WanderFood Wednesday: wait for it...

Happiness is plucking a juicy, ripe, red strawberry off a plant in your own backyard, before the birds and squirrels get to it.

so close!

This one is juuuuuuuuuust about ready. It's been taunting me from out on our deck for about a week now. I can see it from my kitchen window. So close!

Ah, the yearnings of springtime.

Technically, this post is a bit of a stretch for WanderFood Wednesday, since I didn't even leave my house. But I'm pretty sure anyone who saw me on the deck this morning, in a bathrobe, meticulously photographing this strawberry, would strongly recommend a trip to the looney bin. So there you go.

Hop on over to Wanderlust & Lipstick's WanderFood Wednesday for more mouth-watering travel foodie posts.

Photo Friday: make a run for the border

US-Mexico border fence
US-Mexico border, um, fence?

With all the recent talk of immigration reform, I thought I'd post a few Photo Friday pics from our recent brush with the border. While we were out visiting the Jacumba Hot Springs, about an hour outside San Diego, my aunt took us on a short detour to see The Border. It was kinda trippy.


Auntie, Mark, and oktapodi consider making a run for it


even crappier fencing, and the Border Patrol on the hill

At one segment, there's this weird porous fencing with metal beams. (Someone speculated it may be designed that way in case of flooding. Who knows?) Then there's another segment with flimsy corrugated metal sheets. And the Border Patrol, in their shiny SUVs, are omnipresent.


warning! warning!

the Mexican side actually looks quite lovely, through the fence, anyway

I was expecting to get stopped for taking photos, but I guess we didn't look suspicious enough.

More photos from our spectacular San Diego junket coming soon, I promise! In the meantime, please check out the fabulous travel photos at Delicious Baby's Photo Friday.
