Salvation Mountain off Highway 111

Salvation Mountain - Leonard Knight created this art piece as a tribute to God and his gift to the world with the powerful message: "God Is Love."  The message is clear throughout the man made mountain area that God is the way. The heart below reads, "Say, Jesus I am a sinner, please come upon my body and into my heart." This art piece is bright and colorful. 

Salvation Mountain is located in Imperial County, in the city of Niland. The drive is very interesting as you will see the Salton Sea and Date farms on your road trip. 

From Los Angeles or Phoenix, take Interstate 10 to the 86S (just east of Indio.) Travel south (11 miles) to 66th Avenue (Hwy 195.) There is a  big gas station and truck stop on the left. If you miss this turn, you'll end up on the wrong side of the Salton Sea. Turn left (east) and go about a ½ mile to Highway 111. Turn right (south) and go about 42 miles to Niland, California. Turn left (east) on Main Street (which eventually turns into Beal Road) and travel for a little over 3 miles. Look to the East. You absolutely cannot miss it.  
From San Diego or Yuma, take Interstate 8 to Highway 111 north. Niland is about 32 miles. Turn east on Main Street (turns into Beal Road) and go a little over 3 miles to Salvation Mountain.

This amazing art piece is literally in the middle of the desert.  Take water, snacks and make sure your gas tank is full.  Although town is only 3 miles from the site, there are very few stores and the nearest services are approximately 30-40 miles away.  It was very hot the day we traveled so make sure you leave early enough in the AM to arrive before the peak afternoon heat.  There are a few residents nearby in mobile trailers however most appeared vacant because it was mid week when we arrived. 

Remember that God is love. 

Happy travels!!!

Drivers beware kids are watching you text and drive.

My kids love to play video games as they sit in the back of our car while we run errands.   One day, I decided that the kids needed to leave their video games at home to be more present.  I wanted them to enjoy the view outside.  I asked them to look for plants, birds and just everyday life.   All of this in the hopes to get them engaged and thinking creatively.  What I would find out is that my kids are super funny and my parenting skills would be tested.

As soon as the observation began, the kids noticed that drivers seemed to forget that other people could see inside their cars. The first thing they noticed was a driver picking her nose and eating her boogers. “Mom! Mom! Mom! That driver just ate her boogers!”, said my son.  I responded by saying, “Aaugh, WHAT? Please tell me that you are trying to be funny!”  My son replied, “No mom, it really happened!”  I stated, “Okay, let’s look away and not make a big deal.”  I wanted to laugh but I couldn’t. With a straight face I tried to change the subject by asking them to look for specific street signs.
Of course, now they were very interested in looking out the windows with eager excitement to find more wrong doings.  On our trip, the kids saw people texting and driving, people falling asleep at the wheel, feet on the dashboard, and fellow drivers weaving in and out of traffic as though we were on a racetrack. We were even witness to an Angry Bird moment, yes, the flipping of the bird!  The worst was a pedestrian stumbling across a crosswalk with his eyes rolling back, most likely from taking drugs.  Each time they saw something out of the ordinary, there were more questions.  Some of their questions were hard to answer.  My response was usually, “Adults are responsible for their own actions.”  Another answer I gave was, “People make mistakes all the time.” When I couldn't answer their question, like the guy on drugs, I said, “Let’s pray for him.”

That day, we had many open conversations about adults making bad decisions and being unsafe on the road. One of the biggest questions they had was regarding people driving and texting. It was clear to the kids, those drivers who texted, drove erratically and were being very unsafe.  I explained to them that sometimes people break the law because they think nothing bad will happen and no one is watching. 

It goes without saying, I am now happy to let the kids use their video games on our car trips.  It’s less stressful for me while I avoid drivers who text.  By the way, texting and driving looks just like a drunk driver behind the wheel.  Please stay safe and do not text while you drive.

Aquarium of the Pacific Whale watching!

