Almost Paradise

This past weekend while the Northeast was getting buried under a couple feet of snow, LA was experiencing unusually warm temperatures. On Sunday, Dave and I along with our friends George and Molly decided to take advantage of the weather and head up the cost a few miles north of Malibu to Paradise Cove. As it turned out, we weren't the only ones with the idea.
We arrived at the restaurant along the beach around 11:30 and there was already an 1 1/2 hr wait. Despite the lure of the red lobsters in the tank and the vibrating lobster they handed us, our stomachs were in no mood to wait it out. We turned to the outside patio where the tables are open-seating or should I say sit-at-your-own-risk-for-fear-of-the-hovering-people-hoping-for-your-seating. Dave did a masterful job of striking up conversation with some over 50 gals and we had our table in no time. The afternoon was saved! and in LA fashion we settled in to enjoy brunch and take in the beach sights.....
