Family Style

This is a restaurant called Tommy V's located in the Bressi Ranch area of Carlsbad.  Last year, this was the setting for a reality show called Family Style on the Food Network.  It followed the brother/sister owners of the restaurant. I am not sure if the show is coming back for another season but we enjoyed watching it just because we recognized all the locations.

Humming birds are very common around here.  I found this nest in the neighborhood.  These eggs are so small.  I had to take the picture quick because Mama bird came home and was not happy to find me near her babies.

Mineral Water

Apparently at one point in time, Carlsbad was famous for it's mineral water.  The man who discovered the source of the mineral water is also one of the founder's of the City of Carlsbad.  Who knew?  I didn't.  Until I saw this statue just a few blocks from the main downtown area.  His name is John A. Frazier.  The mineral water source has been re-opened and you can get your fill here.  I'll have to try this out some day.
