It’s a three-day, holiday weekend in the US, but I’m not sure that has anything to do with the stars aligning and loading up the social calendar. Maybe. I don’t know. I think that’s well above my pay grade.
Last night we were back at the Ahmanson Theatre, this time for “Hadestown.”
Utterly spectacular! From the first words out of Hermes’ mouth to the last toast to Orpheus, I was totally enraptured. It was an absolute delight.
This afternoon we went down to the sea in Redondo Beach to meet friends for lunch.
I only had a few minutes before lunch to wander around the marina with camera in hand, looking for the storks, seagulls, pelicans, and harbor seals that I could see and hear off in the distance. I didn’t really find them. But there were boats. LOTS of boats.
Holes in the water that you pour money into.
But cheaper than planes. (But planes are better and worth it!)
