We went back to Santa Monica and Venice, where we used to live. I lived there for 5 years in a studio apartment at the beach and loved it. I loved the cool weather, the fog, walking to the beach in the winter when it was deserted, living off Main Street and having my local pub. After N and I met (in that same pub), we lived in a beautiful apartment off Abbot-Kinney with a small yard and a kitchen with yellow tile.
We spent some time at Cloverfield Park, which is next to the airport, and then went to the canals, where we got married. The lot where we married is now filled by a large glass house, but at one time it was filled with a string quartet and 30 of my closest family and friends.
