I wonder what has been seen through the lens of these?

Last weekend, Kelly and I had a girl’s day out. We started in the late afternoon at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Have you ever been there? It was our first trip and I’m not sure if we were very prepared. It was enormous! I had to take a picture of all of these awesome cameras for sale!

My beach parking today. Such an ummm interesting beach.

And then we wound up in Venice Beach. Venice is quite an interesting town. We walked around for a few hours and got some sun. Well, I got a little too much sun. Somebody (me) forgot to put on sunscreen. I had hot arms and a bright red nose. Thankfully, I didn’t take a photograph. I was looking quite scary.

But after trolling around in Los Angeles all afternoon, Kelly and I were hungry. We wanted some real food besides the random stuff that we had snacked on during the day. So we headed to BJ’s Restaurant, which was right along the freeway in Huntington Beach.

Now you are probably thinking, doesn’t BJ’s sell pizza? Well of course they do, but BJ’s has a very large menu with a variety of items. We actually go there often, and everyone usually gets something different. But on our girl’s day out, Kelly and I decided to get some Big Poppas’ BBQ Specialty Menu which BJ’s is currently featuring. Maybe it’s because my husband has been watching all of those BBQ competition shows on TV lately, because a BBQ sandwich sounded delicious!

Kelly and I both ordered the Big Poppa Smoker’s BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. It was delicious! Kelly and I differed on our choice of fries but we both loved everything. They give you a choice of three sauces with your Blue Ribbon BBQ and I chose the mild. It was super yummy! The pork sandwich had crunchy fried onions on top that were delightful also. I highly recommend it! The serving size for the sandwiches were quite generous and we had some left to take home. But of course, we had to save our appetites for dessert, right? Because you can’t go to BJ’s without ordering a pizookie. And yes, it was as delicious as it looks!

And you are probably wondering, where are the cute girls that had a fun day out? Well I was quite sunburned but I got a covert photograph of Kelly snapping a picture of her food. We chose a BJ’s location that was pretty dark {romantic, I guess} inside and it was impossible to get photographs. We tried all types of angles etc. to get photos. I think the people across from us were probably wondering what the heck we were doing.

Yum! Now I’m craving BBQ! Those sandwiches and pizookie look so good that I want some now!
