Hiking - For a Change

Since it was a long weekend, my roommate and myself went for hiking along the beaches of Los Angeles (Channel Islands and Carpeniteria State Beach) on Saturday. We started at 10 AM in the morning and drove to Channel Islands. After taking some snaps in the beach, we drove towards Carpeniteria State Beach. On the way, we stopped Mc Donalds and had our lunch. We then went to Carpeniteria State Beach and passed time till the evening. We started back at 4pm and reached home at 6 pm.
The drive was along the coast for around 20 miles along the US-101 state highway, which goes till San Francisco along the coast line and scenic like the East Coast Highway from Chennai to Pondy. The return back to LA was very windy as the weather changed and lots of debris was on the road, and it was scary to drive.

Friend's Census

Just thought of drawing a census of my friends becoming fathers, (Lakshmi, Kiruba, Muhad, Meiappane), the next addition in this list is Vaseem, who will be promoted somewhere in the mid of February, and its going to be a "boy" as per the scan reports. Except for few, most of them are married or either parents.

Married - 3
Parents(Father or Mother) - 6
Single - 3

After all for everyone, happiness is not the only thing in life. Right?
