Katherine flew in on Friday evening. The three of us went out to our newly found favorite tapas restaurant and had a very yummy dinner. I found a new favorite and it really is enough in one item to just have that.
Saturday Katherine and I had a very slow leisurely start to the day. Having breakfast at home and looking at photos from her Christmas Belieze trip. We did a little garden tour so she could see what we were up too and luckily the lilac vine was in bloom. The romaine has gone to seed and the swiss chard is nearly taller than me.
We then went out to lunch and then had a lovely walk around the El Durado nature park. We spotted turtles of course and ducks. The coolest bird was the tri-colored heron that flew in and landed right above us.
We headed home and took a little break before going out for a quick Thai dinner and then to the movie Imitation Game. It was fabulous!!!
This morning we headed to Hermosa Beach where we met up with Katherine’s niece and had brunch near the beach. We then walked down to the ocean and then wondered around for a couple of hours until we dropped her back at LAX. It was a brief but fun-tastic weekend.
