This picture is the view from a seafood restaurant called Gladstone's off Sunset Blvd. I ate here one lovely afternoon with my friend Rachel after meeting her at the Lake Shrine. We shared French fries and shrimp that was so tasty and the view was the perfect accompaniment. I love the sound of the waves crashing and I simply just love the beach. This summer, my plan is to spend a good amount of time there. I want to lose track of how many afternoons I lay in warm sand.
