After ten days of west coast sun, I am sitting in the near dark, rain spattering now, but pounding down earlier.
A good day to read and write and put travel stuff away. Just for contrast, here’s a little California sun.
We saw K’s family in Oregon and managed also to see a lot of the state. The weekend was reserved for C and his girlfriend in LA. Highlights later.
More pix on Instagram.
Did I mention how nice it is to be home?
did you like LA?
I do. I’ve been a few times. First time spending time in Koreatown. A little gritty but good food, diverse, nonstop sunshine.
LA must be an acquired taste, when I visited the USA in 2014 I stopped off in LA to recover from the 14 hour flight from Sydney and spent the day at Venice Beach, was very happy I wasn’t panhandled or pickpocketed, my brother said this was because I look so much like a street person these days no one would have bothered!
Very funny of your brother. We went to Venice Beach and it is quite a scene. Not my cup of tea at all, but an experience. This trip was kind of all about fairly shitty parts of the city, unlike other visits. I still really enjoyed it though.
No Place like home, it’s where all the stuff is right where we put it. The sun will shine again here too soon.
Wow, the slice of blue in that last photo is spectacular!
And sometimes I miss east coast-style fall leaves …
Ah, yes, I know that sun-filled sky! As far as Venice, I used to roller skate the boardwalk there back in the mid-late 1970’s! It’s not so innocent anymore. I remember a visit to my son once in SF, where he took us to eat in the not so great neighborhood! Boys!
Yeah Venice was kind of gross. But, like everywhere else in LA, we had some tasty food.
