When we arrived in California, the South Bay area was cold and rainy. The unexpected weather and busyness of our first days here left us a bit on edge. All things must pass, including bad weather. The huge, unpleasant weather front gradually moved east. Our days here still began with a chill but blossomed into glorious sun and warmth. Now we could relax and enjoy spending our days outside.
We took such a long afternoon walk at Vasona Park that we were amongst the last to leave – allowing us to capture a quiet moment in the late afternoon light.
We’d never seen so many American coots on a lawn—a “cover of coots” is the right term.
We walked the dog while our grandchildren rode their bicycles.
Frequent destination: the nearby park. While the kids played, we took photos.
Even the shoes and shorts reminded us – it’s warm and fun in California!
Joe spent happy hours painting – outside and by himself.
We enjoy warm and laid back places. No wonder we enjoy coming back every year to California.
