The sun came out for the first time in a few days (that was a long stretch of gloom by southern california standards) and I had a friend in town. Bonus. This meant driving along the pch taking in point mugu's majestic beauty, dinner in santa monica and more beach strolling was all happening. Driving on the pch is one of my favorite things thanks to a friend who taught me at a young age that burning gas to relieve stress is not a bad thing. I don't do it often because I feel guilty and don't want to hurt the environment, but I do find it enjoyable from time to time.
