Just beachy

With a few of the local staff from the Consulate: Claudia, Missy and Martha – all dolls

John and I flew to Los Angeles on Friday – me to visit with Aunt Bonnie and John to attend a brainiac conference at CalTech (origins of the universe, anyone?). Aunt Bonnie, Kohlie the Poodle and I drove him up there Friday afternoon.

Kohlie and I have gotten lots of good walks in. Manhattan Beach is a great neighborhood for walking, and the weather has been fantastic.

We drove up this morning to get John, after breakfasting with the Elks Club group. John and I drove down to the Redondo Beach pier to walk around – I hadn’t been down there in ages. We sat outside to have a drink and listen to the waves crash.

The week leading up to our mini-vacation was pretty busy. Monday night was book club at our house – we read Amy Chua’s “World on Fire” and had a good discussion.

Tuesday night we had a cookout at our house for a new entry-level officer who we were sponsoring. Wednesday night I took my TDYer friend Cathy¬†from Nuevo Laredo out for dinner at a little Italian place, then Thursday night was a happy hour. Glad I’d had a cocktail before the VP debate…
