We left only 15 minutes late. That is a new record for us when it is time to leave friends or family. We stopped at a Smith's supermarket to pick up lunch salads. We found a real Kosher deli in the store and I was thrilled to be able to buy good, lean corned beef. I cannot get that at home.
The drive to SoCal can be so boring. However, because of the clear and, for once, comfortable weather, the desert was far more beautiful than I have seen it in quite some time. The spring time, however, is utterly gorgeous with wildflowers of all different hues softening the harsh landscape. I took a photo of the off-ramp to Zzyzx Road so that you will know I was not kidding when I mentioned it in yesterday's entry. I tried to photograph the area the road leads to, but the light was not good and the distance shot became too washed out.
We reached my niece, Leslee's, home in Monrovia about 2:30 PM and it was wonderful to see her and her terrific kids, Alanna and Devin. I was hoping we could spend more time together, but young people today have amazing schedules. We continued on to my sister's home in Woodland Hills. Jag cooked dinner once again! Everybody gets to enjoy his great talent. With simple ingredients he managed to turn plain chicken into a gourmet treat.
