While in California, I took lots of pictures with my new camera. As in, over 600. That's more than I took in all of 2010. HOLY FUCK.
**Yeeeeeee!!!! I got a new camera!! It's a Nikon D3100 and I am currently just using the lens that came with it, but I have big plans for many more in the future ;) Also, a camera bag...I want one!
As with all of our vacation photos, I am only in like, 3 of the California pictures, but I don't mind...I don't need to see a picture of myself to remember that I was there. I would like more pictures with me and Saul at cool places we've visited, but until I can actually remember to ask someone to take one of us, not gonna happen. I strive to be better in 2012.
Here are a few of our time in the Marina del Rey area - like I mentioned before, we just roamed aimlessly up and down the coast, stopping into restaurants when we got hungry, and stopping random places to get out and walk around. It was awesome and relaxing and I got to see little pockets of my home state that I had never visited. I was such a nerdy tourist, and I loved it.
Pretty sure this was somewhere near Redondo Beach...?
I hate solo pictures, but there was no one around to take one of both of us...boo.
Where we ended up each night...right next door to our hotel.
This one isn't on the menu anymore, but the bartender made it special for me - Chocolate Truffle Raspberry Martini.
Saul likes 'em straight up and dirty
Our bartender friend, Jason. He was a transplant from Missouri.
Our other bartender friend, Holly. She wasn't from California, either. In fact, most of the people we met there weren't originally from the state...
26 Beach. The only place where I thought to take a picture of the awesome food we ate.
Saul was so embarrassed that I was taking pictures in the restaurant.
The post title comes from him asking me, in a hushed tone, to please not make my flash go off!
It was 1/2 off wine night when we went in. Basically, buy one bottle, get the other free!
*I am still working on figuring out my camera, so the settings were all f'ed up this day. These are crazy over-exposed, but I still like 'em.

Even graffiti in CA is better than TX...
This way to the Polar Bear Park
They see me rollin'...
We stopped at the skatepark and watched for a while
Oh Venice Beach - you are so full of weirdos.
Ain't no shame in their game.
Homeboy with the beer at 10am, I like your style.
Have a good weekend!!
