Good morning in Venice, CA. We opened the shades on our magnificent beach view room to welcome a cloudy and "cold" day. So much for swimming in the ocean.

... remember what time he said, so I got up and walked surreptitiously past the hotel reception. No sign of donuts. Sorry Nomes! My stomach was growling and yet again I was thankful for my ricecakes and peanut butter - and the cornflakes and bananas we'd obtained yesterday (which we ate from a cup!)
