A Whale of a Tale

To celebrate getting another year older, Ian took me whale watching. It was so much fun! If you are looking for something to do with your family definitely check out the Hornblower Whale Watching Adventure. We must have went on a great day because within the first hour we found three whales hanging out of the coast of San Diego. We then headed nine miles off the shore near the Coronado Islands where we spotted a few more. It was an awesome experience to see glimpses of these enormous mammals. Definitely marking it as a memorable wonderful day!

Coming to a theater near you...

As you may know, Ian worked on a short film project all of last year. His goal was to produce a short film every month for the entire year. He documented the entire process and posted all of the films online at Well, December 31st, he was able to finish this incredible achievement. After an entire year of writing, shooting, and editing, he was able to accomplish the goal he set out to do in January of 2008.

To celebrate this accomplishment, we wanted to see all of his hard work on the 'Big Screen.' We are excited to announce that on the evening of February 7, 2009, all 12 films will be showing in the theater at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park.

The doors open at 6:30pm and the screening will start at 7:00pm. Tickets are $10 (cash or check) and can be purchased at the door the night of the event.

You can also view and respond to the Facebook event for the screening here.

The museum has a great theater and we are both very excited to see ALL of the films up on the big screen! We know this couldn't have happened without your support and encouragement so we would love to have you there.

Day off for Adventure

Today we began by waking up late. This is something we haven't done in quite sometime. We then decided today needed to be an adventure so we headed west. First stop, Wahoo's Fish Tacos for lunch. After a great lunch we continued west to Pacific Beach. While driving down Grand Avenue I had a thought, "PB needs less tattoo shops and more ice cream parlors." This conversation led to actual ice cream cravings (or maybe other way around), which is why we ended up at Longs Drug Store. In front of the store, we found these items laid out on the side walk. It seemed like an ecletic collection so I took a picture.

A copy of Nativity Story, a Tao Calendar, a copy of Surfer Magazine, and an incense burner are just not things you expect to see together. The selection of ice cream was pretty scarce there so we continued up Mission Boulevard until we hit Cold Stone Creamery. We ordered it to go and drove up to Kate Session's Park.

This place is special to us because not only because it has an incredible view of San Diego, but it is also where we got married. After spending an hour sitting at the park and playing with a few Boston Terriers and Pugs who kept mistaking us for their owners, we headed back east.

Heading east on Highway 8 with an itch for adventure took us straight to Viejas. We quickly learned four dollars in quarters on the penny slots does not take a long time commitment. It was enough time to realize it was time for dinner. I whipped out my iPhone and used the Urban Spoon application. This application will find your exact location anywhere in the world and then give you options of restaurants based on genre and price.

The first suggestion it provided was "Tylers Taste of Texas" in El Cajon.
We ordered the BBQ beef with beans, slaw, and a baked potato. The service was amazing, but our taste for BBQ did not quite match Tyler's. But adventure was on the menu and that is what we ordered! (Sorry, couldn't resist:))

After a few Tums, and spending thirty minutes on the treadmill, we are going to watch a new episode of 'House' and call it a day. That's a wrap for another day of Robertson Adventure.
