lunavideogames we forgot to validate but never again! I wanted to play the golf game just to see what it looked like inside the building. If you do please post photos here. It was a great trip.

WaikikianMoeKele ah Kele you always bring a smile to my face, thank you.

littlegiles it really is my pleasure. I've always liked to see others vacation photos because they helped me decide on future trips. However we seem to be unable to pass up tiki events. Too many friends to hug and visit when compare to just some place to see.

hang10tiki Dan and GROG must be related! Good Job.
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
I showed Dan my posts of the vacation last night and he found lots of incomplete sentences and a few that made no sense. Oh well the pictures were good.

Backing up again. Our first day in San Diego we always go to Ocean Beach to look for tikis. I believe that lunarvideogames is across the street from this shop. I didn't remember that and we missed having a visit while he worked.

The lamp shade belongs to Dan along with the lamp. He found three in this shop he couldn't resist. I got tired of my hat so he was wearing it too. We found more tikis next door. I'll eventually post photos of these and other tiki loot from the trip.


Along the walk to get a Acia (spelling?) berry smoothie I took this photo of a youth hostile. It reminds me of high school.


This is Dan's favorite vintage car so I snapped a photo.


The walk along Ocean Beach.


We drove to Old Town San Diego. It is a fun place to shop and dine. We had a fun meal in a courtyard.


During the walk around the square Dan heard a favorite Mexican song playing and we followed it to a stage where it was being sung live with a Karaoke machine. We listened a few songs before we left.


Well friends I have to get ready to leave now. We are meeting friends for lunch. We also got a call that there is an Islander Bumatay mug waiting for us at an antique store. We need to rush there before it's gone. We sign up on all the wish lists and they do call us back. That is how we got the huge black tiki in the nook where I glaze.

Bye for now. Cheers, Wendy

Great pics Wendy. I love "Dan and the Giant Leaf" too. That last picture you just posted, with the glass window in the floor so you can see the original foundation, Teresa and I were on that very spot in Old Town a few weeks ago

MadDogMike what a bummer that we were not there together. Partially because we didn't notice the glass window in the patio and we were there a long time. Also because spending time with you and Teresa is always a pleasure.

Here goes more on our trip to Tiki Oasis 13. These are all things that are available in San Diego.
These photos show our day at the San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park. This is one of the world's best zoos. Not only that the foliage in the park is worth more than the animals with many endangered varieties.

We started out the day as soon as the gates opened. We looked at the map and jumped on a double deck-er bus. For $44 you have access to these buses with a guided tour of the zoo.

We guessed right when we choose our seats. Facing forward get on the right side. You can stand up during the ride but we had the best view for most of the ride.

From the map we could tell that half of the zoo is hot and half is tropical.

We like tropical best. By riding the buss we could see where we wanted to walk later on. Every day the elephants get a manicure. One worker feeds the elephant treats to keep it in position while the other does the toes. They also weigh and check out other body parts to make sure they are OK.

Also included in the price are unlimited tram rides. As soon as we got off the bus we were able to get on the tram. The end of the ride didn't have a line so we stayed on and rode it back. After that a line formed so we were done riding for the day.

The map has a list of all the places to eat in the park. From the tram we could see the top of Albert's restaurant. We decided it was time to walk there.

The walk was beautiful just like Hawaii.

The restaurant was actually below the top deck. When you looked out you just saw trees and other plants. The food was good.

As we continued our journey Dan kept saying we are in Hawaii, this is beautiful. All that is missing are tikis
and then we came out of the tropical forest to find one.

We decided that we should look at some of the animals.
We found a huge Koala exhibit. They sure are sleepy animals. If one moved a millimeter the whole crowd would exclaim ohhhh it moved.

Back to the forest and more plants. Ohhhhh another tiki!

I use photos of plants in my paintings so I took a lot of them.






A lady offered to take our photo together at the end of our day. We saw 1/2 of the park in 5.5 hours. It was enough for this year.


Tomorrow finishes our photos of the rest of our Tiki Oasis 13 and then its back to ceramics.

Thank you for your ride along on our journey, Wendy

GROG you know Dan loves these as do I, thank you.
hang10tiki and lovable too.
---------------------------------------------------

For me Tiki Oasis is about the people. For Dan it is about the people and tiki hunting. We always seek out Buzzy and Christina.
Each year he gives a pinup to his fans. We hang them all in what we call the Buzzy Bedroom. MadDogMike and Gecko have slept here.

Entering the room with all the pinups of Buzzy.

When you take photos of/with Doug Horne, send 'em to me before you post. I always Photoshop him to make him a head or two taller than he is in the photos.

Wendy, thanks for the great photos of Oasis- and of SD. I have to say, I've spent quite a bit of time at the Zoo (work there quite a bit) and have never seen a tiki there. Have to find them next time (or find out if they have more behind the scenes). I agree, the botanical exhibits at the SD Zoo are amazing, so much to see. Koalas are nocturnal (I think), thus a lot of snoozing during the day- I was there for an evening event and they were pretty active. Great seeing you and Dan enjoying San Diego!

I love Ukulele Bob- he's enjoying enjoying his time in his new home sitting next to another Wendy Bob. (You can slightly see one of your Moai masks to the right, too).

(this is my attempt at Bob's facial expression:)



Grog, the Doug Horne photo is amazing (he's almost that tall, anyway....)

As always, I really enjoy your event pictures! It's like being there. (A little bit.) thanks for always sharing.

Speaking of which I will post my Hawaii pictures in the Tiki travel forum soon. I met 5 TC people while I was there and got to visit many cool places, went a tiki tour with Phillip Roberts and got mugs from La Mariana, Mauitiki, Beachbumz and Gecko, plus more. Thanks for recommending a visit to Gecko's studio, it was really cool and he and his family were so nice. We met little Gecko too. It was a GREAT trip!

hang10tiki he made a deal in the parking lot shhhhhhh

GROG I didn't notice you had made him larger until I looked at the original. He is so tall.


TikiAno this was a perfect and cute photo. I love seeing my work in the hands of collectors posted here. Thank you big time. I'm glad you got Ukulele Bob. Eventually I'll be posting my test of the glaze you brought me at Oasis, another thank you. We will go back to the zoo next year and wait until it's dark so we can see them move.

LoriLovesTiki oh I wish I had been there. I haven't met Kainoa yet. He is such a clone of his dad. La Mariana is such a cool place, did you see the black velvet painting of Ailie? You visited my favorite Maui guys too. I know your trip was excellent. I'll watch for your photos.

Gene S Morgan thank for this visit. I'm glad you got the message about pink!

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

lunarvideogames requested to see what Dan bought when we were in his town Ocean Beach so here are Dan's treasures.


One is in the tiki jungle room and the other in his garage man cave.

This lamp says the company on the back with the year 1959. Dan loved how exotic it looks.

He found a place in the tiki jungle room for this huge lamp.


We received four gifts on our trip.

The first was from HB Tiki he made an umbrella to celebrate the occasion. Thank you Roger we really like it.


Next Loki Tiki gave us a remote controlled multiple extension set so we can plug in a whole bunch of lights at once and turn them on with ease. Thank you Loki.


Each year Buzzy does another pin up and gives one to each fan. We have the Buzzy bedroom so we really need to keep this tradition going. Thank you Buzzy.


Then Tiki Ano brought me a sample glaze that I'd not seen before. I'll post my glaze test soon.

Your are all so dear for writing here and bringing us presents. Tiki people rock. Cheers, Wendy
