To the California: LA Baby

Our family had a fantastic and much needed vacation to California. It was Bowie's first time on an airplane and he was perfect. The first half of our trip was spent in LA- specifically Redondo Beach. We rented an Airbnb. It was a tiny studio but it had a patio overlooking the ocean and the beach. Luckily we figured out Bowie could sleep in a suitcase and we didn't have to share our bed.

We spent our time walking from Redondo beach to Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. Our friend Megan put us in touch with her friend Tony who did a fantastic job recommending local restaurants and  places to explore. The best part was simply walking along the ocean and getting out feet wet and sandy. Bowie did not like that part as much as I did.

In Manhattan beach we especially enjoyed watching the surfers and visiting the touch tanks at the Roundhouse Aquarium on the pier.

We made friends with Donna, a woman who decided to take up surfing after she retired. She insisted we put Bowie on her surfboard. Cute overload.

A major highlight of the vacation was getting to spend time with my old pal Bobby Styles. He was kind enough to make the long drive from his home in Porterville to LA to visit us. We were sad we did not get to meet his fiance and her kids but we are so happy for the excellent Bobby time. We are excited for your upcoming wedding Bobby and we love you!

PS best toasted coconut ice cream ever at Manhattan Creamery. 

Bowie likes anybody with a beard.

We also made sure to spend time on Abbot Kinney Street in Venice before "Part 2" of our trip. There we watched the beautiful people and either lusted or laughed at their crazy lives. It started pouring rain so we ducked into RoosterFish and made new friends over beers. Not many pics from that portion of the trip but I assure you a good time was had by all...

I will always bring snakes into the house.
