The California Desert

Jul 21, 15 The California Desert

Posted by in California, Featured, Palm Springs

It was 108F (42C). Or at least that’s what the car was telling us. In my mind, after 86F (30C) it’s too hot. But, I will say that the heat in Palm Springs soaks into your bones and I can see the appeal if you are one of those people who feels constantly chilled. It wasn’t so hot that we couldn’t go out and...

Roadtrip: Coachella Valley

Jul 19, 15 Roadtrip: Coachella Valley

Posted by in California, Featured, Palm Springs, Road Trips

Do you see all the desert sand? I asked. What! Sand! I though that sand in the desert was just a myth and that it was really made of lots of grass. No. That would be savanna. Deserts are made of sand. This road trip was a learning experience for both of us… because this was our very first trip to a desert, in this case the...

Week 2/3 of the Summer of Chaos

Week two and week three look remarkably similar to each other, so I’ll group them together. On the surface things look like they are stable, but the flux is increasing and I feel like we are walking on shifting sand. We somehow managed to avoid sudden trips to Halifax, Chicago, Quebec, and Denver… so far (fingers...

Gluten Free in Long Beach

Long Beach is apparently on its way to being a foodie haven… if you believe the interwebs and all the press. I don’t doubt it; there have been a number of celebrity chef events in the area (one of which a friend attended). However, because of all this hype, many restaurants have picked up on the buzz and promote...

The Queen Mary

Jul 13, 15 The Queen Mary

Posted by in Featured, Los Angeles

I feel there are few living/breathing objects out there that can quietly exude to the impact they had on so many lives. The Queen Mary is one of these. She sits like a quiet mountain overlooking Long Beach, seemingly bigger than she actually is. Her draw for many are the ghost stories that people spread… but her real history...

Aquarium of the Pacific

Jul 09, 15 Aquarium of the Pacific

Posted by in Creatures, Featured, Kidtastic, Los Angeles

Long Beach’s Aquarium isn’t as large or as complex as some of the other California ones: Monterey, San Francisco, or San Diego. In fact, compared to places like Boston and Atlanta it seems downright tiny. The focus of the aquarium in Long Beach the “Pacific Ocean” and those critters that we associate with...

Kayaking in Naples

Jul 07, 15 Kayaking in Naples

Posted by in Featured, Los Angeles

Five years ago when I first visited Naples, I don’t remember Kayaks on the Water being on Alamitos Bay. Instead there was a business that offered gondola rides around Naples Island… both during the day and at night… with wine and food. I remember it being extremely difficult and expensive to book a reservation with...

Happy 4th of July Weekend

Jul 05, 15 Happy 4th of July Weekend

Posted by in Events, Featured, Los Angeles

In the US people go a little mad for Independence Day celebrations. It’s an opportunity to let loose, kick off the summer, and hang out with friends/family. Also, this is one of the few holidays in the US that many people get off (the big two are 4th of July and Thanksgiving)… so they make it matter. We are in Long...
