So - weird sunrise yesterday morning. A kind of black and white one. Did not fool with these pictures, this is just how it looked.
Turned out to be a really nice day though. We got ourselves out of the RV and took a ride to Cerritos, just up the road from us. It is where we go to watch the fishermen come in. NO fishermen yesterday. A sunny Sunday during Carnaval. The tide was out and the beach was full of people. Swimming, rock climbing, eating and dancing. I counted three different groups of musicians there.
Even tables between the boats.
I was waiting for her to finish her call to get out of the picture. But finally just took it anyway. Just like the combination of colors and items.
Three on a motorbike. Kid, mom and dad.
We left this area and went down to the restaurant La Bruija - I'd bought a blown glass flying pig there several years ago and managed to break it over the summer so wanted to replace it. The glass blower wasn't there but he'd left some of his pieces - one being a flying pig. So got that.
Also looked at a really neat all leather purse. Pockets for all my stuff. Is $30 a lot for a leather purse.
Didn't buy it. But still thinking about it.
Came home for a while where I tried to keep up with the Daytona race on line, just watching the leaderboard. Even that chews up data. My oldest son kept texting me where my favorite driver was. #18 won the first stage??? What is a stage? Guess when we get home I'll have to catch up on things. I hate Daytona - it is nothing but a destruction derby. In all three races - truck, Ixfinity and Cup only half the field finished. If I was an owner I would just enter a piece of junk and to heck with it.
Then we went to La Mona in the Marina for early dinner, pizza. Got there just after the race ended and they had the victory celebration on TV. Glad for Kurt and for Mike Walthrop.

I have a setting on my camera to take pictures of food Of course I never remember to set it. So yesterday while waiting for our pizza I did remember - took this picture of my ice tea. But forgot to take a picture of our pizza!!!
Came home and watched the big Carnaval parade on TV. I think is was the nicest we've seen.
Lots and lots of bright colors. The Malecon. See the heart on the hotel in the background.
Just some of the colorful entries.
This years queen. The dress weighed 25 pounds.
Last years queen in the silver on the right.
Just some of the entries. Will post more in the coming days - especially if I don't have anything interesting to write about.
