These may not seem like the typical holiday photos, but living in Southern California is far from typical. In fact, I've noticed that Christmas Day is historically sunny and beautiful each year here rather than wintery cold (which will come soon enough in January). Yesterday was no exception...as you can see, it was simply gorgeous at the beach. Much of the week promises to be sunny and in the 70s, so I plan to step outside and enjoy it. Right now one venture is planned up north at the Getty Villa in Malibu and another is planned downtown at the classic film noir location of Union Station. That's pretty much the extent of the work I plan to do on vacation this week, so forgive me as I step away from the computer. Hope you're having some fun of your own and really enjoy whatever time you can manage away from work. Happy holidays!
