My cousin Mark was in town yesterday, so we spent a few hours hanging out. We didn't really have any plan or anything specific to do or see, so we just wandered the neighborhood with a walk down The Strand, a drink downtown, and back to El Porto for some dinner and another drink. While I did manage to take plenty of snaps along the way, I neglected to take a pic of either of us other than this silhouette when he was taking a pic of the pier. Oops. He did think to put one on facebook, at least. Though living at the beach hasn't been the attraction for immediate family that I thought it would be, it is a nice bonus of living near LAX that I often get to see friends and family when they are traveling through.
