The Santa Ana winds were howling again. It was nearing a dry and nasty ninety in Hollywood. That wouldn't do, so it was time to visit the shore birds at the lagoon at Playa Del Rey. It's tucked out of the way – few know about it. It's a quiet and calm escape from the city's madness, although somehow it feels like you're in that Hitchcock movie. ~ Friday, January 23, 2015
