July 22, 2011. The blog has been a ghost town lately, as we've been having lunch and dinner appointments with so many great people here in Southern California. On top of that, we've been scoping out the colleges around for our daughter, and looking at options for what we're going to do a year from now when we move back to this part of the world for a while. I've seen lots of great sights that I'd like to sketch, just no time to do it. Finally I woke up early this morning, sat on our balcony and sketched the Sheraton Hotel across the parking lot. We're about a stone's throw from Disneyland, so we see all the tourists walking there every morning, then all tuckered out at the end of the day with their balloons and mouse ears.
