• (Couch)surfing in Hermosa!

    I know, it has been far too long since I last blogged. But thanks for continuing to follow my Facebook posts!

    Been (couch)surfing in Hermosa Beach lately. In all my years in L.A., over a decade, I have never spent so much time here as I have lately. I never wanted to be one of those people to live in the South Bay, for “those people” seldom seemed to leave it. Instead of opting for a birthday party in Santa Monica, oftentimes, my friends would stay in the South Bay. And now I know why. It is gorgeous here:

    That pic was from my friend’s deck!

    Here it is in the day:

    And living so close to the beach (two blocks) motivates you to exercise every day, walking or biking on The Strand here, alongside the Pacific Ocean.

    Saw this dad pushing his baby… Aww!

    And this is one of my favorite houses. (A girl can dream, right?)

    And here’s one thing from The Strand in Hermosa that we should all keep in mind:

    “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”

    And all the exercising makes you eat healthier. Here’s a pineapple/coconut yogurt-and-strawberries smoothie I made after my last walk.


    I don’t want to leave this couch, but I must.

    Later tonight, off to another South Bay town I go – Manhattan Beach.

    And here’s one final sign I LOVE:

    “Leave only footprints.”

    What kind of footprints are you leaving in the world?

    I grew up in the South Bay area, it is gorgeous, but some of us do leave. My husband & I discussed L.A. last week. We had a great time there, but we could never go back to living in such a crowded area again.

    I miss the Pacific, the Atlantic actually smells different. Last time I went west, I made a pilgrimage to Santa Monica and insisted on walking down to the beach.

    Go by the Hollywood Riveria for me, Catalina Ave., used to be where I hung out. Don’t think any of the businesses I knew are still there, but the road is!
