Sunday night. One more day…


This may be brief. I’m a little worn out tonight.


  • Breakfast at another great coffee shop in Pasadena.
  • Toured the Valley shooting lots of photos and videos.
  • Visited Mildred Pierce’s house in Glendale.
  • Lunch at Wienerschnitzel (finally).
  • Found a great used bookstore in North Hollywood which also happened to be a magnet for cute geeky boys on a Saturday afternoon.
  • Shawerma for dinner.
  • More twilight photos and videos.
  • Brief, ill-advised nightlife experiment.



  • Tested my airport route for Tuesday morning.
  • Visited the oldest operating McDonald’s in Downey.
  • Came back into town via Slauson, Figueroa, and Broadway.
  • West Adams, Pico-Union, downtown.
  • Spent an hour or so walking around in in Westlake/MacArthur Park. That area makes me smile a lot.
  • South on Crenshaw to Inglewood, with detours.
  • Walked around Santa Monica for an hour or so.
  • Back east via Santa Monica and Wilshire Boulevards.

Tomorrow, I’ll probably stay mostly around Pasadena being a pedestrian. I’m weary of all-day drives and a little worn out in general. Plus I hit a bit of a mood tonight in Santa Monica for several reasons which I shan’t detail right now. A low-key last day may be just the thing for me.
