Mike served a year of his LDS mission in Southern California. He served in the Rancho Palos Verdes area, southwest of downtown Los Angeles. It is a beautiful area. I have returned to the area with Mike a handful of times in our marriage, and love it every time. It was important to me (Mike is way less sentimental than me) to take our children to the area.
The first attempt we made to visit the area, was Saturday evening. A thick layer of fog covered the area, and this was the view when we got to the spot of the much anticipated view.
LDS) temple. Mike visited this temple monthly while on his mission, and although like I said, he isn't sentimental about it, I was. Although my sentimentality ended pretty quickly. Because we all know my attention span versus his attention span when looking at displays/visitors centers/grounds, etc.
