Strictly Sail Long Beach Harbor Tour

Last week Strictly Sail Long Beach was held at Shoreline Village. Sailing is a big mystery to me so I was excited to check it out (I was given free admission). There were lots of booths, even more sailboats and hands on demonstrations. My absolute favorite part was a harbor cruise on the catamaran Bama Breeze.

It was early evening and the weather was absolutely perfect – crisp, cool and slightly cloudy. My friend and I spent most of the voyage sitting on the front (bow?) of the boat and taking in our beautiful surroundings.

This is why I love Southern California.

    How very cool! I love going out on boats, as long as the water is calm. Otherwise it’s not a pretty picture 😉

The Big Bang Theory Exhibit at Gallery Nucleus

Yup, that’s the portrait Amy gave Penny in a memorable episode. Nope, I didn’t sneak on the studio lot to see it. It’s actually on view for the public to see at the latest exhibition at Gallery Nucleus –  The Physics of Friendship: A Tribute to Big Bang Theory.

While there is memorabilia on display, the show is actually focused on artwork inspired by Sheldon, Leonard, Penny and the rest of the gang. Here’s some of my favorite pieces.
