Okay, this sucks. Somehow I lost the thread, then, after replying what I wanted to say to finish the report, i was logged out. I'll try this again...
First stop, the Lane Victory in San Pedro. It's a WWII vessel that is lovingly cared for entirely by a volunteer crew. They keep her nice, and I wish the pictures did her justice!:
Then back to the almost empty parking lot for a smoke and the obligatory "look everybody, I am a real boy" Pinnochio self portrait:
I'm going to do this in chunks so I don't get logged out, so nest post, more San Pedro and the little ride to Hermosa Beach.
