In Topanga Canyon At a lovely time we didn’t we didn’t go hiking at 4. We got here at 7:30 in the morning So we could avoid the traffic that we ran into on the freeway That’s true Indiana Jones the greatest adventure of all time he doesn’t seem like he sleeps much He usually just puts his hat over his head and then something crazy happens and then he just wakes up and goes on that adventure She’s a Napper I gotta get on that Indiana Jones power napping schedule Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about Check out this view Gene this is Sun warrior Organic Sol good protein bar. It’s actually pretty good. It’s a Cinnamon roll flavor along with some cinnamon rolls all in all this hike is not crowded at all No, it’s beautiful. It’s pretty moderate. I mean, we didn’t see any snakes. We saw bunnies though. There’s rattlesnakes here there’s rattlesnakes on the hikes we go on in la Jean skitter snakes. We saw the snake one time in, North Carolina We saw like the smallest snake and then we didn’t even go on our hike It was a guidance named once I saw that snake I kind of freaked out She started talking about water moccasins all the time when we went swimming like she’s just trying to freak me out man so far Topanga’s beautiful. Very peaceful, very Serene if you’re in California, basically you’re looking for a really cool hike to do come check out the panga on a Friday morning It’s not crowded at all. It’s beautiful. We recommend it now. What are we doing now? We’re gonna go to the farmers market farmers might grab some snacks Check out what the locals have going on here. Let’s check it out So we’re here at the sapega farmers market and it’s open every Friday from 9:00 to 1:00 and it’s pretty cute I’m really happy to be here right now Sun dried tomato, garlic & olive oil… Cayenne garlic spread non-dairy and some white beans and tomato sauce and dill. Alright try it. Yeah, you have to do in one. You have no choices. Wow, it’s amazing. Thank you Here Cheers Now we’re gonna go get some lunch yes. Yeah. I’m excited lunchtime after that hike We’re gonna have to get some food. Oh, yeah Okay, so for lunch we’ve chosen to eat at the Topanga table we chose this place because They have sustainable practices and they use organic local produce So this is the butter coffee It’s really really tasty. It’s really inspiring. I was trained from that high feels like I need in need of caffeine. So Come back to life right now I Got a cremini mushroom omelet And there were some greens here and it came with potatoes and then I got a side of their homemade hot sauce and some homemade, aioli and I’m just sauce and everything up You saucy girl Thanks so I got the biscuits and gravy with an egg on top and It’s amazing. Yeah, my life has changed There’s so much going on it’s just like a fiesta for your eyes. Yes, there’s a lot happening It looks sort of like a pirate ship With tutus. Yeah, I mean that’s not wrong Watch out for that guy How do you feel in those feel kind of like Catwoman not like, you know christopher nolan’s Catwoman but like the Halle Berry cap I think it would be school with something like this. I mean that wouldn’t hurt it Like what you love about like what you love about living here What I love about living here, is that… Everybody knows your name it’s very community… so I recently went through cancer for an example… and my community… stood by me like I couldn’t even believe. I needed so much… medical assistance & help. There’s a band called Little Feet that plays music here… & they did a benefit for me & it was just like… I just really can’t believe that we can still… it’s not even the midwest & we can still have such a community of people, & children, & you know. I think that’s what I love about it the most. It’s the community part. Perfect So another really awesome thing about Topanga is that if you drive just like 10 minutes down the road due west Look at what’s in their backyard, it’s the Pacific Ocean We stand on the opposite shore And I’ll say one thing the the weather here in Topanga has changed from being fairly cool to pretty hot and now it’s like actually, it’s kind of perfect right now, but Yeah, so just beware maybe bring like a light sweater or something. I don’t know pretty chill – chill people are surfing it up. Yeah Okay, so leaving the beach right now and now we’re going to Go see a friend that we actually met while we were working at the restaurant that we work at He was a regular who would come in and he actually moved to Topanga Canyon About a year ago because we’re here he invited us to come over to his house and we’re gonna check out where he lives Ask him some questions And get his thoughts on Topanga and what it’s like to live here.
