A Short Stroll at Berkeley's Aquatic Park


Just a short stroll at Berkeley's Aquatic Park:

And there was a lot of water fowl around:

It was a short but nice stroll at a peaceful and relaxing place

The Arts District of Las Vegas


The Arts District has really become more a destination for quirky, artsy things every time I go there. It located way off the strip and past Downtown, it is a really cool place to see interesting things:

And the murals on the buildings are really interesting:

And they may have been the coolest mural on a building I have ever seen:

The Arts District of Las Vegas is a really cool and interesting place to visit.

Characters in Half Moon Bay


 I have been going through pictures that I have shot for this blog and stuff I have never used. I found these, these characters are from a shop in Half Moon Bay that I stopped by:

You never know what you will see when you are driving.

Music Monday: Some Modern Catchy Tunes and An Oldie

 Music Monday: I have been helping with a wildlife camp on Saturday's with little kids. It is interesting experience. Anyway, one day it was misting outside and we couldn't go outside, so we had an indoor lesson and some coloring. Well, they wanted to hear some music, so I decided to play DJ and here are some of the songs the kiddos choose:

But the strange thing is all the girls wanted to hear this oldie and it really surprised me but I played it and all of them stopped what they were doing and watched the video:

Yep, they all wanted to hear Material Girl by Madonna. I guess the more things change, the more they remain the same.

I thought that they were so cool and have so much detail.

Just Some Naval Aircraft


I was over at USS Hornet, which was an Essex-class aircraft carrier that was in service from 1943-1947 and then from 1953 to 1970. It is a museum docked in Alameda these days and it has a number of Naval Aircraft on display ranging from the 1940's to the 1980's:

It was really cool to see all the Naval planes and one cool thing is that driving over there you pass Encinal High School and they have this plane outside the front entrance of the school and they are nicknamed the Jets:

Hanging Out in Niles


I went over to Niles which is a part of Fremont. Before the 1950's, the city of Fremont was actually five different small towns and Niles was one of them. The Niles section is known for being quaint and its antique shops and its general small town feeling unlike the rest of Fremont:

It still keeps its railroad heritage:

It has a lot of cool shops to go into:

And Charlie Chaplin hated the place because it was so rural but shot one of his most famous movies there-The Tramp but Niles still remembers him:

I love walking around Niles and need to do it more since it is about 15 minutes from my house.
