Notes:

1 – Street next to the beach. Imagine how much people in these apartments pay in rent.

2 – Santa Monica City Hall.

3 – Really nice looking apartments. 10 minutes from the beach.

4 – That’s a really beautiful building.

5 – It’s not “The Tallest Building”. It’s the tallest I’ve seen in Cali.

6 – Sign says For Rent. No idea how much and don’t wannt know. It’s not going to be affordable.

7 – This hotel is across the street from the beach. Walk right out of the hotel and just run free on the beach.

8 – Obligatory shot of Santa Monica Blvd.

9 – New work.

 

Note: More pictures will be added later.

6 – Finally! The Beach! This was after 13+ years that I went to a beach. I brought back so many memories. Memories from days gone by when we would go to the beach and just be kids.

8 – Couldn’t go on the teach ‘coz some people I was with weren’t ready to go on the sand. Didn’t have their slipper/sandles/beach-footwear. The dress shoes would have been ruined.

9 – Seemed so relaxing just watching others obey Frankie.

Notes:

1 – This is just heading out of here.

2 – I-10. The least advance highway in the road.

3 – The highways seems to be just messy and unclean. Coming from Texas, this seems like a trash yard.

4 – Lot of people go to LA on the weekends. Many people from the Redlands are go to the beach every weekend.

5 – 3 million people! Laura, you think that’s a big enough town to move to (since you were saying to move to a bigger town)?

6 – The picture doesn’t do this view justice.

7 – This view looked really beautiful in the tree shades and in the nice sun.

8 – Heading to SM.

9 – Seems like any old cali town.

10 – Graffiti is everywhere. It’s almost as if they forgot to educate this whole last generation.

Santa Monica

The Trip to Santa Monica was pretty fun. It was a little different than anticipated. Because we didn’t prepare to go on the beach. Well, I did! But others in the party weren’t ready to go into the sand. So we stayed on the paved area.

The area was really beautiful. The place looked really expensive. In a rush now. Will post further.

Trip to LA and Santa Monica

So it is settled! This weekend I will be driving to LA and Santa Monica to sightsee and to really see the places. Might have to make more than one trip and might have to go to different parts each time just to really see the LA area.

I will take the camera with me and take enough pictures for you all to see and enjoy as well. Have to first empty out the card and save all the pictures off.

The apartment search has been going slow. Went to the Olive Apartments yesterday. The apartments are next to a church. The church custodian is also the apt. mgr. Nice fellow. He was nice enough to talk and explain that he just rented out the last unit avaialble. And recommended other places to try and other methods to find apartments. This is driving me crazy. Thinking about trading the stang for a Chevy van or something and just living out of the van. Will allow me to move more and worry less about lodgings. Well, only wishful thinking. Bathroom and shower will be a big problem. And that’s a hassle I’d rather avoid. Otherwise, the plan could really work. With the VerizonWireless internet conenction using PC Card, it should be fine to work remotely and not have to really need a landline and DSL.

Back to reality. Another option is to drive further north to San Fransisco and just find a place there. In terms of apartments, Cali is expensive. Hotels are expensive. In San Fransisco hotels are like $250 a night for regular hotels.

This whole trip needed to be better thought out.

The issue with lodgings is not due to any problem with my current setup. My uncle and his family are more than welcoming and very nice. They are very generously letting me stay here rent free and mooch all the free internet service that my work requires. But at some level, it feels like even tho I’m with family I’m still not home.

Accordings to the latest polls (of friends and acquaintances), I’d be an idiot to try to move out.
