A sunny day in February!

I was soooo looking forward to this Saturday because the weather forecast was in the high 70's / low 80's and it was February! I had brunch plans in Larchmont, but the moment it was over I trekked over to Venice Beach to join some friends who were enjoying the sunny weather at a beer garden. Parking was crazy! I guess everyone else in town had similar ideas to head to the beach! Some of the little lots were going for as high as $12! (crazy) I admit I was quite cranky by the time I parked my car, but once I started walking along the beach and saw all the people jogging, sunbathing, hanging out ... I realized (once again) how lucky I am to live in LA. I mean, it's the middle of winter!
Things only got better from here - I met up with my friends, drank some beers (sidenote - why, oh why, do people drink beers? you have to drink so much to even get a buzz, and by that time you are so bloated and bladder-challenged.
The beer garden was super crowded, but for the most part people were friendly and chill. Only a few people were grumpy including the guy who tried to steal sybil's chair - but no worries - we got the chair back! i think people try to mess with us sometimes because we look so docile and sweet - boy, are they wrong!
the day at the beach ended with a beautiful sunset. A group of people were on the sand waiting like us. Also, lots of couples were out there, practicing for valentine's day, i guess. :)
