Whale watching at Point Vicente

Every year at this time, California gray whales migrate down the coast of California to Baja and their breeding grounds. The other day I read that there were a record number of sightings, so Tanya and I took a drive up to the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Rancho Palos Verdes to see if we could photograph some as they swam by. I managed to get a couple of shots, but as the sun was setting the glare on the water made it a little difficult to spot them and get the shot before they went under water again.

It was a nice sunset though, so even if I did not get the precise shot I was hoping for, it was a pretty sunset and that made for some nice photo opportunities. Continue reading

New Years Eve at the Redondo Beach Castle

In 2012, GotBaddog.com is planning on focusing more time promoting charity fundraisers and local events. To start this off, Tanya and I attended the Lady of Magic fundraiser at the Redondo Beach Castle, in Redondo Beach, CA. The fundraiser was for the Midnight Mission, which is a homeless shelter in downtown Los Angeles.

The Redondo Beach Castle is is owned by world-class magician and “Entertainers to the Stars” Sisuepahn Phila and Brian Gillis. It was a very nice party with live music provided by the Kevin McCarthy Concept, food, a DJ and some amazing magic. I did my best to give a feel of the magic, but these people are really good. It was also my first New Years with Tanya, so the magic was fitting.

By the way, if you are involved in fundraisers and want the coverage, please feel free to contact me. My social network links are on the right sidebar. Continue reading

Christmas morning bike ride

Regular readers to this blog have probably figured out that I have a few Christmas traditions that may not be your typical Norman Rockwell Christmas scenario. Of course, Norman Rockwell did not live by the Southern California beaches, so that might have something to do with it. Of all the traditions I have, the one that probably goes back the furthest is my Christmas morning bike ride. These are photos from that ride.

Since there are several shopping malls by me and the streets have been packed since Thanksgiving, I take advantage of the fact that the streets are virtually empty on Christmas morning and I go for a ride. This year, Tanya spent her first Christmas with me, so she went for her first Christmas morning ride. I have a feeling she will be joining me for years to come. Continue reading
