A LONG Walk with Ben...
When we left the house this evening, it was pretty light out; by the time we got home, the moon was on high.
This is the corner of Beverly Drive and Charleville, in front of Ragg Tattoo (my favorite children's shop.) The first California Pizza Kitchen is just behind Ben. We walk this block on a very regular basis; the kids often walk over after school for a Jamba Juice or coffee. The selection of snackage is quite nice; Starbucks, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Peet's Coffee, Urth Caffe,

Koo Koo Roo, Chin Chin, Mako, Kiyono Sushi, Subway, San Sai, Zen Zoo, Bossanova, Burger 90210, and now Pinkberry, all on one city block!

We stayed on Charleville and snapped this sundown shot on the corner of Rodeo Drive.

We circled 'round the streets, trying to get the maximum amount of ground covered. Here we were at Wilshire between Beverly Drive and El Camino. At left, the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

Circling up Camden Drive at Brighton, I had to take a shot of Teuscher Chocolatier. They always have the most festive packaging; the little bird and bunny boxes are themselves a fabulous gift; filled with their signature champagne truffles, an even better treat! Thankfully, they were closed for the evening; who could resist such temptation!?!

Walking a few blocks further east, we waved a big hello to our girls at Paper Source (France joined me in some window jumping, Monica was at the register closing.) Good to see them!

Finishing up the walking marathon with a cup of hot tea at Urth Caffe. Ben had the spearmint, I had the English breakfast blend with milk. We were happy to see friends Sarah and Michelle Wolff there, leaving for their Palm Springs vacation (smart to wait until the traffic eased.)
We finally decided that we'd had enough, and made it home after nine.
