Palos Verdes Drive
I was wondering if the cold would ever really settle in this winter, but I think the recent weather indicates that the answer is “yes”. In fact, when we got back from our end-of-year trip our car was coated with a solid three inches of ice.
As I scraped the windshields I thought back fondly on our recent sojourn. It was the second time in two years that we had spent Christmas in Los Angeles.
On our first day there we decided to take our rental car down San Pedro Drive, starting just south of Los Angeles and ending in San Pedro.
It’s only a fourteen mile drive, but you can easily consume an entire afternoon with all the turnoffs and paths for wandering.
There is a small state park at the turnoff for the Point Vicente Lighthouse, complete with a small museum and a deck for whale watching.
We didn’t see any whales, but we enjoyed watching the pelicans flying in formation above our heads. Oh, you pelicans, don’t take that blue sky for granted.
