The Majestic Vistas from the Pacific Palisades

The Majestic Vistas from the Pacific Palisades

→  May 28, 2009 10

During a recent early morning walk, I headed for the hills, literally–the hills of Pacific Palisades to be precise. The Pacific Palisades is home to about 27,000 people, demographically very affluent, and a veritable who’s who in the movie and film industry. Founded by 1922 by Rev. Charles H. Scott, Pacific Palisades was initially envisioned [...]

Have you ever thought about fishing in Los Angeles? Until I went to the Santa Monica Pier and saw all the people fishing, it didn’t even occur to me, but then again, I’m not a fisherman.

As I stood looking out, these bird-covered cliffs were on my right, and an out of the ordinary cliff containing a rock formation was on my left. I’m very interested in all things ocean [...]

Christmas Morning in San Diego (A Multi-Part Series)

→  December 26, 2008 9

Christmas found me in San Diego, and the beauty it offers at Christmas. After breakfast, a walk on the beach is a well worn Christmas tradition in Southern California—apologies to all of my friends, far and wide, who may be snowed since the sun, surf, and sand, aren’t the normal images one thinks of when [...]
