We enjoyed our 6 months in California more than expected and leaving so soon was tough. Before we left we enjoyed a few more days of sunny warm weather with some nice jogs on the beach... Here's what I'll probably miss the most!
Andy and I went to our first taping of a show, Jimmy Kimmel Live. It's not actually broadcast live anymore, but it is right on Hollywood Boulevard, so we had plenty to look at while we stood in line. Waiting and forced applause aside, we got to see the studio and some great celebrities - It was a pretty cool experience!
... running along the small canal paths (along the backyards of the huge, amazing homes there), then out along the main canal. In the evening, the yachts, boats, paddle boarders and kayakers are making their way back into the marina here, so it's always fun to watch!
...The sun was getting ready to set and the wind was fierce, causing drifts in the sand and blowing a fine mist of it along the top, but it's still clear enough to see the mountains in the distance and the blue sky.
My near-daily walks on the beach are often an entertaining, if not educational, experience. This week I saw THIS! While I can't be 100% positive, research tells me that it's a Purple Stripe jellyfish. Even all smushed up, it was pretty (in its own way) ...
We've had an eventful couple weeks back in LA, but most of what I've been up to is making a daily trip to the beach for some exercise. The weather has been beautiful, so I had to go out on the Venice pier to get a good panoramic view!
