July 4th Recap

So no super crazy parties with fireworks that light up the sky or beer centered get togethers where we play games with mugs and ping pong balls... though that would be fun also... instead, the wife and I started in San Francisco and drove down along PCH all the way back to LA.  Stopping by various places, SF-> Santa Cruz -> Monterey -> Big Sur -> San Luis Obispo -> Santa Barbara -> FINALLY Los Angeles.  More than ever, I wish I had a good wide angle lens.  A 24mm would have been a great  lens to have as the scenery was just too much for a 50mm to take in.   Anyways, here are a few pics from that wonderful long weekend.

Notable Foods

Probably one of the best lobster salads ever.
