Coastal Greetings

Ever since I started collecting Pullip and Dal dolls, I've always wanted to add Dal Cinnamoroll to my collection. Alas, since I started collecting later on in the game, the original Dal Cinnamorall was out of my reach. So needless to say, I was quite ecstatic when I found out that a 10th anniversary version of Dal Cinnamoroll was being released! She finally arrived this past week, and I took her with us to the beach!
We decided to set out early to the beach and try another hand at shore fishing. It was just gorgeous out there! We all had a grand time and I caught my first halibut!

Flight Cadet

My bf and I have been wanting to visit this museum for awhile, but with the unusually hot weather we've been having, we have been postponing it since a portion of the planes are located outside of the hangars. Well, this past weekend, despite the triple digits weather and high humidity, we set our minds to go, and it was so worth it. Pullip Regeneration Paja thought so too. Some of the planes shown below were used in the movie "Pearl Harbor"! Other aircraft we saw there are considered the last ones remaining in the whole world and are even still flyable! Pretty amazing, say?

High Tide

Even though summer is winding down to an end, it still is rather hot over here in Southern California. With triple digit weather again this past weekend, my bf and I pushed aside the idea of doing another long hike and ventured over to our favorite beach. You can see from the pictures below why it still remains as our top "go to" place. Pullip Merl joined us, although she felt rather overdressed. She quickly changed her mind when we wandered over to the jetty and she saw how the waves were crashing about against the rocks. She was glad that I kept her high enough away from the sporadic splashes of water. My bf couldn't agree more since he ended up getting completely soaked. At least it gave us a few more things to giggle about. :D

Beautiful Mess

My bf and I like to venture out to various spots we find (other than the regular well known lakes, rivers, creeks, and of course, the ocean) and try a hand at fishing there. We like to dub them our "secret fishing spots", because, well, we don't really see anyone else at the same place and time when we are there so it is fun and peaceful, and it's rather nice that way! ;) So here are some pictures of one of our "secret fishing spots". It is rather funny because it is actually near a ditch that is connected to a creek so if you look closely at the picture of Dal Ichigo, you can see litter trapped in the tree lines when they were submerged under water during the heavier rainy season. It's somewhat interesting looking, and somewhat sad at the same time. Dal Ichigo appears to have the similar train of thought.....
The very last photo is of the clouds of smoke coming from the brush fire that broke out at one of our hiking/fishing spots last week. They say it is now 70% contained, so hopefully it will be fully contained soon.

On the Rocks

Continuing on with the multiple pictures concept, here is some footage from our trip last weekend. My bf and I had been to this same spot a couple of years ago, and decided to revisit it again. Good thing we did, because unfortunately, today a brush fire just broke out in the area we were hiking at last week.......... :(
I brought Dal Kanaria out with us. She didn't appear too cheery watching us fish though. It could have been because of the precarious looking birds flying overhead.....
