My friends John, John and Thom invited me down to Amy & John's beautiful Redondo home. It almost makes commuting seem worth it. The weather was perfect. The crab shack was amazing. We nibbled on cheeses and drank champagne for hours while telling funny stories! Ellen surprised us from PDX. Then John bbq'd a delicious gyro feast -- including Amy's tzatziki sauce with fresh-from-their-garden cucumbers. A perfect way to spend 4 or 5 hours on a Sunday. I finally had to leave right as we watched the sun set from the beach.
