Geocaching next to Lake Merced in San Francisco.
This is my entry for this week’s Photo Friday: Tiny.
I always thought of Pasadena as part of my teenage stomping grounds. There was so much to do without a fake ID.
Sipping coffee in Old Town. Goofing around on the diagonal crosswalks. Watching sneak previews.
As an adult (who is still carded at Old Town bars), I discovered more of the city’s nooks and crannies thanks to my geocache adventures.
One cache led me to the Memorial Arch of Pasadena’s first free public library.
I’m not feeling the Halloween spirit this year. Sadly, this costumed holiday falls on a work day. I don’t have the energy to deal with trick-or-treaters and party people when I have to be at work before sunrise.
I gave up on my Droid X. I was fed up with the freezing and corrupted photo/videos. Also, phone rebooting without warning – not cool.
I dived back into geocaching when I switched to the iPhone. I missed the hunt. The mind puzzles tickled me.
I believe the best part about geocaching: exploring places that were off my radar. We spotted this cache at Quarry Park in Half Moon Bay.
This is my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands.
Colleague: “You should join me for the Off the Grid food truck event by Fort Mason.”
Another Colleague: “I’d love to see you at our karaoke party in JapanTown.”
Evite: “Host wanted to remind you about (insert friend’s name) birthday coming up.”
I hit the “unavailable” button on the Evite page.
My response: “I wish I could but I can’t.”
My reason: I’ll be sleeping at that time because I need to be back in the newsroom by midnight.
I live in a separate time stream from my friends, family and co-workers. Most people think Friday night is the perfect night to hang out, discover new food spots and catch-up.
It’s just another work day for me.
