Yesterday was a travel day, coming home from California and a badly-needed break. Bad news: I’m having grandson withdrawal. 🙂 Our daughter, grandson, and I started our last few hours together with a walk to Sweet Wheat for my last raspberry panna cotta, followed by a walk by the beach, then back to the apartment to load up my van, hug and kiss everyone, and venture out into the LA traffic. Everything went quite smoothly for the most part until I had an hour added to my arrival time when on the bottom part of Chiriaco Pass, traffic came to a halt due to some sort of emergency about five or six miles further up the road. Of course I knew nothing about it except that the zillion trucks and million cars were barely moving. I put in a couple of CD’s, sang along, and was thankful that the accident wasn’t further up, where 11 miles could have taken several hours.

Libraries of whatever size are favorite places of mine and here are two good-looking ones I found during my visit. This first one sports a definite beach vibe and needed more then just a front door view to appreciate the whole thing. Don’t you just love the door handle?

Although right above the beach, this library is less decorative yet still attractive. Unfortunately I didn’t have a book to leave, so I just took a photo rather than a book.
