tbt: La belle France

Let's drift back to the 1600s when a certain great-great-great-etc grandfather made his mark and now a market and cafe and a street bear his name.

I love the lights and the rain

Let's stop in for a kir royale...

It's Puppy Wednesday!

Walt has a halo

Shooting into the sun and Walt has a little halo.

And yes, the 9/11 flags display at Pepperdine is still up. Two weeks and counting.

Miss Crankypants alert

marine layer over point dume

Today a local meteorologist was saying LA is in for high winds and high temps later this week, which will interrupt our "typical fall weather", and to be blunt, that's ignorant. High winds and heat are typical fall weather in Southern California. That's exactly what happens here in September and October and, lately, into November. It's that same lack of awareness that lets people say with a straight face that LA has no seasons, which is only true when you've decided not to pay attention.

End of crankiness. (For now.)

Meanwhile there's Point Dume, along with today's marine layer making a slow retreat.

Hot and hotter

hot dogs

To celebrate Puppy Wednesday we have two hot dogs who have grudgingly given up their position in front of the fan to sit still for a moment and roll their eyes at the photographer.

The edge

edge of the continent

Is it just me or does everything everywhere feels like it's on the edge these days?
