We were so lucky that the weather on the Christmas Day was warm and sunny. We went to hike in Franklin Canyon Park in Beverly Hills. Franklin Canyon Park is a public municipal park located near Benedict Canyon, at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains, in Los Angeles, California. The park comprises 605 acres, and is located at the purported geographical center of the city of Los Angele. The views here are just amazing.

The Shady Canyon Trail is an incredibly scenic route along Shady Canyon Drive in southern Irvine. Extending through the southern reaches of the historic Irvine Ranch and protected Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks, the trail is a hilly challenge well worth the effort for its dramatic views. And there are so many branch trails to explore.

Our First BBQ over Quarantine

We had a quite busy schedules over the past weekends—2 of back-to-back long runs, our first-time ever BBQ over this strange time and Sunday cocktail party. To be accurate, this is probably our first ever back-yard BBQ. And yes, we got a hand-down BBQ charcoal grill and it looks pretty vintage and cute.  We took a quite time to clean the whole thing. Other than that, we really enjoyed this new-found backyard activity.

Our mojo is to create memories over this quarantine time from the very beginning. So besides packed zoom meetings every day, we love to relax a little bit over the weekend. It is always so much fun to take time to prepare food, set up the table and craft home-made cocktails.

The favorite part for me is actually the patio lounge area.  And when we got there, there were not many people. So I can really checked out all of the details.

First of all, I love how they use pink on the floorings and chairs—-such a cheerful color that light up everybody’s mood immediately.

And different shades and patterns of yellow and white on pillows give eye a rest and also create resort-like casual atmosphere.
