More like an hour, actually. It was really bloody hot yesterday, and our place has south facing windows, so we are in blazing sunshine all day long. So I told Trinity that it was too hot to stay home, and let’s go to the beach – we did say we wanted to explore the area a little. To my surprise, he agreed – he’s really not a beach kind of guy.
We ended up taking Las Virgenes Road into Malibu. Las Virgenes, before it hits Mulholland, actually turns into a scenic drive – who knew! I didn’t (before taking the road for a friend’s party recently). Anyway, it was beautiful – who knew there was such mountains, canyons and hills around Los Angeles. Sheesh.
Zuma Beach on a Monday was idyllic. But for a few joggers and sunbathers, Trin and I had the beach pretty much to ourselves. I spent most of my time trying to take pictures of the fast-moving birds, the waves and the scenery. I also splashed Trin a couple of times; c’mon, how could I not?
After hanging out on the beach for about an hour, we drove home and was back in Agoura Hills within 20 minutes. But we didn’t go straight home – first we went for a smoothie (for Trin) and a Cappucino Blast (for me) at Baskin Robbins.
Mondays off rocks. And to see more photos of our drive, check out my (new) Flickr stream.
