Of course, this was the weekend that Patrick decided he wanted to go to Disneyland to ride his birthday rides by himself. I should have protested more, except that after a very, very warm week, the temperature was pretty decent.
Plus...Food and Wine Festival. :-)
I had a lobster lollipop -- and, coming from someone with huge texture issues with most seafood, I must say: yum! (It could be that I will eat anything that's been fried and covered in panko, but who knows?)
But, knowing that I'd be stressed as the time ticked slowly by, I did something I haven't done in a really long time -- I rode absolutely no rides and just wandered around with my SLR, with 75-300 lens attached, and took lots and lots of pictures (which are very SLOOOOLY being transferred over to poor Data, because my old card reader does not fit with my new computer -- a situation I must remedy forthwith, because it already drained one battery...which is what I get for shooting about half the pictures in RAW because the stupid camera kept popping up the totally unnecessary flash).
Anyway, took lots and lots of pictures, some of which I will upload three months from now when the camera is done importing them. I had so much fun, I'll probably go back in a few weeks with the kit lens (35 - 70ish, I think) attached to get some of the wider shots.
