Once again it was time to venture back across the Atlantic for our annual visit home to Britain and so far the weather has provided us with a sunny welcome (although it looks like things may turn rainy in the days to come).
Chiswick in bloom
I've also been enjoying the delights of the British high street and all the fantastic retail stores. I really do miss the likes of M&S, WHSmith, Waitrose, Waterstones, Sainsbury's, Paperchase and all the little cook shops and gift stores, and don't get me started on all my favourite foods in the supermarkets.
Although there have been a few things that have reminded me of my L.A. home.
Not West Hollywood's Sunset Strip
Let's hope the British weather will be kind the rest of our stay...
