Old Familiar H.S.

Recognize this place? You should. It’s the go-to high school when the script calls for one. Most notably, it’s the rock ‘n’ roll high school of the great b-movie of the same name. It’s also the alma mater of one of LAMary’s sons, and the highlight of the tour she gave me yesterday.

Unfortunately, it’s the only picture I took. Sorry about that — a bit jet-lagged.

On to San Onofre today, which my reading material says is one of the best places on the globe to learn to surf.

Good thing, too. Catch y’all later.

Having a lovely time. 

Wendy’s not a good Lab impersonator, but she tried. Big storm left us power-less for a day-plus, but otherwise all is well. Wish you were here, but you sorta are.

Saturday afternoon market.


Because it’s cold and drizzly outside, that’s why.

Haven’t done one of these for a while, but how often do you see a turnip as big as your head?

Saturday morning market.

The only thing more pathetic than the silver-painted statue buskers are the people who are charmed by them.

Saturday morning.

I’m thinking just “Saturday morning” today. Hope yours is going well.
