Around Here

We rode our bikes to the Concert in the Park at Parnell Park last Thursday. We heard a Beattles Tribute Band and picnicked on sandwiches from the Honeybaked Ham Store. We’ll probably go again this week. 

Lunch at Cava with Sarah this past week was delicious.

Cathy joined us for The City of Whittier Rock and Roll Event this past Sunday. The main Uptown streets were closed to traffic all morning allowing the cyclists and walkers free reign. We were out about 3 hours, which included a leisurely breakfast at Mimo’s.  A few pic…


 

Another Morning in Santa Monica and The Cutters

Chris and I spent another Saturday morning roaming around Santa Monica. We took the Expo Line from DTLA to the 4th Street stop and spent a couple of hours checking out the Arizona Street Farmer’s Market and walking along Ocean until it was time to board the train for our lunch invitation at The Cutters. We got off at the Palms stop and walked about a mile to their house in Cheviot Hills. Chris enjoyed a dip in the pool and then we had a good lunch and conversation. We eventually headed back to the train and made our way back home. 



 

Around Here

Our down-the-street neighbors invited us for an outdoor dinner and fireworks viewing on the fourth. The table and the food were so good! And, the company was fun. This is our third or forth 4th at The Acuna’s. We love this tradition!

These parrots fly through our neighborhood every night. Noisy, but brief.

Chris and I had breakfast at the new Northgate González Market in La Habra last Saturday morning. We ordered our usual weekend breakfast out food, breakfast burritos, and they were good. We ate on the very nice patio.

The hot summer days make for pretty sunsets.

The Smith’s invited us to meet up at the beach for breakfast Sunday morning. We picked up coffees and bagels at Starbucks in Huntington Beach and then “camped” out at Bolsa Chica for a couple of hours. We caught up on family news and watched the surfers. Chris and I were home by noon. I spent time with my mom; Chris caught up on paperwork. We made pizza for dinner and settled in for a couple of Netflix hours, as we usually do on Sunday nights.
