I have to make a quick run to San Diego tomorrow morning. Rather than risk the traffic from Los Angeles Helaine and I headed down to my cousins in Lake Forest in Orange County. It was really just a good excuse to come and visit. Michael and I have always been close. Melissa is the sister Helaine never had.
We stopped for some pizza before heading back to the house. This was ranch land before houses were built. There were certainly no lakes in what is now Lake Forest.
While we sat around their firepit I snapped this shot of the backyard.
