Walking in Little Italy

We met up with our friend Frank and several others from my photography club in Little Italy last Tuesday evening for dinner and some photography.

We had Gabriel with us and since he flies home on Saturday, it was nice for us to get out and enjoy the nice weather and do a bit of sightseeing before he leaves.

Although dinner of some not so authentic lasagna, ravioli, and manicotti at the Spaghetteria left a lot to be desired - we should have gone to Filippi's for pizza - the gelato at Pappalecco's definitely made up for it!

Little Italy is a great place to be a night. Lots of movement and lights; it makes for some good street photography, but even if I didn't have my camera with me, it was nice being with friends and family.

A Day at the Zoo

We went to the San Diego Zoo last Sunday. This time we had Gabriel with us and we met our friend Frank. It was a good day.

The tiger cubs - Christopher & Conner - were out! So adorable to watch them play.

After the zoo, we walked over to the Museum of Art and had lunch at their cafe. Overpriced hamburgers that weren't all that great, but the company was enjoyable so a nice ending to a wonderful day.
