ISTE

San Diego, California!  That is where I was from Sunday to Wednesday this week.  I attended ISTE, an International Technology Convention. 
It was good, but long and we walked SO much!  My legs and feet ached non-stop.  We walked the mile from our hotel to the convention center, all around the huge convention center all day long and then walked back uphill to the hotel. 
The lights changed color on the wall.  Not so exciting in this photo.
We ate in Little Italy twice.  I had this yummy sandwich of zucchini, eggplant, cheese and porto bello mushrooms.  The other dish I had was Involtini.  I so should have taken a picture, it looked disgusting but was beyond delicious.  Mushrooms, spinach, ricotta and a little pasta.
Lots of ships in the harbor.
We saw a dolphin.




The crazy crowds at the conference.


We tried to get to Mission beach for a sunset shot, but all I got was this view out the car window.

The sunset was basically over when we arrived.


We managed to squeeze in a temple session one night.  The temple was beautiful, but so small.
The last day we rode the city bus out to Coronado Island.  It was so gorgeous.  Too bad we only had an hour before we had to get back to the airport.

And the crowded airport. 
The last view of the ocean, as seen through the dirty airplane window.
All photos taken with my iPhone.

Farmington Bay

I took a lunch break with a couple of friends and we headed to Farmington Bay.  The pictures weren't the best, so I played around with actions in Photoshop.  I don't love any of the images, but I had fun playing with them.

Bridge Building

 After many, many years of use, one of the culvert/bridges at the South Farm finally broke apart.  So, Boyd lined up all of his resources and got to work.
 Most of the photos are courtesy of Boyd.







I helped by sitting in a chair and reading a book.   I like to be useful like that :)



 The dogs came too.  They helped by digging huge holes in the hay field.
 Good job, Boyd!
