My better half Mr. Twister, depicted pleased as punch above, borrowed a friend's Honda S2000 convertible for our top down adventure yesterday, a day trip up the coast to visit my brother and his wife who were holidaying in Oxnard (halfway betwixt L.A. and Santa Barbara, Calif.) My snapshots however represent our homeward return south, as you'll note in the orientation of the Pacific Ocean.
Below are the Sycamore Cove dunes north of Malibu, wherein it is amusing to contemplate whether or not the enormous Babylonian set (with with its bigger than life-sized plaster elephants) of D.W. Griffith's epic silent film Intolerance is buried beneath same as rumored. Legends like this are based on other verified instances: Cecil B. DeMille's 10 Commandments' set indeed remains buried beneath the Nipomo Dunes near Pismo Beach farther north up the California coastline.
Above right, the brother in question Randall, on a glorious beach day in Oxnard. Note fashionable "Rock Action, Stooges" t-shirt, part of my Xmas GiftPak to him last year. Perfect summer weather: cool enough for me, warm enough for Mr. Twister
