hang10tiki you make the necklace look good.

Tiki Ano I'm so glad we were able to hook up. I hope you'll post of photo of you with the mug here on my thread. Thank you for the glaze, I'll find a good project for it.

We are exhausted and turning in for the night. San Diego to Elk Grove in one shot. It's good to be home. I see a lot of glazing sitting on the table waiting for us.

I'll have photos tomorrow of Tiki Oasis. We had another wonderful trip filled with hugs and smiles. Cheers, Wendy

WENDY! I'm sorry I missed your birthday, and it looks like you had an absolutely wonderful time. May everyday be that happy. It looks like you are keeping up quite well producing some wonderful pieces. Your Bob's are absolutely fantastic. And really, you're the only reason I got a pair of actual Bobs from the Bal'i Hai in New Orleans a few months ago. I didn't much like Bob for a really long time until I saw yours. Uke Bob V2 turned out great, as did all the PNG-ish Bobs. I can't wait to get another one of your mugs. Unfortunately, getting laid off is really the pits, and I can't wait to be fiscally solvent again. Ah well. Keep on working, and making beautiful things! Everybody loves them. In fact, I was performing at HRHH this past weekend, and Maddy and I took our engagement mugs. I was selling merchandise at my booth, which I share with PopTiki, and he had a few skull mugs out. Well, Maddy and I had ours out, and people kept picking them up, and cooing, and aww'ing, and asking how much they were. One person nearly spilled my drink all over us! Everybody loved them, and I spent quite a bit of time telling them about your mugs.

Dan! I'm glad your knee is feeling better. As someone with joint pain like that, I know what a bear it can be. I hope it keeps on, and you keep in the best of health, my friend. I'm thoroughly jealous of your recent finds. That Marq is out of this world! And the pedigree! I hope you snapped a photo of the photo that wasn't for sale. Wow, what a find. And a ton of recent Kava Men. Very cool. I hope to see all of the photographs taken of your collection. Well, and of course, visit it in person one day.

A-loha!

PS - Have a blast at Tiki O! I wish I was there, but alas, it's not in the cards this year.
---------------------

Hale Tiki so sorry I missed your post last night. We have lots of friends that have been laid off recently and I was so sad to hear you have added to that list which includes members of our family. We wish you the best of luck in finding your next place. They would be lucky to have you.

Thank you for encouraging me and flattering me and making Dan feel good about his recent tiki finds. I love hearing about your mugs. We loved your designs too and I'm glad I could make them for you. Please post photos here when you have time. I'd like to see them in the wild.

Dan did well hobbling around Oasis. I'm going to unload my photos now and find some of the best to post. We had wonderful hugs but not near enough time to visit with friends. It was a lot of hugs and its good to see you and then on to the next hugs. GROG and little lost tiki are great huggers. HB tiki gave us a precious gift that I'll post. So many to mention. I better get working.

I'll be back later, Wendy

Wow, I took 349 photos during our trip. Good thing I only post a few because most of them you wouldn't want to see. I'm going to do them in sections. We had a great trip.

Today I'll show the Tiki Oasis Art Show 2013










It's always fun to catch someone taking a close look at your art.


Zerostreet.


Over the top great. I kept going back to look.


This is his business card.


All the artists that could met up for a meet and greet.


John Moulder and friend.


I'm with Miss Tiki Oasis 2013.


Big Toes art sold super fast.


Thank you for the visit, Wendy

Yes Wendy, it was great to see you and Dan. I am curious how much stuff Dan walked away with from this weekend. I know I walked away with quite a bit of cool mugs and artwork. Glad you made it home safely and quickly.

Zero Tiki, first off I have to confess to you that even though I took your card to Oasis that in the mad party that it was I forgot to say hi to everyone for you. I really had big plans to do that and to get a great photo of hugging GROG. Neither happened. So to all of you who know Zero Tiki and missed him at Oasis he said HI to all of you!

MadDogMike you are so right Mike. You are a great hugger. I just didn't get near enough photos.

lunavideogames Dan is running around finding places for his tiki loot. I'll eventually have photos of the best pieces and I'll post them here including the Ocean Beach lamps. I was happy to see you too.

zerostreet you are welcome. There was so much great art this year it was super to be allowed to exhibit there.
----------------------------

Today I want to back up to the beginning of our trip. I have family in Monticeto and we stopped for lunch there and then continued on to Ventura. We spent the night there so we could visit Ventiki the next day.


