Things to do on a Saturday!

Tall Ships this weekend at the Port of Los Angeles is already in high gear according to this LA Times Travel article:
Festival of Sail 2008
"From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, tall ships will do battle on the not-so-high seas, purportedly "fighting it out for control of L.A. Harbor," according to the festival's website.."

We've already missed the parade of tall ships on Friday, however there's more fun to be had all day Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th. I've personally attended this event in both San Francisco and in LA at San Pedro. It's fun touring these beautiful historical vessels. If you don't get a chance this weekend, the next stop on the tour is San Diego, the weekend of the 20th.

Also this weekend is the beginning of Nisei Week. You'll be hearing more about that elsewhere I'm sure.. but it's an event that kicks off Saturday and includes the annual Parade Sunday evening... I'm looking forward to that!

Saturday night is also another big night for EVFA as he's opening yet another show at his gallery, featuring a solo exhibit of Michael Snow. The reception is tonight from the 16th of August from 7-11pm.. more info can be found at EVFA website.

I just don't know where you get all of your energy. The art walk one night, events this weekend, going here and there.

I'm glad you do have that energy, however, because I then have the chance to participate in those activities vicariously through your blog. You're better than a sea cruise!

ehh! I don't have near as much energy as you might think. Art walk kicked my butt... and my feet still hurt. *whine*

Plan to do the Tall Ships at San Pedro so maybe I'll have some good stuff from that or an unexpected adventure along the way.. ;)

I wish you were here I'd be having more fun & good times. I'm grateful for the good times I have had though. =) *hugs*
