I once had a bad feeling about the LA region of California, based on nothing. Back again after some years and visits I must confess this New Yorker is fascinated byLA. I’m in Long Beach and with just on my first night I’m jazzed to be here, especially Long Beach, as I know so little about it. It was a very pleasant night as I walked around Pike on the water. On a mid week night the restaurants had food tastings from the bounty of choices. For backdrop for a band Queen Mary stood proud. I’m going to like it here in Long Beach and could feel it right away.
