California Adventure

   Hey guys! Sorry you haven't heard from me in awhile! The family and I just got back from a surprise vacation to San Diego. And I can tell you it was awesome! I will be sharing pictures soon, once I get them downloaded—but figure this. My camera just goes and stops working. We think some sand got in the lens, so it's freezing up, and the buttons won't work, etc. I'm hoping to be able to get in there and clean it out, so it'll work. Right when I need it to get pictures for my jewelry so I can open shop. Hopefully I have enough previous pictures that will do. 

   In between museums and trips to the San Diego zoo (which is awesome! Can't wait to share those pictures!) I was able to get some writing done in the notebook I made sure to bring along. I was able to get some of Alexis down—thoughts of a realistic chain of action and reaction, how Alexis would actually find a way to feel her way into the acceptance of her new neighbors. Not really for the sake of acceptance, no—but knowing that she needs to play her cards, and to guard against the opinion that she's crazy, she would need to find the heart of a "common ground". But not only does it actually begin to grow as she hopes, she finds herself beginning to even respect and care for them. They are a people far different she expects, for her own—but there is a passion that she can recognize. Perhaps even provide a strength for her to fall back on when she realizes there is no known way home.
   
  But enough of writing. (Although on that note I was able to get down a couple poems too, which I hope to be submitting soon. Something I need to get back into the habit of doing). The last few days were spent at Disneyland, which, I am sorry to say, I was unable to get pictures of since my camera was being coy. But I can say that we all had a great time. Oh, and if you ever go to the California Adventure—be SURE to go on the Screamin' Rollercoaster, and The Hollywood Tower. Just thrilling! The Tower was enormous fun, and interesting. Certainly worth it. We all had fun at the Radiator Racers ride, but the wait was ridiculous. Thank goodness it was so fun in the end, but not something I'd want to wait an hour and a half for. One ride the whole family absolutely LOVED was the Woody ride. It was like a digital shooting gallery that was so FUN!! And we all got pretty decent scores. My assassin sister got the highest the second time around, at 185K. So proud. ;)

   Well I better close for now—heaven knows I can just ramble. But I hope to show my pictures within the next few days, and to be able to announce my shop opening as well! I will just have to see what the days bring.
Ciao for now!

   P.S. Oh, by the way—if you're a fellow chocolate lover, do NOT fail to visit the Ghirardelli shop! They had ICE CREAM!! I even saved the cup. ;D

  1. I'm glad you had a great time. I have always wanted to see the San Diego zoo because I've heard a lot of good things about it, so I'm glad you got to go.