Whale watching with Aquarium of the Pacific staff and Harbor Breeze Cruises is always an adventure that you won't soon forget. We have been whale watching for almost (3) three years now. Every year we secretly wish the whales come closer to the boat. This year our wish came true. 
We weren’t prepared for the encounter. As we sat on left side of the boat just enjoying the ocean breeze, when we saw the blow hole and spray come up alongside the boat what seemed only feet away. Of course, I screamed the kids just laughed. Okay, the whale was way to close for comfort. 
The other passengers did not see this happen because they were all at the front end of the boat looking for whales. The truth is the boat was surrounded by them on the day we traveled. We saw whales near the Palos Verdes Peninsula as a baby whale and her mother made their presence known on another side of the boat.  There were several moments we did not know which whale to follow with our eyes. The kids and I had a great time enjoying the search for the giant of the ocean.  It was an experience we won’t soon forget. 

Whale watching has been part of our yearly family field trip since 2013 and let me tell you that it is a must do. The kids now look forward to doing some whale spotting while discussing what the ocean means to us. It’s a fun family time just hanging in the middle of the ocean for a few hours. The memories we have shared and created through this field trip is out of this world. 

We are so thankful for the educational opportunities the Aquarium of the Pacific and Harbor Breeze Cruises has opened to us. Their programs and events have been instrumental in educating us on ocean life and loving the ocean.
The Aquarium is offering Job Shadow classes this summer and fall. This includes interacting with animals and the staff who cares for them. It is a unique learning opportunity for young adults. Classes start August 6th, 2016 at 9am.  To attend the class advance purchase is required.  Please go to their website for more details.

Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, King of the Missions.

Travel to San Diego and experience a piece of history. California is home to 21 Spanish Missions that were instrumental in changing history. One of them is Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, which is considered the king mission. Between 1769 and 1833, Spain established Catholic outposts known as Missions to introduce Christianity to the Native Americans. Today, we can visit this historical place and take a peek into the past.

Mission San Luis Rey de Francia is located 4050 Mission Avenue, Oceanside, CA 92057.

What you should know before you visit.

History: Mission San Luis Rey de Francia in Oceanside (San Diego) -SECULARIZATION IN THEORY AND PRACTICE. The first Spanish Franciscans to enter Upper California had intended to turn the local hunter-gatherer people into farmers, ranchers, craftsmen, and faithful practicing Catholic Christians. From the Franciscan point of view, mission lands and other secular properties were being held in trust until such time as the Indians became “people of reason” and full citizens of the Spanish Empire. The promise that mission lands would be returned to the Indians was codified by decree of the Spanish Cortes in 1813. That promise was also implied in a number of laws passed by the Mexican government in the 1820s and 1830s. 
Walking through this holy site you can feel the past wanting to be uncovered. The cemetery is located next door to the church. As you walk inside the cemetery, you can see the names of the past residents who once cared for the mission. The dates on some of the headstones date back to 1830. Among the buried are many Native Americans who lived inside the mission. It is a beautiful place, yet you could feel the sadness. Downhill from the Mission, you will find the Lavanderia. Native Americans would use this station for laundry washing, and watering the fields and gardens. They hosted a water system that sustained the entire mission.
Within the Lavanderia, there remains many reminders of the early California's. We found fruit trees, cactus and other plants that might have been used as a food source for the Native Americans and the Catholic priests / Franciscan. 
The Native American tribes that lived in the area were the Shoshone/ Luiseño & Diegueño Mission Indians / Native Americans. In the museum, you will find many artifacts that remain as reminders of the work these Native Americans were tasked to do. Building, cooking and maintaining the grounds was the responsibility of the Native Americans. They were also instrumental in keep outsiders from invading the area. 

The mission serves as great reminder of our California history. Today, you can visit the mission and even go on retreat. The mission hosts many events including a Pow Wow. It is a great place to spend a Saturday wondering the grounds and remembering the people that made history. If you visit remember to pack a picnic lunch and bring cash for the museum. Enjoy your adventure and travel often. 

