Road-trippin'

Do you like Road-trips?  Rob and I have enjoyed them very much these days.  We've been experimenting with what we really need to take with us, how to pack the car, and of course what snacks to throw in the cooler.  We have set some new goals of trying to spend minimally and find places to explore right around us. 

While driving on the open road there are so many beautiful moments that pass by ... I find myself always trying to capture them all ... click click click.

I am still learning what would be the best lens option I pack for a trip.  On this trip I tried to only bring two lenses, my Nikon D300s 18-200mm and my 85mm.   

One of the highlights as always was the drive on highway 1.  The views of the mountains and beaches keep going and going for what seems like forever ... It takes a little longer on the coastal highway, but it always seems to be worth it. 

A few places we stopped along the way:

Every time I see a vintage VW beetle I have flashbacks of the good memories driving my first car.  Remembering the sounds of the car ... riding around my neighborhood with friends and playing all old mix-tapes.  It also makes me think about spending time with my dad ... him teaching me and learning about my car, keeping it clean and taking care of it .... it was always enjoyable and something that I'll never forget.  Thank you Papa!

Once we arrived Encinitas we stopped by Old Town San Diego too.  If you have time, you should definetly check it out.  Admission is free and you can spend as much time as you want  exploring around.  Fun for me to just walk around and see all these old houses ... trying to imagine the way life was back then and picture it in my mind.

These lovely chairs are so cool.  I respect the detail and craftsmanship it took to make these wonderful pieces.  So much use over the years and still in such wonderful condition.  I also noticed I can't stop taking pictures of them ... so many pictures of chairs .. lol
