Strangers On The Shore

It’s always special to take advantage of a walk along the water’s edge at the beach. This day did not disappoint and was especially appreciated given the dismal deep freeze my friends in the Midwest and East coast are stuck with. This is the Venice Pier, originally constructed in 1905, but a severe winter storm…

The Grammy Museum

One of the benefits of living in a big city is the entertainment possibilities.  Yesterday was one of those days, when despite the traffic, I joined some friends in downtown Los Angeles, known by some as DTLA. Not WeHo, West Hollywood, or SoHo, in New York or You Ho, oh never mind. This day was…

Malibu, it’s Not Just a Beach

Having family visit from back east is a great opportunity to once again, be a tourist, this time in a city not far from my home.  Malibu Beach is just up the road about 45 minutes, depending on the traffic. Malibu, known for its pristine beaches and surfers is also home to the rich and famous,…

All Aboard

Welcome to Metrolink.  Now what?  Parking is free, that’s a good thing.  Buy a TAP card. Confused, just ask the regulars standing around, everyone was very helpful.  The TAP card is your access through the turnstile that allows you to board the train. There it is over there. Maybe you’ll need a bike at your…

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

While football season may be your first love, for me baseball was a very important of my childhood.  I played a little softball, not all that great; my brother was an excellent baseball player starting with Little League and all through high school. My mother was a huge Dodger fan, especially Sandy Koufax.  We have…

Now What?

Is it true? No more travel plans in June? What’s a suitcase to do?  Well, one thing for sure, while I may not be sitting on an airplane for a few hours, it hasn’t stopped my mouth from moving! This blog has been a six month odyssey. Using my dictionary, (which has been epic), in…

Hockey at Dodger Stadium

How lucky can I be?  I had the opportunity to enjoy outdoor professional hockey at Dodger Stadium.  I’ve been a Dodger season ticket holder with 3 other families since 1986, but that is story for another day. I hope my pictures tell you the story of what the night was like in the City of…
