Cars, cars, and more cars

This past Saturday, we passed through Monterey, CA, en route to a getaway in Carmel-by-the-Sea. We stumbled upon the classic cars showing all along Cannery Row as part of their Cherry's Jubilee event. Here's Tomokee in front of a Mustang Boss 302.

And here he is in front of another classic car painted in a great color.

Lion Dance

A Chinese merchant will often times have a lion dance troupe perform before opening a new business to the public because the lion dance is believed to bring good fortune. The Sunset District in San Francisco has quite a few shops run by Chinese propietors. Tomokee is viewing the lion dance ceremony at the opening of a yogurt shop. He didn't even mind the loud firecracker noises that are a part of the ceremony.
