After leaving Jackson we spent a couple of days in Redondo Beach with Walter’s cousins and some old friends. The four of us in the photo grew up in the South Bay and it’s where Walter and I met and married. It was fun walking around the pier where we spent so much time as kids and teenagers. Walter bussed tables there as a teenager to pay for his flying lessons. The white building shown behind the pelican used to be the Redondo Beach Public Library (I think it’s a wedding venue now). I spent many summer days reading in comfy chairs facing an ocean view through those large windows. I went through the whole Beezus and Ramona series during the summer between 5th and 6th grade. It was a beautiful day trippin’ down memory lane with Sonny and Agnes.
