An Hour Away

I’ve taken a quick trip to los Angeles to visit a friend.She and I met years ago in Texas when my ex and I moved across the street from her. We were both having marital problems and I spent hours on a green and red antique barber chair in her bedroom talking. She got out of her marriage years before I did and moved back to California where she had grown up. I have visited her there many times since then and try to see her each time I am in the States.

A cute little place I saw in a side street of Hermosa Beach, one of the beach cities of LA.

There was a volley ball tournament going on at the beach as there often is.

An iconic life gaurd station on Redondo Beach. It was 70 degrees as compared to the 104 degrees back in Scottsdale.
