2008/08/23 Visiting LA and San Diego with my dad
π 2008-08-23 13:35 by Merlin in Trips

After spending some time in Vegas with his friends, my dad went to LA with them to visit. Jennifer and I flew down there to meet him. We spent a few days visiting LA (and got to meet my other friend Jennifer there, who nicely drove us around on sunday), and after that, we flew down to San Diego.



an evening at the Magic Castle where my dad's friends were working






La Brea Tar Pits, still outputting methane, tar, and SO2












More Pictures of LA


We landed soon before sunset and got some nice views of San Diego from Shelter Island where we ate in a nice Hawaian restaurant.







A few pictures of San Diego at Night


The next morning, we went to Seaworld and got the time to pet the dolphins and bat rays, and see all the shows, including the evening shows.





























that's many arms for a starfish, isn't it?




time for a nap






Many more pictures from Sea World


The next day, we drove north a bit, to Legoland. While the rides are clearly meant for children and weren't that exciting for us, some of the lego models were amazing, especially mini land with a super accurate and impressive Vegas, San Francisco, Manhattan, and others.













While the new york people can't get their shit together for building the freedom tower to replace fallen towers, legoland already has theirs :)










Their Las Vegas was truely awesome












Many more pictures from Legoland


And since we were in the area, the 3rd day we went to the nearby Wild Animal Park. While it may not have been fully complete or the best wild animal park in the world, it was still good to visit.





























More pictures from the Wildlife Animal Park .


After that, we flew back from Montgomery field in San Diego to Palo Alto, and my dad spent a few days with us in Cupertino.
One of the things we did was go to a nearby winery up skyline (Ridge) and we had a nice picnic there along with wine we had just bought.
