End of 2018 Beach League

I haven't posted about the last couple of weeks of beach league.  Honestly, there isn't much to report.  We ended the season with a perfect record...of losses.  Yes, didn't win a game all season.  Second time I've been on a team like that.

On one hand, I certainly did enjoy the time at the beach.  I don't make it down there enough, and this gives me several weeks in a row to go.  On the other hand, it would be nice to win an occasional game.  Is that really too much to ask?

LA Times Festival of Books 2018

April 21st, I skipped beach ultimate Frisbee and headed to the LA Times Festival of books.  I haven't missed this event in years, and I wasn't going to start now if I had a choice about it.

The day was pleasantly warm.  It felt like it was going to get hot at one point, but some clouds came in and cooled it off.  It was great to be outside enjoying the pleasant spring weather.

I got lots of hugs from authors who are friends.  They were so happy to see me and see that I was doing well.  That definitely made me smile.

The day's still not quite what it was.  The fact that fewer bookstores participate or are even around to participate is the reason why.  Still, I bought a few books and spent the time talking to authors, so it was fun.  Left earlier than I would back in the day, but I'm glad I went for sure.

And, of course, I got to spend the day with my friend Angelique, which always makes it well worth while.
