Los Angeles loves me
Look, they named a street after me, and they even put it in Illini colors.
Yup, kids, I'm on vuh-cation. Don't you dare make fun of me for blogging while I'm here; It's my party and I can blog if I want to!
Lori picked me up at the airport yesterday morning, and before we retired last night (23 hours after I woke up to hit the road), we had been to the beach, lunch at a World Cafe, strolled around Santa Monica, hit a farmer's market, got manicures and pedicures, sushi for dinner, and had a few beers in a cozy little dive called The Lost & Found.
Oh, and I took about 200 photos in the interim. Here a few I liked, at day's end:
The Thursday Farmer's Market in Westwood proved to be bountiful, in both fruits and photos. Here's a sampling, and if you want to see the works, see My SmugMug Gallery.
I've just had a beautiful breakfast, am going to hit the showers and hit the streets for Day 2.
