I could not resist just a short post to tell you about this one…. cause the 4th of July weekend there was an amazingly beautiful old old rustic boat at Embarcadero and I missed the shot…. and I’ve not seen it since. So my neighbor alerted me to this one last night and it’s another one of those moments you just have to stop everything to go collect some slices of life… my favorite thing on this planet to do!
The Esmeralda came into San Diego Port today. I was going to get down to Shelter Island to watch it come into the harbor, but I had a terrible sleeping night with Raleigh up twice in the night to go potty… that pup has serious stomach issues that greatly impact my sleep.
Anyway, I was not my usual 4:30am perky self…. hence I got to the port about 8:30am and the sails were down but the ship was lined with white uniformed sailors.
Since I’m so behind schedule and post production along with all the water issues and house hold chores beckoning me with out mercy! YIKEs! …… I just grabbed some fresh strawberries, a banana and a cup of coffee – hit the shower and ran out the door with one camera and one lens…. nothing more… very very unusual.
Amazing it was not very crowded and people were super nice and friendly. That’s such an unusual occurrence it seems these days at most events such as this. The security actually smiled and encouraged me to come on in and take photos. Everyone there of course was snapping away with iphones and cameras. NBC was the only news station I saw but they seemed to give it a good coverage…I believe they are hosting an open house on the tall ship for their entry into port today. The ship is birthed at B street pier.
Well it’s been ages since I’ve posted it seems but trust me I’ve been super busy! I think I have too many irons in the fire and maybe none of them getting hot as my Grandma would say…..
This is a very short post… but I just sort of made up a refreshing drink with some of my favorite things. The heat in San Diego has been unusually hot and a number of other things going on too… so I decided I needed a treat of some sort…. I really enjoyed this light tasty – thirst quenching drink!
I took some fresh mint and cilantro from my herb garden and used a mortar to crush it up a bit…. put all the crush plus juice into a tall tumbler. Next I did the same with cucumber, just sort of mushing it up a bit…. and dumped it right into the glass.
I thinly sliced some kiwi and lime… added them… …thennnnnnn I just poured ice-cold seltzer water into the glass, let it sit just briefly and slurped it up. I really found it refreshing!
I think it would be even better in the blender with some ice and make it into a smoothie. Add a touch of rum maybe… hummm, open for other ideas.
Refreshing, light, and easy to make… I don’t particularly like “sweet” so I did not add any type of sugar.