Hours: Monday – Friday, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Last self-guided tour begins at 4:30 p.m.

Anaheim Packing District near Disneyland.

Anaheim Packing District offers food experiences like no other in Orange County. Here, you can find Grill Cheese sandwiches, Comfort Foods, Vietnamese Summer Rolls and Mexican street tacos. It reminded us of vintage Los Angeles because of the boutique style eateries. Walking through the  Anaheim Packing District, we could see large seating areas filled with people eating and socializing. Locals come to find bites that remind them of home cooking. Others visit to try fancy drinks and gelato.  The Snow Monster offers teas and lemonades with cotton candy. Pop Bar offers gelato on a stick which reminds me of Mexican Paletas covered in chocolate and other toppings. These two places are very popular with the young at heart. 

Located: 440 South Anaheim Blvd., Anaheim, CA 92805.
We suggest that you walk around and take a peek before choosing a place to eat. Try several places, we suggest that you order family style and share. We did on our visit and it proved to be a very good experience. There were no left overs and the entire family had a unique foodie adventure.

The OC Register says:"The Anaheim Packing District is an open, airy culinary marketplace with soaring ceilings and suspended air plants. The renovated citrus processing plant is 42,000-square-feet. The building was restored using $9 million in redevelopment funds."

Restaurants at the Packing House and their website to help plan your visit. 
History: In 1915, there were over 20,000 acres of orange groves in Orange County. By 1936, Orange County supplied approximately one-six of the nation's Oranges - Valencia crop. Orange County once hosted over five million citrus trees that included Lemons, grapefruit and limes. When you visit Anaheim Packing District look for the railroad tracks that carried citrus gold. Have fun in your travels!!!

Cutting the Cord from Cable TV

This past Christmas, I decided there was plenty of options for television and started looking into cutting our reliance on cable TV.  You know, that $150 -$200 dollar expense every month that is similar to your daily fix, also known as a large Mocha Latte for $4.95 / day.
Photo credit: Roku
Our family is locked into the Cox Communications family because of our location.  Unfortunately, there are no other competitors to provide even an ounce of savings to subscribers locally.  My guess is you are a family member to Time Warner, U-Verse, Cox, Dish or Direct TV or if outside of California, you have one service provider for your city.  All of these companies look forward to creating a bundle package including high speed Internet and Phone services in order to increase revenue.  These companies coax you in by offering you a deeply discounted monthly rate for bundling these services for 1 year however lock you in for a 2 year commitment.  On the 13th month of your contract however, the monthly service fee doubles. As a result of many years of paying ridiculous cable bills, I decided to start looking around for options.

In the past, options have been limited however shifts in programming are helping consumers more and more.  We invested in two Roku boxes for both of our TVs then purchased monthly subscriptions to Netflix and Hulu.  We went out to purchase an indoor amplified TV antenna however we are too far away from the towers to easily obtain local HD programming over the air waves.  Instead of installing an outdoor antenna, we continued paying our cable company for services.  Soon, we found ourselves reaching for the Roku remote more and more accessing last weeks TV episodes on Hulu by ABC, NBC, and CBS and getting extremely invested in Netflix Original Programming like Longmire, Bloodline and more.  Don't get me wrong, we still used our cable box for our favorites like Family Feud and reruns of Mike and Molly on channel 9.  And who could miss, Judge Judy and The Peoples Court!  Not us!!! is an exciting day for the tech geek I am.  Alma just looks at me with a "What is your problem!" kind of stare, but I have learn to move past it continuing with my excited "boy with a new toy" demeanor.  Sony PlayStation has release in the greater Los Angeles area, check your area for availability, PlayStation Vue.  Vue is Live TV and host to previously run episodes of all of your favorite cable TV channels / shows for a very affordable price, Pricing is as follows, 60 channels for $40, 75 channels for $45 and 100 channels for $55.  For sometime now, the only way your could access VUE was through your Sony PlayStation system.  However, the price is not the only exciting piece of this story....NOW everyone can access PlayStation VUE through their Roku and Android applications.  Additional devices include Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Chromecast, IPad, and IPhone.  A High Speed Internet connection is required and you should check with your service provider on download speeds to ensure you have enough bandwidth to be able to access TV on all of your devices.  Take into account your children may be on the internet doing homework or playing video games while your wife watches The Shahs of Sunset in the family room and you watch The Olympic Games in Rio.

