Sunday ramblings

It was a lovely day in Southern California, the type that makes you want to go outside and enjoy the public spaces before the Governator closes them all. Greg and I journeyed up to San Clemente, a beach town behind the Orange Curtain about 45 min north of San Diego. We had yummy Mexican food, ventured onto the fishing pier, and walked along a beachside trail.

It's good to know that there are still fun places to explore, that we've barely scratched the surface of what living in San Diego has to offer.

On the drive, we saw a truck marked Observatorio AstronĂ³mico Nacional, Baja California. I bet it was headed to the American Astronomical Society meeting in Pasadena. It feels weird not to be there! I had contemplated going for a day this week, but the one-day registration fee was too rich for me! I probably won't be at the meeting in D.C. in January, but perhaps next summer in Miami I'll meet up with my astro peeps again.

Nice. I'm glad I didn't have to hear about a fish taco, though. Seems like you guys are always eating fish tacos on your expeditions. And I'm sorry, but the idea of a fish taco makes me flinch.

Road trip coming up!!

Mmm... fish tacos - both grilled and fried fish are good. So are lobster and shrimp tacos. Mmm... come visit and we'll convert you!

I've been all wiggly for the road trip for months!

What is it about the idea of a fish taco that makes you flinch, SarahP? You just wrap a tortilla around one of these.

Mmm, fish tacos... I wouldn't trust one from up here, though. I miss good Mexican food.

I believe Greg meant this image: fish almost ready for taco

Kisha - we've now made it a policy to bring good hot sauce when we travel east of Arizona. You have our sympathies!
