And Just Like That…

…I’m back in the saddle.

Everyone has their “woe is me” moments and I think it’s important to indulge in a pity party once in a while.

Table for 2, please: one will be me, the other my bruised ego. No need to bring wine glasses, we’ll be drinking straight out of the bottle.

Once the hangover has worn off the next morning, it’s time to brush the proverbial dirt off your shoulders and get back up to bat.

I started in Santa Monica and cruised my way up to Malibu.

As in Malibu Barbie. Or the Chevy Malibu. Or most of the locations for the television show Baywatch.

The water is absolutely picturesque no matter the time of day or the weather. I happened to be driving on a stereotypical California day and the water looked like this:
