One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

2010 Ocean Beach Street Fair/Festival

This past weekend was a busy one. There were many things to do in this town I call home, San Diego. And this post is about the Ocean Beach Street Fair & Chili Cook-Off Festival on Saturday, June 26th 2010. It was some last minute planning, but decided to make the trip out there to try some chili and listen to some bands play. So, here are some photos...

There were lots of things to do and see. Things that range from live music and entertainment, rides, showcased talented artists, vendors, a refreshing beer garden, the chili cook-off, and more. So why not come right? Well, it sure seems that a whole bunch of people thought the way we did and flocked from all corners of San Diego to make a day in Ocean Beach. But my plan was to basically hit-up the chili cook-off to taste some awesomely delicious samples. Click on the images for more photos of the event...

I forgot where the next photo (below) of some chili came from, but this was my favorite. It must be the cilantro that sang to me. I just love cilantro! I was surprised how my body reacted to the chili's in general. I don't take spices well and tend to sweat a bucket when I do. Well, I did sweat, but not as much as I usually do. We've tried a whole bunch of them and still had extra tickets that weren't being used. But alas, it was time for some regular food, or at least dessert. And you know me, I love me some dessert.

The dessert above is from Chunk-n-Chip Cookies. On their tent, is says "artisan ice cream sandwiches...with warm cookies. YUM!!" And YUM it was. I had the "Mumbo Jumbo", chocolate brownie and peanut butter cup ice cream. It tasted so good in this warm weather even though there was an overcast. The sun started to pop out around this time. And our timing was perfect. But then again, ice cream and cookies are great anytime.

I wanted to take more photos, but when you're having fun, you tend to forget the camera that's hanging around your next. At least that was the case for me. Also, the crowds started to get bigger and that made it a bit harder to take some photos I wanted to get. I had a great time and can't wait for 2011 Ocean Beach Street Fair and Chili Cook-Off to begin. So, I'll be there next year, for sure...
