This morning we went down to the beach to watch the Hermosa Beach Ironman. It consists of a 1 mile run down the beach, then you grab your surfboard and paddle back one mile to the start/finish line and to complete the event you have to finish off a 6 pack of your favorite beverage.
We drove up north for the weekend. Spent Saturday at Roland and Anitra’s house with Maggie’s parents and brothers and then Sunday at my parents house with Tom and Grandpa. I was a quick trip, but really nice to be able to see the family again.
This town knows how to party. Another celebration. Shutdown Pier Ave and Hermosa Ave for booths. Lots of cool arts and crafts. Carnival rides petting zoo and adult beer party as well. Something for everyone. Very nice festival. Parking around town is impossible. Lots of Uber and shuttle busses.
We had to go to the police station to bail him out. Smoke detector went off so we put him in the fenced off portion of the yard. Apparently he broke out or jumped the fence. When we went out to check on him he was gone. Spent an hour searching before calling the city. He was there. We had to go pick him up but since he was not even out of the park where they picked him up they did not charge us. But were on the “list” at this point.
Hermosa Beach out on a concert and celebrated the Pier for it’s role in the movie la la Land. We went down to take a look. Really not much. They had some lights installed by the movie studio and some of the directors and other folks involved with the movie were there. No stars as far as I know.
