California Impressions

We arrived in Southern California very late on Wednesday night.  Other family members flew in on Thursday.
 

 
We've been to the mountains and to the ocean.


We relived fond memories, and made new ones.


We ate. 
 


 
And there was a ten-minute shopping spree.
 
And a beautiful memorial service.
 
 
 
And then there's the jet lag.
 




Back after some sleep......Sunny

I've never been to sunny, southern California. Too bad you only had a 10 minute shopping spree BUT you can go shopping anytime. You can't spend special time with extended family for a very special reason whenever you want. Glad you had a chance to go.

How did you like In & Out? That's where my daughter works. There's sort of a cult following out here for them. I'm glad you are home and safe. Hopefully, jet lag doesn't last long.

Glad you got to go and be with family, so that you could all comfort one another. Sharing memories and building new ones are so important as you start to heal from the loss.

Many of the older properties in London and even some of the newer ones are prone to drainage problems. With everything from root growing into pipes, your own home waste blocking the pipe, to leaves and gravel being washed into the storm drains, there are a million and one things that can cause pipes inside and outside your home to be blocked...
