Even since I’ve been back in town, I’ve had an intense urge to walk Abbott Kinney. I think it’s because I didn’t get enough wandering / shopping / picture time on our honeymoon. Unfortunately, we brought the pup with us thus morning and it was just plain annoying. Many stores don’t open until 11am on Sundays and the coffee shops all had lines out the door. I smelled some incense in the Mystic Journey bookstore and touched just about every product in Urbanic, but as our walk progress, I felt more and more frustrated.
H, being the awesome husband he is, offered to drop the dog at home and go back out in search of a place that would satisfy my wandering needs. At first we aimed for the Main Street Santa Monica area but he suggested a place he’d gone before that he thought I’d like. L’Epicerie in Culver City. Bingo.
My food was good, my latte was great, and afterwards we headed out to furniture stores and an open house – none of which were productive, but what a relaxing day.
