Our creative team has put in tons of work as of late, and I wanted to take them away for a bit. I asked them “What did you guys want to do today”? Marilyn answers “How about Knotts Berry Farm”? I myself, haven’t been to Knotts in almost a decade. Tampon has never even been to this park in his lifetime. I then decided to just go along with it. We parked our cars over at Attic and attended “America’s 1st Theme Park” It was a great day of bonding, not talking about IMKING, rollercoaster riding, and going into a food coma. This park sure has changed since the last time I came.
Joy literally went on one ride the entire day… I thought I was the scaredy cat of the group, for rides.
Guess which rides I “didn’t” go on?
I’m around these talented photographers in the office that it requires me to step my game up. I took one of my weekends to go see things in downtown L.A. and what I could capture through my iPhone. It was nice to just wander to places I’ve never been and learn a little more about what beautiful things we have in L.A. I visited a cathedral, The Last Bookstore, Little Tokyo, and Angel’s Flight. I also made sure to eat at some of the gems in the city. Let’s see how much I’ve improved behind the lens.
After hours of driving by dirt and tumbleweeds, Matagi and I wanted to change up the scenery. Being the tourist that I am, I asked Matagi to take me to the Mystery Castle. With a diagnosis of tuberculosis and only six months to live, Boyce Luther Gulley disappeared, leaving his wife and three-year-old daughter, Mary Lou, and his home in Seattle, Washington to live by himself in Phoenix, Arizona. His six month prognosis extended to 15 years, and as he lived in Phoenix, Gulley built a Mystery Castle on rugged, rocky land located in the Foothills of South Mountain Park and fulfilled a promise to his daughter to build her a sturdy castle in the desert instead of a sand castle that washed away on the beach. Isn’t that sweet?
