Oct 20, 2015 - Day 2 ....Off to the shops

Thankyou Mr Google, found our way to the local shopping center easily enough, and purchased a DeLonghi Coffee Machine that uses both ground coffee or Pods....happy with that. Purchased a few more essentials...fruit, biscuits, milk then had an afternoon rest, ready for the evening.

Mar 7, 2013 - Redondo Beach

Today was a good day at my sister's. We walked the beach in our winter coats. Some of the natives wore shorts but they could not fool us. Judy showed us how to harvest seaweed to make baskets. We should have some pretty good pickings for the next basket retreat. I told Jocelyn before we came that Judy is like me on steroids. She got a glimpse today but I can't wait to see how she feels when we get back from Seattle. Our highlight of the day was supper. Judy had a birthday party 9 years ago and had received a gift card to a restaurant. She...

Day 1 Hermosa Beach And I thought Jersey drivers were bad - whoa I take that back now after driving through LA!!! These drivers were out of control...out of control. And the hills - geez, very intense. But now I have a greater appreciation for the NJ Turnpike and even the Parkway...nothing but <3 Jerz Drivers. Ok so we arrived in Hermosa Beach! yay!

Nice and cool(ish) for once today with a sea breeze. went down to the beach to see if any surf but none so just having a chill day. Finally got to meet my friend. her name is Georgette apparently. She is a 5mtr "baby" Great White, caught a couple of miles out to sea a few years ago. On first sightings did not look realistic, as the inside of the mouth had been re-filled with plastic, but the rest looked pretty real! All her insides had been removed and then preserved, but still pretty fascinating none the less for the 5p entry fee. The...

Went for a surf at Redondo beach in the morning, pictures attached. Nice and sunny but sea is very cold. Got picked up by Robbie in the afternoon and went back to his house in West Hills, CA. Is about 10 degrees farenheit hotter in-land than by the Coast.

Aug 21, 2008 - 1st Day In LA

Just had breakfast. Robbie picked us up from the airport and went straight back to hotel. Was 3 hours late due to a "mechanical issue".At least we are here Hotel is ok, currently trying to work out how to run a bath. Faucets aren't very English-like. Was planning on renting a car for a few days, however seeing how everyone drives in LA, may decide against it! I thought red lights meant you had to stop. Apparently flashing red lights mean you can go, and ignore any lights if you want to turn right!!
