Return to Zuma Beach
Another hot weekend in the Antelope Valley and we again escaped to Zuma Beach. This time we did not take the canyon roads but stayed on the freeway and got there faster!! I would have though sneaking through the canyons would have been faster but going that way has a lot of traffic lights before the canyons. When we got to Zuma beach we drove a little bit more to the north than where we were last weekend. The sand seemed to be a little bit nicer here. The waves were again spectacular to watch. The day seemed a little bit hotter than last Saturday and this time we checked out the water. It was kind of tough to do anything other than watch out for the big waves. The undertow was very strong as well. Another great day at Zuma Beach.

E.T. Movie Night
Just a reminder for those in the area that tomorrow, Friday August 26, E.T. will be showing at the Palmdale Amphitheater. If you look at my previous posts from August 15th you will see a picture of the large movie screen that they will show the movie on. Admission is free and it is an outdoor show.
Hiking Southern California
It sure has been a hot summer out here in the Antelope Valley. Hopefully I will be able to get out soon and do some more hiking. I have been looking through my Hiking Southern California book and hope to hike some of these soon. Hopefully I will have some pictures to share as well. Check out the book by clicking HERE.

Astronaut Bobble Head Night at Jethawks Game
Last night was Astronaut Bobble Head night at the Lancaster Jethawk's Game. I got mine and enjoyed the baseball game. Unfortunately the Jethawks lost 12-6 to Bakersfield. After the National Anthem they had a jet fly overhead with a former Astronaut in it. Then after the game there was a spectacular fireworks show as well. I remembered halfway to the stadium that I didn't have my camera. I was hoping to have some pictures of the stadium and fireworks show to share. You can check out the Lancaster Jethawks website by clicking HERE.

Beware of Pit Bulls in the Antelope Valley
I was looking through a USA Today a few days ago and noticed that the Antelope Valley was mentioned in it. On the page where it lists all of the states the California update was from Palmdale. It says that there have been over 22 pit bull attacks in the Antelope Valley this year so far. That is up from a reported 6 attacks last year. This has cost the area $245,000 to hire more animal control officials. This is a very costly pet to own it seems and unfortunately you do not have to own one to have your tax dollars spent on these issues. I heard on the radio that some areas have outlawed the animals as pets for these reasons. I will be on the lookout for pit bulls the next time I go for jog.
