Putting all of my photos into one blog post would probably be a bit of a visual overload. Instead, I have here the first chunk (yes, that is the technical term) of shots from my week in California. These include the view from my bedroom window, a ping pong action shot, and a handful ofmy favorite photos from an afternoon on the lake in a speedboat.
I think the speedboat was my the highlight of my first few days there; my 14-year-old cousin kept beating me at ping pong, which took some of the fun out of it. Thankfully, I got my own back - and cemented my geek status - by totally kicking her butt at pong. Specifically, the hockey version of pong, on my uncle's Atari Flashback.
