Sara - California Tuesday 10:30-12:00

Today, this ninth day of March, is crisp, clear, cold and windy! I went up on Signal Hill, on my way to the beach for a walk, to see what I could see. Here is downtown Los Angeles, 25 or so miles away. It is so clear today you can see the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory...two white specks in the hills to the left of downtown.

There is still some snow on the San Bernardino Mountains. But now it's time to get in the car and drive down to the beach...

...where the wind is whipping and oh so cold up on the bluff above the sea...

And you can see, down here at the water, as close to the ground as this bird stands, even he is being buffeted by the wind, his feathers all askew!

Back up top again, here is a view of (right to left) downtown Long Beach, the Palos Verdes peninsula, and the Queen Mary, with the port behind.

So....three miles walked today, up and down slopes and stairs and along nice, flat beach... Time to drive home and eat lunch.
