August 2016 - Duarte and LA, California

Duarte, CA

I was in California for the month of August to help Helen recovering from a stroke.

Most mornings, I took walks thru the neighborhood and also along the San Gabriel river bed.

         

The bridge in the distance (left photo) is a bike/walk path across the San Gabriel River.  The river is dammed upstream so there is not very much water at most times.

   

This photo shows the damage from fires in the foothills in May of 2016.



Los Angeles, CA

One day we visited the Petersen Auto Museum with our friend Jim.

Another day, we drove along the coast and stopped at Santa Monica beach to collect a small bottle of sea water for a friend.