I can tell you this, we just started our 7 day free trial of PlayStation Vue and it is great.  You can watch live TV or scroll through your favorite programs for an episode you missed last week.  Do you have a new show that you haven't seen but your co-workers are talking about?  Start at season one and catch up with your friends using Play Station Vue.  There are add on options including Showtime, Epix and other add ons available for an additional charge. 

Guess where I will be this weekend?  "HELLO COX! HERE ARE YOUR CABLE BOXES!  I WOULD LIKE TO...."  If you have some favorite shows, enjoy them at your convenience and when your busy schedule allows.  Cut the cable cord and save yourself money with the help of PlayStation Vue!  Start your free trial today at PlayStation Vue.

Local farms that offer pick your own produce.

Our kids are fruit and veggie experts! Okay, maybe not experts but they do love eating fruits and vegetables that they harvest themselves.  This is why we enjoy shopping for produce at local farms when ever possible. Southern California offers many opportunities for the public to harvest and buy their own fruit and vegetables on local farms. On a recent visit to a local farm, we found beautiful onions growing near a berry bush and a 80 year old fig tree. 
When we ran through the farm fields, we noticed how the dirt, the fruits and vegetables gave off a flavorful aroma.  It appears that fresh produce does have a fragrance.  It smells like fresh cut grass and fresh rain.  Dependent on the farm, you can smell the strawberries growing from blocks away.  One of my kids said that it smelled like earth on a good day. 
South Coast Farm in San Juan Capistrano grows berries, tomatoes, peaches, fennel, onions, basil and figs.  Their main crop is strawberries where you can harvest yourself at $2.99 per pound.  As we explored their place, we noticed the beauty of growing crops.  Each plant was more beautiful than the next. The basil plants spoke to us in a very aromatic way.  Our noses led us to where they resided.  Both kids were surprised at how much they liked basil nearly immediately based on the aroma.  We then ran into Fennel, which is a bush like root vegetable.  It was the first time we had the pleasure of seeing it grow from under the ground. 
After we finished picking our strawberries, we visited the store to pay for our harvest.  It was filled with on-site grown fruits and veggies for sale.  The farm offered other organic products such as ginger, radishes, cilantro, citrus and squash.  Produce is picked for sale the same day, which means you get the freshest pick of the crop that day. 
We want to invite you to visit your local farm and support them. The prices sometimes are not the best deal in town however you must remember the following.  The product is always premium quality, freshly picked and vine ripened versus picked two weeks ahead of schedule and ripened in cardboard crates while being imported from Ecuador.  You can find a local farm by visiting the pick your own website at:

Southern California offers several farms that you will enjoy visiting. Here is list of the farms that we have visited.

Cabrillo National Monument

One of the most visited national parks is located right here in San Diego. The Cabrillo National Monument receives over 215,000 visitors every year from people that come from all over the world to experience a piece of history as well as to take in beautiful scenic views. While we were there, we met people from France and Germany that had travelled to experience this one of a kind American National Park.

