A weekend of photography and hanging out with friends.


Had a great week at the sophomore retreat in Sequoia National Park. There was a lot of snow and it was really fun snowboarding and hanging out with all the other sophomores. We left the Montecito Lodge where we were staying at 12:15. The drive back was five hours, but didn’t feel that long. It went by really fast because I played on my phone the whole time with Charlie and Chase. We didn’t drive back on the Santa Barbara Air Bus, but instead we drove back with Pablo in his car. I got really car sick the first hour of the car ride because we went on a very windy road. I had to roll down my window and stick my head out for thirty minutes to relieve the sickness. After about two hours of driving we stopped at Chipotle and I got a burrito while Charlie and Chase went to Mcdonalds. After eating our food we got back in the car and drove the last three hours of the trip. We arrived back in Santa Barbara around seven o’clock in the evening. When I got home I got my camera and went down to Shoreline Park to take some pictures. After about twenty minutes I got tired and ended up going home to go to bed.


I woke up late on Saturday because I was very tired from the long journey home on Friday. When I woke up I went straight to the skatepark because I hadn’t skated for a week. I have volleyball practice every day during the week and don’t usually get to skate as much as I would like. I got to the skatepark around twelve o’clock and met up with my friend Ryo. We skated for two hours before I began to feel hungry. I ended up going to Blenders to get a smoothy on State Street. After I finished my Blenders I skated back to the skatepark to find out that it was very crowded. It was hard to skate so I skated the bowl where there were less people. I skated the bowl till dark with Ryo and I ended up chipping my board really bad. I got picked up after my board chipped and went home. When I got home I grabbed my camera and my parents dropped me off at the Courthouse. I have drove by the Courthouse at night and it’s very beautiful. I really wanted to get some picture there. It was really fun taking picture there because it was so beautiful and there was so much to take pictures of. I stayed there for an hour and then my mom picked me up. I really liked taking pictures there and I think I will go back soon. What a great day.


I woke up at ten o’clock and got up right away. I took a shower, got dressed, ate, and brushed my teeth. After getting ready I put my skateboard in the car and we drove to church. When we arrived at church we were ten minutes late so we ended up missing singing. We found our seats and followed along with the pastor. After church I went to the skatepark and skate park all day. I skated with Ryo and my friend Anthony. Anthony and I got hungry around twelve o’clock and ended up going to Chipotle for lunch. After we skated back to the skatepark and skated till dark. It was a great weekend and I can’t wait to have more like it. Remember to always make the most of your weekend by doing what you desire.
