Here we are awaiting departure at LAX. We had a great visit with some old friends, Matthew Ralston and Amanda Blake who live in Seal Beach and were great hosts as we spent the night in Santa Monica. We enjoyed a walking tour of the Santa Monica Pier, 3rd Street Promenade, and Main Street, and a sunset cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu to watch the surfers and the sunset. No celebrity sightings, however. This morning we woke up early, full of excitement, and strolled along the beach to Starbucks for breakfast, and back by the Santa Monica Sunday farmer's market before checck-out. Now we're watching our 747 pulling up to the gate before boarding. Next post will be from Seoul in about 12 hours.
