Mellow Sunday Morning
Amy and I had a near-perfect mid-Labor-day-weekend Sunday morning. We drove over to the Santa Monica Pier (with excellent weather -- not too hot, not too cold) and had brunch at Marisol, the Mexican restaurant at the far end of the pier. Of course, they had no breakfast items on the menu, and the view was better than the seafood burritos we had, but it was still very pleasant. After watching the ocean crashing on the beach for awhile, we visited Whimsic Alley, a charmingly decorated Harry Potter boutique. Amy and I have been reading the latest HP book to each other, and so I got the urge to visit this place. It certainly has all the HP merchandise one could hope to find under one roof. Afterward, we came back, where I'm banging this out to procrastinate actually going to work cleaning the house.
