Father's Day 2021| COVID-19: Delta Variant Sweeps UK | Hiker Dies in Palm Canyon | San Diego Vaccines At Mickey D's | Sea Lion Rookery To Remain Open |


Happy Father's Day!! (Taken 4.16.21)

For Father's Day, we all went to my parents' house. I had heard about a BBQ package at Valley Farm in Spring Valley and it seemed like a great idea, so we ordered a few weeks back. I was a little nervous because we didn't really get any kind of confirmation until we got a reminder text yesterday. It included a whole rotisserie chicken, pulled pork, pork ribs, brisket, cole slaw, beans, mac n cheese, potato salad, and King's Hawaiian bread. 

For $100, it was a great deal, though if I were to reorder in the future, I would've doubled the mac n cheese and potato salad. But we were all happy in our meat-sweats and full bellies. It didn't even occur to me to take pictures of the food or my family, so instead you get this one from my sister's birthday a couple months ago. 

I also spent the day catching up with news and email so some of the news and links are from the past several days but still interesting, like the fact that the City of San Diego is not going to take up closing the sea lion rookery in La Jolla. I love the sea lions and I hate the people who get too close and feel the need for selfies and endanger the animals, but I also hate the way the Sierra Club decided to put themselves in charge and demand closure because you attach the word "attraction" to anything and you're talking about limited access and charging. First thing they could start with is new, clear signs around the area instead of the old, broken, missing, or faded ones that exist at the moment. Rangers and lifeguards could do a better job patrolling the area. Closing it off wouldn't be necessary if they did. 

Anyway, it's gonna be another busy week. I'll take another stab at listings this week, so reach out to me if you've got anything coming up. 

Stay safe out there.
