Welcome back! We’re proud to present (finally!) the action shots of Issue 50, collected by Operative Ashley Tobin around Orange County, CA, in the warmest days of this summer (photos and commentary both by the operative).
Gazing at the Eiffel Tower mural in my great aunt Cheryl’s tea shop, “Paris in a Cup.” It’s located in the historic “Orange Circle,” in Southern California. If you’re ever around there, check it out. *wink wink*
Leaving “The Perfect Circle” cupcakery, also located in the “Orange Circle.” Yes, I am aware that cupcakery is not an actual word, but bear with me.
Outside of “Paris in a Cup.” It was imperative to my little sister that she be in some of the pictures with me.
The iconic water fountain in the center of the “Orange Circle.” It seemed that the event that was going on around me was a meet and greet with locals and Orange County bikers. Yes, very enthralling.
Examining Audrey and the wall decals of the cupcakery in all their glory.
The harmonious voices of my family rang out in this picture while they sang “Happy Birthday” to me.
Late night picture of a late night food run.
Hiking to “The Mermaid Lagoon,” a quaint little water hole my father and I found when I was younger.
Indulging in Indian cuisine at Himalayan Grill in Huntington Beach.
Many, many thanks to both Alisa Golden and Ashley Tobin for making 50 issues come off in fine style.
Next issue, we are heading to the swamps.
