Yesterday, we had to run some errands, but we couldn't manage to get out of the house before 5:15. I thought we were in for a long drive, it being Friday and all. But my husband (the superhero) made a right turn and a left and found a shortcut that spit us out right where we needed to go. Lovely!
We passed by this monument on our travels. The plane is a Douglas DC-3 named "The Spirit of Santa Monica." The Museum of Flying, which has been closed since 2002, will be relocated adjacent to this site.