Meet the Rocky Intertidal Zone - You will have to arrive early to see the tide pools located at the Cabrillo National Monument California. Parking is very limited and there is walking involved to reach this beautiful beach. Cabrillo National Monument says, "The word “intertidal” refers to the unique ecosystem that lies between the high and low tides along the shore. Tide pools are depressions where water is trapped during low tides, forming small pools of water that provide habitat for numerous plants, invertebrates, and fish. On the day we visited, we found lots of dead shell fish right on the shore. It was a shocking sight to see the beach area filled with dead sea life. Oddly enough the dead shell fish did not have a foul odor. Our family explored the area briefly and then we headed up to the Cabrillo Statue. Beware: This is Federal property which is heavily monitored by video camera by the US Navy.  Do NOT take any plants or marine animals from this area.  Sever penalties and/or jail time can and will be imposed for failing to follow these rules.
Travel back in time to learn why Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo is an important person in history. The Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo Statue is located next to the visitor center. Stop by the visitor center first and get a glimpse into the life of a "Conquistador". Here you will see a great view of  the city and the Pacific Ocean. Standing there, just image how it must have looked when the conquistador's first arrived in the year 1542. The visitor center can guide you on visiting the Point Loma Lighthouse and give a list of events for the day.

Tijuana Estuary located in Imperial Beach, California.

California is a beautiful state that offers many outdoor adventures. One of them is located on the furthest South West corner of the United States in the city of Imperial Beach, California. Here  you can explore the Tijuana Estuary where fresh water and salt water meet.  Besides it being a beautiful place to visit, the Tijuana Estuary provides many important elements to our Earth and to the local environment.  As you walk through the estuary, it is evident that they act as sponges by absorbing water and acting as flood controls. 
This is a well-known place to find the endangered Light-Footed Clapper Rail.  Several species of other migratory birds come to rest and find food. On our visit, we found several different types of birds and wildlife singing and catching food.

Try stand up paddle boarding this summer.

Stand up paddle boards (SUP) are a great way to have fun enjoying the water. They can be used on a lake or a marina / beach area.  We recently visited the Pirate Paddle Company located in Newport Beach, California.

Safety was key for all the participants and before kids could ride they were instructed on how to be safe in the water.  On this adventure, the team brought out their 20 person party paddle board so all of the kids could be part of the fun as a group.  It was fun and exciting.

Where they are located: Paddle boarding is a sport that is great for almost anyone who enjoys nature and exercise. The sport requires you use your stomach muscle as you balance and paddle your way through the gentle waters of Back Bay in Newport Beach.

Struggle no more with Skoop.

The struggle to maintain good health is getting easier with diet and exercise. I have been trying meditation and yoga to help me get back to good health. I also started drinking Skoop at least two or three times a week replacing them for a heavy meals. I am not going to lie to you, it is hard to get into a routine when you have a young family and a busy schedule. The good news, I did it!  By drinking Skoop, I lowered my sugar intake, chloesterol and blood pressure.  My doctor was happy with my recent blood test results. She is a wonderful caring physician and we have been together 12 years. She loved my blood test results this time around. My sugar levels are much, much better than before and she told me to keep up the good work. Yay!!!
My kids and the husband are not yet on board with the Skoop because they are big meat eaters. I am hoping to change them this summer after they see how well I am doing on Skoop.  

My secret weapon is Skoop, which is a plant based protein that blends well with fruit and veggies. I also use almond milk and a little Nutella. It helps prevent high sugar levels and getting sick from them. This super food powder travels well and there is no need to get fancy with ingredients just add a little almond milk. 

If you are struggling with sugar levels and health issues then try Skoop as a snack. Next, try it as a meal replacement. To start, do not go over board. Start using the product in moderation. Remember Rome was not built in one day. I am taking it slow and trying out different ways of adding Skoop to my meal planning so I can stick with it. I am not going to lie, my skin looks better and I feel lighter.  Most importantly, others are starting to notice. 

Disclaimer: Skoop mailed me samples to review 90 days ago. My doctor took blood tests 30 days ago and confirmed a better sugar level for me. I do not give medical advice. This is my personal experience. All thoughts and ideas are all my own. Consult with your medical doctor if you have any questions.
