The first full day there I went for a walk along the beach while my sister went for a bike ride. I needed a slower pace and took some time to draw and photograph the harbor and just take in the general flavor. I met a street musician there who performed a sweet rendition of 'Dos Gardenias Para Ti' from the Buena Vista Social Club especially for me.
Below are 2 of the drawings of the harbor.
That afternoon we decided to take a walk to Cannery Row to find a place to lunch and take the air. It was a bit cool. Cannery Row Brewing Company turned out to be just the ticket and we enjoyed excellent sandwiches and microbrews. We continued our stroll and below is the gallery.
The following afternoon we headed home, that is LA, on the renowned Pacific Coast Highway. We dined at a remote restaurant on Rocky Point near Big Sur. Truly there are many photo ops but I will only present a few.
We arrived late that evening at my sister's condo tired out from our trip and relishing a good night's sleep. I had 2 days to rest and recoup before heading to Tucson. The last evening we took a very pleasant walk along Lake Balboa and I leave you with this peaceful image of one of the resident cranes at sunset.
