Frivolous Friday! Lunch in La Jolla & THE BIRDS

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

Had lunch in La Jolla this week!   We heard that the cute little street near the La Jolla Shores Beach was blocked off from traffic for sidewalk dining and had to check it out.

Here’s a photo that I just HAD to capture because “if your outfit matches a mural take a photo with it.”  (It’s a law I think!) 😉

Here’s the little section of Avenida De La Playa that’s been closed off to traffic – and it’s filled with yummy and cute cafes!

We parked in the non-mermaid section and strolled in….

After careful evaluation, we decided on El Charro for lunch – and I had a super yummy shrimp taco and enough to take home for lunch the next day too….score!!

And then of course we decided to top off our Vitamin Sea levels so we strolled down to the sand….it was beautiful!

We made enemies with a seagull after he (she?) tried to dive bomb our leftover container….YIKES….but the food was saved!

(wish I had a pic of the attack…ha!)

Yep, this happened #2:

I spotted a ring tail hawk standing IN MY DRIVEWAY….and holy cow they are bigger than you think!

I looked if up and an adult mail can weigh 3.5 lbs, stand 26 inches high and have a wingspan of over 4 feet!!!.

This guy stood around for about 5 minutes (long enough for me to go get my zoom lens) and then he spotted me and decided he would move on….

Speaking of birds visiting me, my Hooded Orioles are back and I’m loving them so much!

I have three feeders just for them and they love it.


I captured that video by setting up my iPhone on a tripod and triggering the shutter with an app on my Apple Watch from inside the house….Hooded Orioles are super skittish but I’m trickier…. 😉

What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!
