We set a simple goal today:  buy bus passes and take a bus to the beach.  Here’s Mary on the #2 bus, now and forever the Valencia Beach Bus.

The weather was gorgeous.  I finally got some sunny pink in my face.  Of course, by Valencia standards, it’s still winter, so the beach was quiet.  A few surfers, families walking the beach, tourists from less friendly climates.  Most of the bars and cafes are open on the beach, and it was a great day to enjoy a cervesa or vino tinto and listen to the beach musicians.

Mary is always calmest and happiest at the beach.

So, it was a sunny day with mission accomplished.  What more can you ask for?
