High Tea at the Royale Tea Room

The Royale Tea Room in La Jolla Cove is running a Groupon Special. A company running a Groupon is usually a red flag for me. Its either a fledgling business with a change on management or product offerings, or one that is brand spanking new with no reputation to speak of. The Royale Tea room was an example of the latter. 

I consider myself to be a quite a High Tea Connoisseur at this point, so we decided to give it a shot.

Snorkeling at La Jolla Cove

Rowdy invited me for an impromptu snorkeling trip to La Jolla Cove my last off friday. I have NEVER gone  snorkeling before. I am scuba certified so I like, know how to do it, but I never before have embraced the pure enjoyment of swimming about with fins. It was so fun. It was also a beautiful spot. If you remember, this is where I went Kayaking with Alex for his birthday.

Antique Gas and Steam Engine Musuem

There is an Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista. We haven't been to it before so we decided to check it out. For some reason it sounded way more fun than the creationist museum, and we've thoroughly pursued all the Balboa park options three times over. 

We thought it would be more musuem-y. There weren't many placards and most of the time we didn't know what we were looking at. In general, it looked like we were walking through a partially curated junk yard. I could tell it was cool and unique, I just culdn't make heads or tails of it. The point of a musuem is to like, learn something, right? I could tell there was some real information here if only a knowledgeable and vociferous person was standing beside me. 

Photos to follow.

10 Things Lately... August

1. Fall Semester starts in Two Weeks! I feel completely not ready for this. I am planning to take a course at Mesa and at State. I’ll be paying a bit more for the privilege of taking courses at two separate colleges, but the schedule will be a bit easier with the manufacturing process we are developing at work.

Makeup and Engagement Photos

We had our engagement portraits done this weekend. I decided I should give my makeup artist a trial at the same time to test them both out.

Badgeless at Comic-Con 2015

I didn't have a ticket to comic con this year again. I didn't try so hard to get one either. I had so much fun last year having lunch at my favorite irish resturant The Field downtown and enjoying the spectacle that we had a repeat performance this year.
