San Diego Brewery Romp

The weekend before my son turned 16, we'd been invited to a birthday party in San Diego. Not ones to let a beer opportunity pass us up, we accepted and packed our bags. We spent the entire weekend exploring San Diego and it's many breweries. And with so many to choose from, we had to narrow our list to a manageable amount. We ended up with: Saint Archer, Stone, Iron Fist, Belching Beaver, White Labs, Coronado Brewing, Modern Times, Ballast Point and Green Flash.

Day Trip: Redondo Beach

Pedal boats around the marina was a blast. It's good exercise, and a lot of fun. We loved getting out on the water and relaxing.

Golden Road Brewery

It was my birthday this weekend, and aside from dinner Saturday night, I didn’t have any real plans. So when Saturday showed up all gorgeous, I decided it was time for a brewery visit. I’d just spent a few hours compiling a Foursquare list of breweries for just this type of occasion. Here's a few shots of our visit to Golden Road Brewery.

Stopping to smell the roses

I'm lucky to live and work where I do. I try hard not to forget that. Here's a few shots from about 3 stops on my way up Palos Verdes Blvd.

CICLaVia

I've been wanting to get out and see CicLAvia for a while now. Today was perfect, even if the temps hit 95 degrees.
