After I landed in Los Angeles at 4:30, I went to Burton Chace Park in Marina del Rey.
Excited kindergarten age kids ran up to mention that sea lions were resting on a boat slip. I also liked seeing the Black Phoebe who flitted around the boats, though in general I did not see many birds.
I dinnered at El Pollo Loco, where my three pieces of chicken were accompanied by steamed broccoli. Then I went to my hotel room by LAX, where I spoke to my wife at length by telephone. Now I am up early and heading into action for a quick but important day trip.
