Memorial Day, the family decided that they wanted to hang out before our BBQ.  One of my girls mentioned that she's been wanting to go to the beach and we thought it would be perfect to check out the low tide in Moss Beach.  It's actually a great place to hang out if you don't mind the cold weather.  When the tide is low, you can actually walk on the surface of the ocean and you can see all kinds of sea animals around those area. In some days you'll find some curious seals swimming close to the beach.  There were actually 2 seals the day we went but I was caught up in the moment that I didn't get a chance to capture any images of them.  There's also a great park next to the beach but the kids were all tired that we decided to go get dinner instead.  


I had a chance to visit Portland for a day with my sister from another mother, , to shoot a wedding.   When we weren't working during out trip, we had time to check out what was near by our hotel and found some interesting architectures in downtown area.   We also stumbled on this nice restaurant called Veritable Quandary and the food was just as great as the city it was in.

I haven't seen my nieces in over 20 years and recently they visited San Francisco for a small vacation.  I had a chance to catch up with them for a day and one of the things they wanted to experience is the sunrise in San Francisco.  I contacted a few of my friends who had better intell in these types of location and I was suggested to visit Mt. Davidson.  The location delivered and went beyond our expectation.  It was better than going to Golden Gate bridge and be surrounded by other tourist.  The location serves a great purpose for meditation, talks and of course images of the sunrise. 


Briefly visited the Sutro Bath in San Francisco last Friday.  My wife and I wanted to hang out around San Francisco for our 17th wedding anniversary.  We didn't really get a chance to thoroughly explore the area since the sun was setting and it was close to getting dark.  Maybe the next time I'll visit the area, I could provide you with more images.  Nonetheless the area was magnificent and a great place to watch the sunset.
