Putting down Some Roots

Our Saturday began with the gift of meeting some new people from the church we've been attending, Pacific Crossroads.  Neighborhood parties were hosted at the same time in ten different locations all over L.A. with the purpose of providing an opportunity for meeting people who live in your neighborhood.  The church is quite large and it was a great way to start developing friendships and to strengthen community within the church.   The best part for me was meeting two ladies that I had planned to contact regarding a Bible study and a service opportunity, Julie and Kathy.  So thankful that I met them- Julie's picking me up on Friday so I can attend the Bible Study and I plan on meeting Kathy (and the other volunteers) tomorrow afternoon to visit residents at a nursing home.   It's past time for me to put some roots down!

After the Californian style Cinco de Mayo picnic (no hamburgers & hot dogs, but quesadillas, tacos, etc) & good fellowship  we decided to drive south and explore a little with Walter, of course.  (He also went to the picnic).

Our first time to visit Fisherman's Village in Marina del Rey

Not sure what community this is, but it was about 30 minutes from where we live- so beautiful!

And it wouldn't be complete without a picture of an enormous ship going out of the Port of L.A.!

Walter was very tired after his outing (though he slept in the backseat for most of the time).  He decided to watch the Dog Whisperer with us- maybe he'll learn a thing or two!
