Best to all the people in Japan (including friends) during their recent earthquake & Tsunami. It makes us all realize the importance of being kind now. As the saying goes, "There's no promise of tomorrow". Love & peace to everyone in Japan, & everyone all over the world who is going through whatever challenge now.
The Santa Monica Walking Tours are busier & busier now. Thanks to everyone who has called & e-mailed about current & upcoming Tours=so appreciated!
Santa Monica recently had their "Buy Local" Santa Monica annual event on the Third Street Promenade. Last Saturday the crowds were out supporting local businesses, with shopping, raffles, and entertainment. The weather held up, as there were predictions of rain which ended up holding off till late Saturday eve. That said, the heavens decided to open up as Sunday's Marathon was off to a great start "&" hit with those heavenly rains! Some might say a bit much, yet that is what's brilliant about athletes & supportive cheering crowds. No adversity can diminish the greatness of this annual event as over 27,000 chose to partake in a wet, yet glorious annual running event that ended in our Santa Monica! Congratulations to the winners!! I was happily cheering & so proud that the finish line was in our beautiful city!!! Check out "What's Happening Santa Monica" for current happenings. Alicia Silverstone spoke tonite at the Main Library, promoting her book, "A Kind Diet". Model, Claudia Schiffer was also out at Santa Monica beach today with her kids, while staying in one of our popular hotels nearby. Reese Witherspoon was seen taking a Santa Monica run yesterday, then heading to one of our terrific local spas! A little rain doesn't stop anyone from coming to Santa Monica. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
