Today I had a Santa Monica adventure with one of my best friends in the world, Ms. Marlin. After trying on a plethora of different colored and textured rain jackets, groping every alluring fleece, and gawking at coveted backpacking equipment at REI, we had a delightful dinner at Blue Plate on Montana Ave. The service was friendly, the ambience bright, and the meal scrumptious! I ordered a Cali chicken wrap with avocado and a salad and Hannah had a turkey wrap with a delicious tomato soup. We shared a basket of these thin sweet potato fries and had such a warm experience here. Cheers!
