Every now and then its good to see your normal surroundings through a different lens. Monday was a bit more of a low key day after all our running around on Sunday. The boys were up and out early and took a long walk around Manhattan Beach while I was able to get a bunch of work stuff done. Later I broke free and joined them for a coffee at the food stand on the beach - someplace I hardly go despite it just being steps away. We walked down to the pier to catch the sunset from that view - another thing I rarely do. After an early dinner, the jetlag was already hitting them, so we made our way back home and pretty much called it a night. Even without going far from my normal zone, stopping to see it the way others do can always be nice.
