The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego was founded in 1941 and has a collection of more than 4,000 works created after 1950 in its location in La Jolla, California and it’s second location in downtown San Diego. The MCASD reflects an artistic program that encourages promising emerging artists and recognizes mid-career artists whose works need more visibility.
Walk on the Beach
I am back in Carlsbad, California for the Easter holidays. There was no marine layer this morning which made it a gorgeous sunny morning (at 19C degrees) for a walk on Tamarack Beach. Making it into Zagat’s “8 Hottest Restaurants in San Diego” for 2013, Rakiraki is a ramen house in the Convoy area that is attracting a lot of attention — especially for its ramen burger (think ramen instead of buns)!
Eggs, Tacos, Pasta & Cupcakes
Not necessarily in one sitting, in one day, nor in that order! Brunch with a view: Caroline’s Seaside Cafe is located in the UC San Diego Scripps Institute of Oceanography campus in La Jolla. Set in a relaxed contemporary interior design, the cafe and patio offers a view of the ocean (and the surfers). Owned by chef Giuseppe Ciuffa, the cafe serves brunch on weekends and is also open for breakfast and lunch on weekdays. Two food spots featured in restauranteur Guy Fieri’s TV show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives are Haggo’s Organic Taco and Spirito’s Italian Diner. Haggo’s in Leucadia…
Biking in Carlsbad
Both serious and not-so-serious cyclists were out this morning by the coast — together with surfers, joggers and walkers. I was breaking-in my new Trek hybrid, which has “forced” me to finally be back on the saddle after a few years of pause. The marine layer precluded the sunny skies this morning.
A fresh start: a new year, a new blog. I am looking forward to a year of travels. No definite plans – will see where it takes me.
