365 Has an LA Play Day

Our little So Cal group had a delightful day out together! We boarded Amtrak at our respective stops along the coast, meeting up and riding together to Union Station in Los Angeles. I let my collage feature the newest member of our group, M. Brutus @ mbrutus, and used some of my people pictures so you only have to say "You all look so great!" only one time... We spent most of our day on Olvera Street, the oldest area of Los Angeles where we had a "sabroso!" lunch before touring the oldest standing hacienda (home) in LA.

We're talkers, and what fun that was getting updates about families, travels and Ron's new lens! (Kidding aside, he worked long hours, out of town, for two weeks and rewarded himself with that beautiful lens!)

You'll likely see more of my photos this week as I'm approaching "Crazy Days" again as I see the time left in SoCal winding down with more than I can possibly do in the month ahead! Bear with me!

And to all who wished me the best since my latest medical procedure, thank you for that and the wonderful news is that the revision of meds and focusing carefully on what I eat has left me pain free this week! After 3 months, it's turning everything around for the better! Big hugs to each of you for all that!

I'll set my morning aside tomorrow to look at your photos as I know I'm missing so much! ♥

---For more photos of our day, drop by to see what Ron @stray_shooter, Anita @aglennc and Marshall @mbrutus are posting! --
"You all look so great!"

Wish I was closer so I could join in - it looks like great fun had by all!
So pleased you have enjoyed a pain free week!

@aglennc @stray_shooter @jaybutterfield @mbrutus Look what I came across today! I may not have made the invitation in that he lives up in Big Bear, but perhaps he'll join us another time ... https://365project.org/karvelis/365/2017-04-22

@petaqui We have a lovely group of people in this region, all living within about a 90 minute drive at the most from one another (some closer). We've been getting together for 2-3 years now, and include new people if they'd like to come along. It's easy to become friends when we begin with something in common like photography, and we know a little of one another through this site. It's always been fun! (Some of the people on 365 have come to visit us in Nova Scotia when we go there for the summer!)

keep me up to date for next time i'll come down!
posted April 24th, 2017  
@karvelis Thanks for the follow! We may not have another organized gathering until September, but there's a cluster of us near me, and another faction in the SD area. As we've been here for over 40 years, we've likely crossed paths in the past!
