Saturday (Valentine’s Day) around L.A.

February 19, 2009

I mentioned we planned to spend our Valentine’s Day hiking, followed by an evening in.

We drove north past Malibu and did a loop that included Tri-Peaks and Sandstone Peak.  It was the most beautiful day you could ask for in SoCal!  The air was crisp and clean due to the previous week’s rain, and the clouds were nice fluffy clouds I usually don’t see out here.  It was stunning.


The cost was a couple sandwiches, Cliff bars and the gas to drive there (never mind all the hiking crap we bought last year).  We came home and cooked some chicken penne with strawberry avocado salad and shared champagne.  The cost of that was a bit more (maybe $40?), but I had leftovers for half of this week.

No hard core financial posts today, but this month is turning out to be as good as a three paycheck month due to my tax refund and a small bonus.  Mainly, I just wanted to share the photo, to show that L.A. isn’t just an overpopulated smoggy traffic-y city near the ocean.  L.A. is whatever you want it to be.  🙂  [This is actually Malibu, but whatever.]

    Beautiful picture! I so want to live there… though that may have something to do with the freezing rain I got caught in here yesterday:)

    Sounds like you had the perfect low-key Valentines day. Kudos!

    [swoon] What a gorgeous view!!! Too bad we don’t have anything like that here in our “backyard”. Definitely sounds like an excellent Valentine’s day.
