Wordless Wednesday: A Christmas Morning Sky

Christmas Morning sky in Los Angeles 2020

We spent a couple of hours with our daughters and their families in a beautiful park in Los Angeles (Culver City) Christmas morning. It was a perfect-weather day for winter in the low 70s.


Normally we would have been with everyone at our one daughter's house but this year everyone felt we had to be more cautious. My wife and I drove up early in the morning to drop off gifts at our 2 daughters' doors, then a bit later we all gathered in the park, appropriately distanced and all wearing masks, to enjoy some time together.


The 4 grandkids went home to finish their gift unwrapping and we made the drive back to Carlsbad. It was a wonderful and very special day!

Hi Jeff,  Thank you for sharing your wonderful, creative family Christmas - and the Christmas morning sky is beautiful.  Christmas may look a little different this year,  but as long as it is filled with love of family - it is wonderful.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker Everyone agreed that while it was not our tradition it was the best way to be safe, other than not seeing anyone at all!

Beautiful picture, Jeff. You, like so many this year, celebrated Christmas in a different way... but it was still gratifying. Goes to show we need to appreciate what we have and not worry about what we don't have.

Dolores and I have missed the normal family gatherings during the holidays.

Happy New Year!

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS  I just happened to look up and knew it deserved a photo. I thought the clouds were pretty interesting.


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California, Inc.) 16 days ago

What a shame Jeff that we live in this world like this when our Governor can hug and hang out with his political cronies and friends at $850 a person restaurant with no mask at tax payer dollar... maybe you should call him up what is the difference in his part of the world and ours??Endre