Here's Ventura Beach. It was overcast and cool. We have attended Tiki Oasis when it was 105 out. This year the entire week was in the 70's. It was the best ever.


On the patio of the hotel they used coconut shells to hold the drink menus. Clever.


When we were looking up Ventiki we found this place in the phone book. Too bad it was closed on Monday or we would have gone there.


Ventiki was easy to spot.


It was done up really well.


I felt right at home when I saw the wall mural outside. I just happened to have photos of my Zombie mug and even a photo of Sven with it.


The menu.


Dan scored a mug. Hey, I just saw my reflection in the window.


Inside was just as fun as the outside.






I got back to work yesterday on the Sacramento Crawl mug. When I finish all the Tiki Oasis posts I'll be ready to start showing my art work.

Thank you all so much for the visit. Hugs, Wendy

Wendy, thanks for posting some (of your many) photos- great seeing you & Dan (as well as Mike and everyone else, of course). I will take some photos with Ukulele Bob soon. Your painting for the Art Show looked even better in person (for those that weren't there), great job! Thanks for all the kind words, too.

Glad you made it home safe- along with all of the booty collected on your trip! Look forward to seeing more photos from your trip!

TikiAno I thank you for the kind words and for the glaze. I've done the test strip to glaze with some of the crawl mugs. It was a treat to meet up with you.

-------------------
-------------------

For the next set of photos I've chosen to show you our visits to the Bali Hai. We didn't go to the Thursday night event. Instead we went there for one lunch and one happy hour preceding the first night party. I am hard of hearing and to preserve what hearing I have left I avoid loud noise that comes with live music. Here are our two visits.

As we approach the Bali Hai you can see the Goof on the Roof who has one red eye.


The grounds have a few short garden walks.


We had a romantic lunch.


The view was of San Diego and the dock.


The best part is that there are tikis everywhere. Tiki Diablo sold a mug of this tiki at Oasis.


I love large leaves and Dan too!


This is the back of the restaurant. We sat at one of these windows.


This is the view of San Diego.


Dan and Mr. Bali Hai.


The food is good here, the place so full of tikis and history. It's on Shelter Island.

More work today. I also need to buy more glaze. The crawl mugs are so large that they are sucking up glaze at 3 times the usual rate.

Cheers, Wendy

Thanks hang10tiki, it's one of my favorite photos from the trip.

My goal with these vacation photos is to give everyone an overview of the San Diego area and the event. There is so much to see and do that arriving early makes the trip complete. Here are some odds and ends and then I'll get back to the hotel and event tomorrow.

Just driving around town there is a lot to see. We took the free bridge to Coronado Island.

The famous Hotel Coronado.

Leaving.

The view of the island and San Diego from the bridge.


We wanted to go to Mission Beach to pick up some tikis for ebtiki which were at Freaky Boutiki.
Here's the outside of the store.

Inside I grabbed the bag and took off.

At the tourist end we found this miniature tiki golf place.

I would like to build these in my backyard.

Not bad, I mean Dan of course.

We didn't go indoors, maybe next time.

Then we had lunch at a place called Breakfast on the Beach.


Next up was Seaport Village.

We watched this man balance these rocks. We did donate to take the photos.

I missed the shot but you should have heard everyone scream when a bird lit on top of one of the rocks. Nope it didn't fall.

We didn't get our parking validated when we bought a hot dog and a nose pencil sharpener. This was a mistake. Parking for 50 minutes cost $8.00.

Now it was time to visit Balboa Park and the Museum of man. However we saw these new moms exercising in front of a different museum and thought how funny.

The top of the museum.

Everywhere we looked we were reminded of tiki. How many bowls do you have that resemble this?

The guy in the back corner looked like my cannibal woman in the pot.

Dan and a relative.

This is very similar to MadDogMike's cannibal swap skull. The card said some survived this surgery. Just think no anesthesia!


I need to go glaze crawl mugs before it heats up outside too much so I'll stop now. I hope it's ok to share our vacation with you all. I really enjoy posting and sharing these. Thank you for the visit, Wendy

Looks like you had a fun time in San Deigo. Next time make sure to get your parking validated in Seaport Village, the cost after validation is only $1. I am glad you got to visit so many cool places. The Tiki Minigolf is very new, I haven't had a chance to check it out yet. I wonder how long it will last? Maybe it will still be there next year for you and Dan to putt around at!
