Monorail Red

Sunday, 20 Jul 2008 | Disneyland

I saw the new Mark VII Monorail Red at Disneyland this weekend. I had tried to see it on previous visits, but it was always hidden behind the scenes because it was being modified to better ventilate the cabin cars which do not have air conditioning. I've loved the monorail ever since I was a child.

This new monorail has a great super futuristic sleek look and uber cool blue interior lights at night. It really was impressive. I was on a mission to get some pictures of the new monorail and was finally successful. As an added treat, I was invited to ride in the cockpit by an engineer.

Sunday, 20 Jul 2008 | Family, Travel

Erin has always been proud of her one quarter Korean heritage. Sometimes I think she thinks she's mostly Korean. She taught everyone at her high school how to say I love you in Korean. So, I was overjoyed to find out she would be visiting Korea for the first time and staying for a month this summer while she's on break from college. She's going there to teach Korean university students spoken English. She left today from LAX and is due to land in Seoul around 1:00 am tomorrow morning.

Today marks 53 years since Walt Disney opened the amusement park I love, Disneyland. I wasn't able to be at the park today, but I was there with Toni on the 50th anniversary. I'll always remember walking into Disneyland with all the cast members lined up on Main Street welcoming and thanking us. :)

Ingrid and Fireworks in Coronado

Monday, 7 Jul 2008 | Friends, Photography, Restaurants

Toni and I decided to spend the 4th of July in San Diego this year. It was an easy choice because it was so much cooler and I wanted to take photographs of fireworks over the San Diego Bay.

After dinner, I took pictures of Ingrid with her mom. I wanted to capture them together. Ingrid surprised her mom with a kiss during our little photo shoot which made for a lovely image as you can see above.

I was excited to meet Ingrid's daughter Mikaela and her mother Ginnie for the first time. I recongnized them both since I have seen many pictures of them on Ingrid's Flickr photostream. We had a wonderful lunch at Swadee Thai in Coronado. It's a favorite of Ingrid. I loved the decor, food and the colorful outfits worn by the women at the restaurant. I'll have to ask if I can take pictures of their colorful dresses next time. Ingrid's son Bryce was fascinated by the hidden Mickeys on my Hawaiian shirt.

Toni and I parked and walked to the Coronado Ferry Landing to watch fireworks shot from four barges on San Diego Bay. The fireworks were spectacular and I got some very nice shots. It was a great 4th of July.
