store and bought tuna sashimi, tofu and California roll for lunch. Looked good and tasted good and the double shot of whiskey made it even better LOL.
