Lazy (and foggy) Sunday afternoon by the coast

reel-inn-neon.jpgBy the time we headed toward the beach, the fog was a dozen blocks inland at least. Plenty festive crowd anyway at the Reel Inn on PCH, undeterred by the chill. In Santa Monica the sidewalks and streets around the pier and new Santa Monica Place mall were jammed with tourists. Jammed. A few blocks away on Main Street, I made eye contact with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver pedaling their bikes northbound, toward the crowds and home. She was between the gov and an unknown rider who led their pack.
