Things I Am Going To Miss About LA, Part 1

Our real estate agent just left with a stack of signed paperwork that essentially means we have sold our house. There is a bunch of too-ing and fro-ing to be done before it’s closed escrow but we now have a tentative date for that – less than seven weeks from today. Shit is getting real up in here…

So, this has me thinking about what I will miss most about Los Angeles. The picture above is my road warrior Surly LHT hanging out at one of my favourite LA spots – the Silver Lake Meadow. The SLM is a great spot to catch some rays, catch some zzzzs, watch birds, coyotes, hawks and hipsters, practice yoga, meditate, drinks, play games and generally have a good time. Practicing in the meadow today got me thinking about the many outdoor activities and places I will miss when I no longer live in Los Angeles. Here is a list of a few of them:


  • The Silver Lake Meadow
  • Pop-up Guerrilla Yoga (at the Silver Lake Meadow)
  • Little Dume beach, the best-kept beach secret in LA County
  • Sitting on my deck looking out at Mt. Baldy and San Jacinto
  • Sitting in my backyard cactus garden with the fire pit lit and a craft beer in hand
  • The Getty Center, to watch the sunset
  • The Arroyo Seco
  • Echo Mountain trail, at the top of Lake Ave., Pasadena
  • Watching Jane play Beach Ultimate on any of LA’s beaches
  • The weather, which makes it all possible
