I spent last week out at the LA school and got about 80% of the things done that I wanted. It’s almost like time moves twice as fast when you know you have to leave town at a given time.
The weather out there was very un-Southern California: cloudy every day with highs around 60 and lows below 50. In hindsight, it was actually very nice, but I would’ve packed different clothes (hence the new sweatshirt I picked up at Downtown Disney). It seems that the air quality had recovered from the recent fires.
I ate at a lot of the same places this time, finally trying something new on the last night. The Bluewater Grill was located right on the harbor in Redondo Beach and had some really good seafood. My co-workers had an oyster sampler and swordfish, while I tried some halibut from Alaska.
Looks like I’ll be back again in December to wrap up things for the year.Originally published by DK on November 10, 2007 at 5:30 pm
