After a long, sometimes really lonely, sometimes exhilarating, drive the landscape of Death Valley not only thrills you but truly takes your breath away. When we pulled into the one-way road through Artist’s Drive we worried that we couldn’t see where the road led to. Once in the drive we couldn’t wait to see where the next curve led to. Each landscape offered a different palette, different geology. I can’t wait to go back and hike it so I can breathe it in more slowly, savoring each view!

Here’s hoping the ocean and the sea are the same thing. I know smaller bodies of water are called seas but cruise ships set out to sea in the ocean so I’m wandering after that train of thought…

OK, who didn’t just love the combined wit, perspective, adventure and love of the most adorable boy and his ever faithful tiger? I loved Calvin and Hobbes, my son now loves them, and soon – if I can pry my comic books from his hands – my daughter will love them.
Well in this town, when you have a passion for something, you make a film to pay tribute. A friend’s husband is directing a film called dear mr. watterson and I can’t wait to see it because of the topic and because of the sentiment behind it. I tend to prefer movies where I know the “back story.” For me it makes it a 4-D film experience to know what went in to making it.
Thankfully the comic strip has many adoring fans so the film is funded and under way. Heeding Calvin’s words: “As far as I’m concerned, if something is so complicated that you can’t explain it in 10 seconds, then it’s probably not worth knowing anyway;” I’ll simply ask you to wander along with me, check out the film website and eagerly await the film!

In the morning, with the light streaming through the window, the walls disappear and the kitties joyfully sun themselves.

Knott’s Berry Farm, on my daughter’s birthday, presents a whole new magical experience at night!
They project lights across the floor and the kids decided the goal was to make it through Camp Snoopy without stepping on any lights on the ground.

The road I take home is right at the top edge of the LAX runway. Under planes’ final descent to the LAX runway, they get super close!
The best part of living in the South Bay is the gorgeous weather greeting me to the weekend.
The worst part is, everyone else is also jumpstarting their weekend!
WTF: Where’s The Fastlane?!
