Today we visited the cemetery to put plants on the grave plaques. My mother used to do that all the time and now I'm the one left to do it. And since we aren't here that much, it's trickier. In October we left jade plants since they can survive a long time without water. They were still alive, though struggling. In one I had added soil, and that one was doing much better. Added water to the dirt and brought new ones for the other plaques. We'll check them out before we leave and then they'll just have to survive as best as they can.
And then we walked along Ballona Creek in the afternoon sun.
They've prettified part of the trail and added signs and walkway that is separate from the bike trail - but only for a short distance from Centinela.
I've been pretty supportive of graffiti artists on this blog, but here's an example that I don't think has any redeemable qualities. Just juvenile destruction of other people's stuff - not even important people's stuff. Just ordinary people who walk or run or bike along the creek.
Gives potheads a bad name.
