Small fry

This struck me as funny.....a tiny razor and a rather large helmet.

Tiny efficiencies.....big moves.

Tide Pools at Leo Carrillo State Beach - Malibu

So on a Monday, I was out at the Malibu Beach...and rediscovering tide pools with a bunch of 7-8 yr olds.  But it was a day that brought out a bunch of comers, a Chinese couple, some filmmakers, and
the usual suspects - surfers, pelicans, some hermit crabs and sea anenomes.
But when the kids ran out from the bus, descending onto the sand, and getting ready for some beach time, that's when the fun bagan.

We got them out of their shoes and walked thru some large rocks down and around the myriad sea creatures...

It takes some encouragement to get them to reach in and investigate....and we hoped to open up some new horizons.

 The smiles did tell us they very much enjoyed the day!

LA Marathon

Once a year, the runners flood the streets of LA...starting at Dodger Stadium and ending up in Santa Monica.
Lots of families come out to support the runners....

The first runners make it in within 2 hours.....and this one looked especially fit...and ready to make a call.

Brings out the best of Los Angeles....everyone loves a winner!

Coming into the city

Sometimes downtown LA can look a little like Oz...

On this rainy day, we came down through the cloudy skies into Los Angeles.
